"Individual D" Hastert victim is brother of former IL GOP leader

A bombshell has already released from the sentencing hearing for former House Speaker Dennis Hastert (R-IL).

From the Daily Herald:
The younger brother of a political protégé of former House Speaker Dennis Hastert has identified himself as a victim of sexual abuse.

Scott Cross, known in prosecutors' court filings as "Individual D" has taken the stand at Hastert's sentencing in a federal hush money case.
Cross is a former wrestler at Yorkville High School and he was the man who revealed that Hastert would sit in a La-Z-Boy chair and watch boys shower.

Cross' older brother is Tom Cross of Oswego, which is near Yorkville. He's the former Republican leader in the Illinois House.
