Surprised I haven’t seen this yet on Gawker’s main page yet. So yeah I’m actually somewhat surprised. Apparently he lied to investigators as to why he was withdrawing so much cash. Apparently he was paying someone he know back from his high school teaching days to keep quiet about something he did. I’m trying to think of what would be so bad that even after you’ve resigned from politics that you’d want to keep it quiet. All I’m coming up with is sex with a minor. That seems like something you’d never want to come out.

Looks like I was right, it seems to be sexual abuse.
