(C-SPAN 05.28.2014) Dennis Hastert appeared on C-SPAN's Washington Journal one morning to talk about the midterm elections when he received a very strange call from Yorkville, IL, where he was a high school teacher and coach. The caller, going by the name of Bruce, asks if Hastert remembers him and then laughs, abruptly ending the call. The former speaker was recently indicted on charges that "he lied to the FBI and tried to mask cash transactions made from various banks."
