(Waukegan, IL) — Senator Mark Kirk is giving away the money he received from former House Speaker Dennis Hastert to charity. Officials say Kirk decided to donate the ten-thousand he received during his 2010 Senate campaign to the Family First Center of Lake County. The move comes as Hastert is due in federal court next week following allegations he tried to hide three-and-a-half-million dollars in bank withdraws used for hush money. The payouts allegedly went to a former male student with whom he had a sexual relationship 30-years ago.
