Re: Politician behind Online Poker's UIGEA Indicted for Bank Fraud

Can there just be one victim? I mean does a sexual predator stop after abusing just one? I have a feeling more victims will come out. Then again these were gay relationships and the victims might feel embarrassed to come out.

Funny thing is how this closet homosexual voted against most of the bills related to gay rights.

I think Jerry Sandusky might have a better response to this than I can dare to propose.

The role of a politician is (ostensibly) to fulfill the will of his/her constituents; not to vote according to his/her conscience. That is the broad and just way of the US political system, and I agree with it.

Now, why someone like this moron would affiliate himself with a political party opposed to one's self-interest--that is a matter for a greater amateur psychiatrist than myself.

He is blaming his victim's parents because if they had taught this to their son Hastert wouldn't be in the position he is in.

Actually, regulations for tracking currency transactions were already in place YEARS before the Patriot Act.

Why do you call him a closet homosexual? Is it because the victim is a male?

Hastert is a hypocrite and a predator,but am I the only one bothered that the feds can lock you up for lying about how you spend your own money.The level of hypocrisy inflicted on the citizens by the US bureaucracy is reaching Soviet style levels.

This is probably one of those instances where prosecutors were looking for an alternative crime to charge him with since the statute of limitations of his other crimes have expired.

If he broke banking laws because he was being extorted for something that wasn't a crime I would hope there wouldn't be charges. For example let's say someone pulled that much money out in the same way to pay off the ransom for a kidnapped loved one I don't think there would have been these charges.

He is being paroled this month, but will spend the rest of his live being sued civilly:

"Hastert, 75, returned to Illinois in mid-July after his release from a federal prison in Rochester, Minn., where he served part of a 15-month sentence. 

Authorities have declined to provide details about Hastert's whereabouts these last few weeks, but it is likely he is serving out the remaining days of his federal sentence on home electronic monitoring or at a halfway house.

...

Individual A said Hastert agreed in 2010 to pay him $3.5 million if he didn't speak out that Hastert once molested him in the 1970s, when Individual A was 14, while the two stayed overnight in a hotel room as part of a wrestling trip. ...

The former student, identified as Individual A in the explosive 2015 federal indictment, sued Hastert last year, accusing him of breach of contract for not paying him the full agreed upon $3.5 million.

Hastert had paid him about half when the FBI got involved."

Re: Politician behind Online Poker's UIGEA Indicted for Bank Fraud

The article led me to a wiki page for politicians who were caught committing crimes. Most were for fraud, but alot of them were caught/sued for being pedophiles. Some were re-elected, only in 'Murica, Sickening.

Should we presume, you mean "a single person other than you", of course ?

Curious, who did you call ?

How many of this "alot of ..... pedophiles" politician sample you cite were re-elected after their crimes were charged ?

Do you have a link that supports your claim ? It sounds dubious to me, sorry.

Would you feel differently if some of these politicians you cite as "caught committing crimes" in their spare time had supported online poker legislatively or otherwise in the US ?

A hypothetical: if Donald Trump is accused at some point by the Special counsel of committing some crime, say money-laundering in his business affairs, but he went to bat politically 100% for online poker legalization, how would you feel then ?

Re: Politician behind Online Poker's UIGEA Indicted for Bank Fraud

from USA TODAY, July 18, 2017:

Before Judge Thomas Durkin handed down the sentence, Hastert acknowledged he abused Individual A and other boys in his charge.

“I want to apologize to the boys I mistreated when I was a coach,” he said. “They looked (up) at me and I took advantage of them.”

The former speaker served 20 years in Congress and eight years as the highest-ranking member of the House before retiring in 2007. He is the longest serving Republican speaker in history.

At his sentencing last year, Durkin called Hastert a "serial child molester" and ordered him to attend a sex offender treatment program.

"Nothing is more disturbing than having serial child molester and speaker of the House in the same sentence," Durkin said.

What a scumbag.

There were 2 who were re-elected after being convicted for fraud, not pedophilia, sorry. It's a wikipedia page about politicians who were corrupt.

There were several convicted of pedophilia. The article lists them under the sitting president at the time.

Were ANY of the politician pedophiles re-elected after having been charged, let alone after having been convicted ?

That does seem to have been your claim.

Link to the wikipedia you are relying upon ?

It is hardly news that some politicians are corrupt. I am quite positive that this occurs in every country on the planet, in the past, in the present, and in the future. Comments like "only in 'Murica" are offensive and do not belong in NVG.

I will leave it at that for now.
