This former “elected public servant” big shot is yet another who committed heinous acts on kids.
“Three decades after he allegedly touched five young wrestlers inappropriately, Dennis Hastert pleaded guilty yesterday to failing to report major cash transactions feds say were used to silence a young man he’d abused as a Yorkville, Ill., high school coach.”
Yet OZY reports “The guilty plea carries a potential five years in prison, but leniency is expected at the 74-year-old ex-congressman’s sentencing April 27.”
Why should courts afford leniency to former elected public servants and priests who violate the kids that look to them for guidance … the kids that trusted them?
Hastert sexually violated them when he was a teacher; teachers get blasted with jail time. Now, because he’s a former “elected public servant” – leniency is expected. Not because he violated kids but because he “failed to report major cash transactions.”
Send the SOB to prison for a long time! For the right reasons.
