New Hastert Rule Goes Into Effect

A federal judge in Chicago on Tuesday ordered that Dennis Hastert never be left alone with anyone under 18 unless another adult is present who is aware of the former US House speaker's conviction in a hush-money case that revealed he had sexually abused several high school students. US District Judge Thomas M. Durkin didn't explain in his brief order why that and other new restrictions on the 75-year-old were called for now, three months into his two-year period of supervised release from prison. Others included barring Hastert from possessing pornography and using "any sex-related telephone numbers." He also must allow -- and pay for -- the installation of software that records all his computer activity, from browser history to email correspondence and internet chats.

He must've been active recently to require such omnipresent surveillance in his punishment.

The Podesta brothers don't want anyone else in their club with Denny.
