Hastert Indicted, Fuller Resigns

Hastert Indicted, Fuller Resigns
Dennis Hastert's indictment and Federal Judge Mark "Wife-Beater" Fuller's resignation

Those shocked about the indictment of former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) wouldn't be so surprised had they been long time readers of The BRAD BLOG. As to the resignation of "wife-beating" U.S. District Court Judge Mark Fuller (R-AL), well, no surprise there either. Only question is whether he'll face any real accountability or continue living off the federal dole for the rest of his life, even after the 11th U.S. Circuit's Court's Judicial Conference has found "grounds for impeachment".

Commenting on former House Speaker Dennis Hastert's indictment for illegal banking and lying to investigators, blogger and Sputnik Radio contributor Brad Friedman noted that he and other independent journalists have been covering Hastert's illegal activities since the mid-2000s, and that he does not find the new allegations at all surprising. - Sputnik International
Dennis Hastert's Indictment is Icing on Cake of Thoroughly Corrupt Career
Special coverage of both breaking news stories on today's BradCast — a show that we were never supposed to do, since we were supposed to be off and traveling today! Just had to come back early for these. You're welcome!

Tune in for exclusive audio about alleged "blackmail", "bribery" and "immoral acts" by Hastert from the sworn 2009 testimony of FBI translator-turned-whistleblower Sibel Edmonds. And the remaining questions about whether the disgraced Judge Fuller is actually going to make out like a bandit despite his announced resignation.
