Wow, nothing like a closed mini mind
Do Democrats need one more voter sufficiently that they ignore child rape? d Oh wait....Lolita Island......and that (no longer) late night "comedian" who got such laughs out urging it happen to the young daughter of a candidate he didn't like? Yeah, I can see how they can just ignore...
Except of course until now you haven't once said that Hastert deserved to be locked up- despite so many previous opportunities
Glad to point them all out again- all of the many opportunities you had previously here at USMB- even when you were posting in the same thread- and you couldn't manage to find any outrage at what Hastert had done.
Just pointing out again what a Partisan hack you are.
Here are two threads devoted to Hastert- while you were posting at USMB then- you never commented.
Hastert is a Child Molesting Pervert?- not one condemnation by easy.
Former Speaker Hastert sent to prison for crime he was NOT convicted. Is this right?- not one condemnations by easy.
In this thread where Hastert was mentioned- Easy was a big poster- except when it came to responding about Hastert...
Anti-Free Speech Snowflake Berkeley Protest Organizaers Tied To Pedophiles / Pedophile Groups
Easy- when commenting in this thread and instead of ‘agreeing’ me- found Hastert being convicted of molesting boys- ‘funny’
More specifically- after I posted this:
Meanwhile in the real world- the former GOP House leader was convicted- and confessed to molesting boys.
Easy’s next post- was this:
No, I just have an aversion to publicly exposed, embarassingly humiliated, pathelogical liars. Must be your thing, though. Good for you - have fun with that.
Not one condemnation by Easy of Hastert in that thread-- or the two threads specifically addressing Hastert’s conviction and sentencing.
Not only did you not condemn Hastert- you found my condemnation of Hastert- 'funny'.
You are a vile partisan hack.
Of course he never commented about Hastert- even when he was posting in threads where Hastert's child rape was being discussed.
Until today- has easy ever condemned any child rapist- who he couldn't also identify as a 'liberal' or a Democrat?
Maybe- but I can't find that post.
Doesn't change two facts:
a) Polanski raped that girl- he drugged her and he sodomized her.
b) He ran for it when the judge threw out the plea bargain- which a judge has every legal authority to do.
Polanski has evaded justice ever since- if he is ever caught and brought into serve- he should serve in the same cell that scum Hastert was placed in. Hastert of course got off easy because of the statute of limitations.....
Easy doesn't give a damn about punishing a child rapist.
Just like he never gave a damn about Hastert's child rape- he doesn't care about punishing Polansky- for easy it is ALWAYS about partisan politics- he can't use a crime to attack liberals or Democrats- he won't bother.
No- you are just playing your "use a crime to attack Liberals and Democrats"- that is the only game you play here at USMB- every day of the week.
Why do Conservatives hate Children so much?
Other than that they are potential liberals?
For the dumb Contard creeps Dennis Hastert is the cool Conservative Republican former speaker of the House.
Conservatives don't care about his rape victims- plural.
Hastert wasn't charged with molestation- because the statute of limitations on child rape had run out.
He wasn't convicted of child rape because the statute of limitations ran out.
But Hastert did confess to sexually molesting children- just as Polansky did- luckily Hastert was nailed on a related charge- and served some time- and Polansky deserves behind bars too.
Dennis Hastert admits sexually abusing teenage boys
Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert on Wednesday admitted to sexually abusing teenage boys during his time as a high school wrestling coach in a Chicago suburb before his career as an elected official.
Struggling to stand in federal court Wednesday, 74-year-old Hastert gripped his walker, approached the microphone and said that he "mistreated" some of his wrestlers and apologized.
"They looked to me, and I took advantage of them," Hastert said as he awaited his sentencing after pleading guilty last fall to breaking federal banking laws in a hush-money case. "I apologize to the court and to the people of the United States."
Judge Thomas Durkin sentenced Hastert to 15 months in prison, a $250,000 fine, along with two years of supervised release on the condition that he get sex offender treatment. Prosecutors had recommended a six-month sentence. Durkin called Hastert a "serial child molester" and said he must not contact any of his victims.
"That's necessary to protect the victims," the judge said.
One of the men who has accused Hastert of sexual abuse years ago identified himself in the courtroom Wednesday before Hastert spoke.
The man, previously known only as "Individual D," identified himself as Scott Cross, 53, who lives in Chicago and works in finance. He has a wife and two children.
"Coach Hastert sexually abused me," said Cross, who teared up at times as he identified himself publicly for the first time.
The allegations stem from the time Hastert worked as a wrestling coach at Yorkville High School in a Chicago suburb between 1965 and 1981.
Scott Cross, dressed in a business suit, recounted that he was alone in the locker room with Hastert, who told Cross he could help him lose weight by giving him a massage. Cross said that after a few minutes of a massage, Hastert tried to perform a sex act on him and Cross said he then jumped up and ran out of the room.
Cross said he felt alone and embarrassed and never told anyone about the incident and never discussed it with Hastert.
"I've had trouble sleeping and working," he said, and called the decision to come forward a "huge personal struggle."
He is the younger brother of longtime Illinois House Minority Leader Tom Cross, who served in that leadership role from 2002 to 2013 and retired from the legislature last year. The Chicago Tribune notes that Cross has credited Hastert with introducing him to politics and helping him move up the ladder.
In court, Hastert's lawyer said the former speaker had suggested that the elder Cross could write a support letter on his behalf. But the Tribune reported that by the time the request was made, Cross was aware that his younger brother was "Individual D" and he "did not respond." Hastert's lawyer mentioned the request in order to suggest that Hastert's mental health is severely diminished and could explain why he has lied throughout the investigation.
Prosecutors also called Jolene Burdge, the sister of an alleged Hastert victim who died in 1995. Burdge testified first and read aloud a letter her late brother wrote to their mother five months before he died of AIDS, and she accused Hastert of "sexually molesting" her brother.
"You took Steve's right to develop his sexual identity in a normal, healthy way," Burdge said directly to Hastert, who arrived to court Wednesday in a wheelchair. "Don't be a coward, Mr. Hastert. Tell the truth. What you did wasn't misconduct; it was sexual abuse of a minor."
Admonishing Hastert from the stand, she said, "You were supposed to keep him safe, not violate him," and she continued, "You took his innocence and turned it against him," turning him toward a life of high-risk behavior that eventually killed him.
"I will make you accountable for molesting my brother. I knew your secret and you couldn't bribe your way out," she added.
Hastert, an Illinois Republican, served in Congress from 1987 to 2007, and is the longest-serving House speaker, holding that post from 1999 to 2007.
Cross and Burdge's brother are among at least four victims who have made "credible allegations of sexual abuse," according to a report earlier this month in The Chicago Tribune.
