Denny Hastert's No-Holds Barred Rise to Power

In her column in the New York Post [bugmenot], Cindy Adams says prosecutors are investigating Denny Hastert's ascent to Speaker:
Jack Abramoff's partner Mike Scanlon admitted to digging up former Congressman Robert Livingston's private life. Set to become speaker, Livingston then got sidelined for Tom DeLay's man Dennis Hastert. Prosecutors now checking if Abramoff and Scanlon took Livingston down at DeLay's behest.
And as former wrestling coach, Denny knows that, although takedowns are generally worth one point, this takedown scores three points because the opponent was brought down in a position of exposure.
