    Hm, without ever mentioning the words "sex scandal involving a minor", that's what the article still seems to imply.

    How many people would pay over three million to cover up something that wasn't illegal?

    For three and a half million, there must be pictures.

    Isn't Hastert the one who covered up former Representative Mark Foley's entanglement with young male House pages?

    Yes.

    And now -- based on what must be termed the ringing -- and journalistically, one has to believe, proper -- innuendo in the Post piece in the OP et al., it can only be termed ironic that this cover-up seems to be based on scandal involving Hastert and teenage males during his coaching tenure at the high school.

    OK so the grand jury knew exactly what he was trying to cover up? But they didn't indict him for that?
    So can we infer that it wasn't illegal, just terribly embarrassing? Or that the statute of limitations has long passed? Or that there was no evidence to prove he did anything (beyond the fact that he was paying someone to cover it up)?

    We're thinking statute of limitations here.

    For example, Simonides of Ceos agreed to compose a victory ode for Anaxilas, tyrant of Rhegium, for his victory in the mule-drawn-chariot race at the Olympian games only after Anaxilas agreed to pay Simonides more than he had originally offered; the poet could retaliate with ridicule if his terms were not met.

    From here: http://www.britannica.com/EBchecked/topic/190080/epinicion

    What's valor in sports? Old old question and something kids playing as they grow face constantly. It's a shame that they get dragged into politics, greed and into the agenda's of messed up egotists.

    The Greek analogy may be to the point.

    Just to note that it would not be any less wrong if the misconduct had occurred with an underage female.
