By Nick Gale, WLS-AM 890 News

(CHICAGO) Disgraced former House Speaker Dennis Hastert is due to report to prison today.

Hastert will serve out his 15-month sentence in a federal prison in southeastern Minnesota. The 74-year-old will serve time for breaking banking laws in a hush money case that revealed he sexually abused at least four boys decades ago when he was a wrestling coach at Yorkville High School.

On the inside, the nation’s longest-serving GOP speaker will be known to prison guards as Inmate No. 47991-424.
