New lawsuit accuses imprisoned former speaker of sex assault

CHICAGO (AP) — An Illinois man accuses Dennis Hastert in a new lawsuit of sexually assaulting him when he was a fourth-grader, at least the fifth such allegation against the former House speaker who will soon be released from prison in a hush-money case. The accuser says Hastert sexually abused him in a bathroom stall in the 1970s in Yorkville, Illinois, where Hastert was a teacher and wrestling coach. Previous accusers had been in high school.
