Hastert admits molesting boys

It's hard to believe that the longest-serving Republican Speaker of the House in history being a child molester isn't a bigger story, but then again this is an election year.

Former House Speaker Dennis Hastert - who helped build the GOP's infamous culture of corruption - has finally admitted that he sexually abused boys while he was a high school wrestling coach.

One of Hastert's victims testified that the future congressman rubbed his penis at a wrestling camp.

Despite all this, sentencing guidelines say Hastert may face at most 6 months in jail. People serve years in prison for possession of marijuana, but Hastert probably won't get more than 6 months for something far worse.
