7. Some freeper lives in an alternate reality:
Hastert was a crony that DeLay installed as Speaker. DeLay was the power behind all of these shady deals. It doesn't surprise me that Hastert got his hands dirty.

I didn't realize how devastating Newt's departure was in 1998. Newt kept DeLay and company in check. Once Newt (and finally Dick Armey) left the leadership, there was no moral compass to stop the government-by-lobbyist scheme of DeLay.
