New Hampshire News Conference: Conservative blogger Andy Martin seeks Hastert victim files (FOIA)
New Hampshire corruption fighter Andy Martin will hold a Manchester, NH news conference Sunday, June 7th to announce he has asked the U. S. Department of Justice to release the complete file on former Speaker Dennis Hastert’s victims. “I have previously disclosed the hypersexualized environment in the Speaker’s Office in Washington,” Andy says. “Representatives Mark Kirk (now a Senator) and Mark Foley were ‘regulars’ with Speaker Hastert. But what Hastert did as an adult, with other adults, is his business and their business. I completely respect the right to privacy of consenting adults, particularly since Hastert is no longer in office. What Hastert did as a school teacher and coach, is our business, the people’s business. The Department of Justice should release the full file on Hastert’s victims and do so immediately. I have filed a Freedom of Information Act request seeking full disclosure.”

(Manchester, NH) (June 7, 2015) Corruption-fighter Andy Martin, who first exposed the homosexuality aspect of the accusations against Dennis Hastert and has been driving reporting on the scandal since then, will hold a Manchester, New Hampshire news conference today, Sunday, June 7th to announce he has filed a Freedom of Information Act (“FOIA”) request with the U.S. Department of Justice asking that all of the files concerning former Speaker Dennis Hastert’s victims be released.
“We now know of apparently three victims: (1) individual A; (2) Steve Reinboldt (see link below); (3) the person whose family reported the abuse to Representative Mel Watt. Experience tells us there may be many more victims. Given Dennis Hastert’s important role in the U. S. Congress the public has a right to know what the Department of Justice knows about Hastert’s history as a predator. Right now all we have is endless speculation.
“I have submitted my FOIA request to both the U. S. Attorney and Executive Office of U. S. Attorneys. A copy of my letter, without the heading, follows:”

Re: U.S. v. Hastert, 1:15-cr-00315-1
Dear FOIA Staff:
I would like to formally lodge a FOIA request for any and all information concerning the identity of “Individual A” in the above case, as well as the identities of any other individuals, in Illinois prior to 1990, excluding the Defendant, who are part of the investigation or file in the above case.
Since Individual A is apparently not being prosecuted, and there is no ongoing investigation about him or her, I believe that FOIA mandates release of any identifying information about Individual A as well as other individuals who were identified and became part of the file concerning the Defendant’s actions in Illinois prior to 1990.
Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions.
