Alleged blackmail paying pedophile. The thing is, yes he looks guilty. But there is a statute of limitations for a reason on the base charge. The reason for the cash limit law is to catch people evading taxes and participating in illegal activity such as drug sales. Dennis was not using the cash illegally. The blackmailer should be charged with the crime of blackmail. I don’t care if he was the victim years ago as a reason to not charge him. You don’t get to be a vigilante. He could have sought justice during the time allowed by law rather than resort to a criminal act to punish Hastert himself.
It is not that I think Hastert should not be charged with structuring. He knew it was illegal. it is just that I think the law is wrong and should be repealed. It is a nightmare for banks. If they fail to report they face big fines. It is too much of a burden to place on mere tellers.
See, forced to say Alleged! Not acceptable.
