CHICAGO (AP) – Another Illinois poltician is accused of corruption.

A federal grand jury indictment says former U.S. House Speaker Dennis Hastert agreed to pay $3.5 million in hush money to keep a person from Yorkville silent about “prior misconduct.”

Hastert was a high school teacher and coach from 1965 to 1981 in Yorkville. The indictment does not go into detail about the alleged prior misconduct.
