Dennis Hastert officially resigned from US House

Reported by Chrish - November 27, 2007 -

FOXNews.com is carrying an AP report that former House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL) resigned his seat effective 10:59pm CST tonight 11/26/07. This news comes on the same day that Senator Trent Lott announced his resignation, to be effective before year's end.

Speculation has it that the men need to resign before 1/1/08 in order to avoid new Congressional rules that call for a two-year wait before they can lobby their former colleagues, an increase from the current one-year waiting period. Others are devilishly speculating that the resignations have more to do with a rumored list to be released by Hustler publisher Larry Flynt. We shall see.
