Father of The Patriot Act Pays $3.5 Million to Hush Sex Scandal

Dennis_Hastert_2Dennis Hastert, the former U.S. House Speaker who pushed through The Patriot Act in 2001 was recently indicted on charges related to paying over $3,5 million in hush money to keep an old sex scandal under wraps.

It seems that the very purpose of The Patriot Act is what led to Hastert’s indictment.

Here’s the press wire report revealing Hastert’s banking law violations:

Former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert allegedly violated banking laws to obtain money to hide a sexual relationship he had while teaching high school in Illinois, officials said.

Two federal law enforcement officials told the Los Angeles Times on Friday that Hastert agreed to pay $3.5 million to a man he allegedly had a sexual relationship with when he taught at a Yorkville, Ill., high school. The alleged sexual misconduct happened prior to Hastert’s time in Congress.

“It goes back a long way, back to then,” one of the sources said. “It has nothing to do with public corruption or a corruption scandal. Or to his time in office.”

While Big Government statists like President Obama and Senate Leader Mitch McConnell currently battle to keep The Patriot Act as the law of the land, isn’t it sweet irony… and fitting justice… that one of the few indictments The Patriot Act actually nails is one of their own?
