Rethugs Plead Mercy for Pedophile Hastert

http://www.salon.com/2016/04/25/republicans_rush_to_defend_dennis_hastert_plead_court_for_leniency_in_pedophile_hush_money_case/
snip:
A list of the names of people who wrote to support Hastert was made public in court Friday, complete with over 40 letters of support for Hastert from the likes of former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay and the head wresting coach of the University of Chicago. Hastert’s defense team said he had received more than 60 letters of support for Hastert in recent months, but nearly 20 writers did not want their letters made public or had requested their letters be “withdrawn” from consideration after disturbing details of Hastert’s pedophilia emerged. (The Chicago Tribune published all of the letters released, and they may be found here):

Hastert’s supporters included a handful of former national and state politicians as well as local leaders, board members, police officers and others from his home base in rural Kendall County.

“We all have our flaws, but Dennis Hastert has very few,” DeLay wrote in his defense of Hastert. “He is a good man that loves the Lord.”s

Wait, I thought Delay was one of those Rethugs trying to impeach Bill Clinton for his behavior. You can always count on Rethugs for their remarkable degree of hypocrisy, and their ducking behind the "Lord" when in trouble.

4. They should both go.

Frankly, there's a lesson in there about people who are sanctimonious moralizers.

6. They both can probably afford high-powered defense teams.

Which puts them at significant advantage over most of the people caught in the criminal justice system for what our government deems far more "serious crimes"

8. I bet it was a mob of GOP all-star criminals.

 

All pretending to give a shit about morality, then bleating out the word God. Why do people still fall for this shit?
