Isn’t he the Florida judge that was impeached and then won a seat in Congress ? Kind of like Marion Barry .

Yes. He’s black, he’s a Democrat, and his district is filled with idiots and criminals so he can do whatever he wants.

“The 2014 payment to settle the case involving Hastings was not apparently included in a breakdown of payouts to settle discrimination complaints against House lawmakers from the past five years released last month by the Office of Compliance, which approves the payouts. That total included only one payment to resolve a sexual harassment claim — $84,000 paid to settle a complaint against Texas Rep. Blake Farenthold.”

ahem

Oh yes, the same former Federal Judge impeached, convicted, kicked off the Federal Bench, and almost immediately elected as a Democrat to the House of Representatives.

Convictions enhance Democrats’ resumes.

Kicked off the Bench for accepting Bribes as a Judge. Upstanding g citizen. It was only a matter if time when his hand would be in the cookie jar again.

"released" to whom? Have we seen such a list?

The reputation of that former jailbird was certainly worth $220 K of taxpayers’ money. He should be in jail now.

“At the time, Hastings was the chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe,...”

How on earth does an ignorant ape (excuse me, foreign policy “expert”) like “Alcee” Hastings get appointed to chairman of the Commission on Security and Cooperation in Europe ?

Who would appoint a baboon like Hastings to anything... hey, wait a minute

All payouts should come from their pension funds.

Kinda makes you wonder how American EVER self-governed back when all of our CongressCritters were PART TIME and had other meaningful employment of their own!

(Our first Congress in 1789? 50-cents per diem if they had to travel. No salary.)

Maybe we should try that again?

I hate them all. Seriously. OK, 99.99% of them!

Tells me all I need to know about the scum who would elect this POS to congress. I’m just guessing, but his constituents probably have an average IQ of 50.
