House page scandal puts Hastert's foe in spotlight

by James Kimberly
Tribune staff reporter
October 9,2006

Early in his quixotic campaign to unseat U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert, John Laesch once scheduled a day of news conferences around the 14th Congressional District to discuss his energy policy. No one showed up.

But after Hastert came under fire last week for his handling of a complaint about the suggestive electronic messages the former Rep. Mark Foley (R-FL)sent to an underage page, the 32-year-old Leasch found himself in the national spotlight.

As speculation mounted that Hastert might resign the speakership attention turned to his previously unknown Democratic opponent.

1. They didn't show up? The Republican house organs didn't show up?
Oh, there's a special place in hell for those bastards. Election? What election?

I want the Fairness Doctrine BACK. And I want strict limits on TV ad time. Enough.
