Sexual Misconduct

Hastert is alleged to have withdrawn more than $1.5 million dollars in several installments from bank accounts to make payments to an "Individual A" to cover-up sexual abuse that reportedly took place when Hastert was a teacher and wrestling coach at Yorkville High School. Since Hastert was charged, other reports of sexual abuse by Hastert have surfaced.  (Photo by David Banks/Getty Images)
