Look who is going to bat for Dennis Hastert.

If Hastert had been black, Hispanic and/or a democrat?
These same assholes would want him hanged.

Invoking God, Prominent GOPíers Write Letters for Dennis Hastert, Sexual Abuser of Four Boys

April 25, 2016 by Terry Firma 172 Comments

More than 40 people of prominence have written letters to a judge, requesting mercy for Dennis Hastert, the former Speaker of the House who is awaiting sentencing in a bank fraud and perjury case.

Formally, Hastert is merely facing the music for illegally-structured cash withdrawals, and for lying to federal authorities about what the cash was for. But itís Hastertís sexual abuse of at least four boys under his care that has most people a lot more upset. The cash was hush money that Hastert paid to someone who knew his secret. The statute of limitations has run out on the child abuse, so Hastert faces at most six month in jail ó for skirting banking regulations, and for his fibs to the FBI.

But even that measly sentence is inhumane, believes Tom DeLay, the former U.S. House Majority Leader, and no stranger to financial shenanigans himself.

In a letter defending Hastertís character, DeLay referenced not only Hastertís ill health, but also his faith, writing

ďHe is a good man that loves the Lord. He doesnít deserve what he is going through.Ē

2. His faith in not getting caught has long been shattered

Fugg the 'collective' pack. Delay should be in prison as well.
He loved the lord so much that he abused at least five boys. Good man my ass.

4. Dennis Hastert goes to bat for Dennis Hastert

"It is important to have a national notification system to help safely recover children kidnapped by child predators," he said. "But it is equally important to stop those predators before they strike, to put repeat child molesters into jail for the rest of their lives and to help law enforcement with the tools they need to get the job done."

5. He impeached Bill Clinton for acts committed

with a consenting adult. And now lobbies a judge in order to spring his partisan buddy for far greater offences. Who says justice isn't blind?
