Hastert duped into letting stranger inside

October 11, 2006

BY LYNN SWEET Sun-Times Columnist

House Speaker J. Dennis Hastert, with his job on the line because of the spiraling Mark Foley cyberspace page sex scandal, was duped Tuesday into letting a stranger into his Plano home -- a serious security breach.

Hastert literally let his guard down and allowed in his house a hustling, self-promoting evangelist little known in this country, the Houston-based K.A. Paul, who at 7:30 a.m. arrived at the speaker's home with a camera-wielding associate.

How Paul and his aide, Dennis Ryan, got to Hastert's door is a tale of apparent chance. How the publicity-hungry Paul and Ryan walked through it was a matter of a "frank discussion" later in the day with the federal security detail assigned to Hastert around the clock.

All top congressional leaders are provided security, with the protective force surrounding Hastert most visible because as speaker, he is the third in line to the presidency.

Hastert was led to believe he was meeting with a supporter. He was surprised to find out otherwise, the Sun-Times has learned. Paul said he asked Hastert to resign. He also said he prayed with the speaker and "laid hands" on him after a 40-minute meeting.

2. I do not want to think about anyone laying hands on Denny.
This was way too much information and it's way too early to read it.

5. Didn't you read my post? For shit's sake, it's too early for this.
For anyone Photoshopping this, have the decency to wait until after lunch.

7. Maybe some Pages should be assigned to protect Denny.
"Now remember, sir, NEVER let a stranger into your house! And when you talk trash on the net, sir, you might be THINKING you're talking to a 15-year-old dude, while you're really talking to some old geezer with his boxer shorts down around his ankles!"

4. Wait...people trust this guy to do the public good, and he can't
even fend off a couple of religious people who show up at his door?

Hell, even *I* can do that. :eyes:

6. Ohhhh... so THAT'S the Official Story!
I had seen this this morning on Huffington Post and went back to retrieve it, to post it here on DU. But the story had disappeared.

Now I see why: the original story was simply that Hastert had "prayed" with this phony preacher. I see that Hastert now says he was taken advantage of?

This idiot is Speaker of the House???

8. The worst has happened. Macacagate has met Pagegate.
This Paul guy was BORN IN INDIA!

Okay, well, the original "macaca" guy was born in Virginia, but hey, why split hairs?

ABANDON SHIP ALL REPUBLICANS!
