Denny Hastert's Creepy C-SPAN Call: 'Remember Me?'

Maybe it was a crank call, but then again, maybe not.

A C-SPAN viewer unearthed this clip of Denny Hastert on Washington Journal last year. It's pretty creepy after hearing about those federal indictments yesterday.

TPM:

Hastert appeared in November on C-SPAN's "Washington Journal," where he fielded a call from an Illinois resident identifying as "Bruce."

"Hello Denny," the caller said.

"Hey, how are you doing?" Hastert responded.

"Pretty good. Remember me from Yorkville?" the caller answered. The caller paused, then laughed and apparently hung up.

"I think he's gone. Let's go to Ohio," host Pedro Echevarria said, moving on with the segment.
