Champion of Adam Walsh Act is in Trouble

Former U.S. Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert is in trouble. He’s been charged with evading financial reporting requirements, for allegedly withdrawing $1.7 million from several banks over the past four years.

He apparently agreed to pay a former student-athlete, from Hastert’s days as a teacher and coach in Yorkville, Illinois, $3.5 million to hide past “sexual misconduct” on Hastert’s part. Hastert is also charged with lying to Federal investigators, in what is becoming an increasingly sordid tale. 

Hastert is not being charged with any sexual misconduct, but when he was in Congress, he championed sex offender registry laws, including the Adam Walsh Act. Wouldn’t it be fitting if some day, someone who supported such a horrible law ended up being subject to its abuses of the U.S. Constitution?
