Hiding Out With Hastert

Shortly after condemning the FBI’s warranted search of William Jefferson’s office, Republican House Speaker Hastert was seen plodding down the streets of D.C. toward his office muttering, “Sanctuary! Sanctuary!”

Turns out, we now learn, Hastert’s under investigation for putting the clamps down on a Native American tribe’s casino bid shortly after receiving 26 Big Ones from a fundraiser held by Jack Abramoff (who was representing competing tribes opposed to the new proposed casino).

This also explains Hastert’s recent support for “English only” legislation — apparently he believes, under that bill, no one can legally utter quid pro quo.
