Dennis Hastert, Former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Indicted for Perjury to FBI and Bank Crimes: NOT IN TODAY's ST. AUGUSTINE RECORD PRINT EDITION
From very first words in the indictment, it looks like this case is rooted in payoffs to conceal Hastert's "misconduct" related to his being a high school wrestling coach. What could that be? The alleged scheme began in 2010, the same year that Penn State University/Sandusky pedophile scandal resulted in criminal charges.
$3.5 million for silence/compensation for "misconduct" is alleged to have begun in 2010.
I saw nothing on this indictment of the former Republican Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives in the print edition of today's St. Augustine Record.
The Morris Communications family's dull Republican Record also eschewed coverage of the conviction/sentencing of BERNARD KERIK, RUDOLPH GIULIANI's NYPD Chief, whom President GEORGE W. BUSH wanted as his Secretary of Homeland Security.
When President Obama was elected, the St. Augustine Record was the only newspaper in the world that left it off its front page.
The WRECKORD is biased in favor of Republicans and developers.
A stench in the nostrils of St. Augustine?
What do y'all reckon?
Update: Saturday, May 30, 2015: Buried in the back of the news section, tiny story, not mentioning he paid hush money to conceal sex with male high school student. Pitiful headline about how "finally" there's a scandal involving DENNIS HASTERT. Pitiful. Record run by Ronald Reagan's "Eleventh Commandment" -- "Don't criticize another Republican." Pitiful excuse for a newspaper.
Update: Monday, June 1, 2015: Record finally prints Q&A revealing allegations of high school student molestation at issue in Hastert case.
