Always assume the worst and you’ll never be disappointed

I suppose it was easy to see where this Dennis Hastert story was going, but actually watching it get there was still disturbing. I don’t know how Illinois law works but it’s entirely possible that we’re now past the statute of limitations to prosecute Hastert for any crime he may have committed back in the 1970s, and if that’s the case then whatever punishment he receives for these charges will have to count as “justice.” It feels wrong to say any more than that absent the details of the case, and those details should be between Dennis Hastert, the authorities, and the people whose lives Hastert affected.
