2007_10_18.hastert.jpgSo is Dennis Hastert resigning or what? This morning, it sounded like a done deal, but Hastert's press secretary Lulu Blacksmith just told us that there are "no changes from [his] August statement," when he said he wouldn't seek reelection but would finish out his term. Blacksmith declined to comment on why resignation rumors would surface today.
