CHICAGO, IL - JUNE 09:  Former Republican Speaker of the House Dennis Hastert fights his way through the press as he arrives for his arraignment at the Dirksen Federal Courthouse on June 9, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois. Hastert was in court to answer charges that he knowingly lied to the FBI and intentionally evaded federal reporting requirements involving bank transactions. Hastert is alleged to have withdrawn more than $1.5 million dollars in several installments from bank accounts to make payments to an "Individual A" to cover-up sexual abuse that reportedly took place when Hastert was a teacher and wrestling coach at Yorkville High School. Since Hastert was charged, other reports of sexual abuse by Hastert have surfaced.  (Photo by Scott Olson/Getty Images)
