Remember these two?
The one in the dark suit is former Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert. The other is former Florida Congressman Mark Foley. Mark Foley liked to dittle male house pages. He was particularly fond of using the Internet to discuss the length of their dicks and their masturbation technique.
Dennis Hastert was the guy who tried to protect Foley's dirty little secret. He didn't want to lose a Republican seat in the House. It didn't work, Hastert was disgraced, gave up the Speaker's job and eventually his congressional seat altogether.
Which brings us to today...
Bill Foster, a former scientist at the Fermi laboratory outside of Chicago and a Democrat just won the special election to replace Hastert. Foster beat Republican business man named Jim Oberweis.
Sure, nobody likes the current state of affairs and everyone is clamoring for change, but I would bet a nice chunk of change that the Republican cover-up of the Foley scandal and Hastert's participation in that cover up helped get Bill Foster elected.
Another victory for the party of change and hope and another defeat for the party of hate and hypocrisy.
Thanks Mark, appreciate the help. BTW. How'd that rehab go?
