Congressman Alcee Hastings is a former U.S. District judge that was impeached and convicted by the U.S. Senate for...
engaging in a "corrupt conspiracy" to extort a $150,000 bribe in a case before him, marking the first time a federal official has been impeached and removed from office for a crime he had been acquitted of by a jury.He is now being considered for head of the Intelligence Committee by Nancy Pelosi.
So, the corrupt Republicans are out and the corrupt Democrats are in.
It's the unspoken law of politics:
he may be a crook, but he's our crook.
