Full Title: Report: Dem Lawmaker Who Wrote Unfair Impeachment Rules Used $200K Taxpayer Dollars to Settle Sexual Harassment Case.
Mr. Hastings has been accused of sexual harassment, used tax dollars to settle, broke House rules by hiring his girlfriend as a staffer and was once impeached for accepting a $150K bribe .and hes in charge of writing rules.
Well, in not-so-surprising news, the Democrat lawmaker who created the unfair impeachment rules is a rule breaker himself and a criminal.
The House Rules Committee vice-chair is Alcee Hastings from Florida, and he has a nasty habit of regularly breaking the rules.
Hastings has been caught employing his own girlfriend in his congressional office, which is a direct violation of House rules.
The Palm Beach Post conducted an investigation into Hastings and discovered that the top-ranking Democrat rule-maker has been violating House rules by maintaining a relationship and even cohabitating with one of his staffers.
Hastings, 83, has employed a disbarred lawyer, Patricia Williams, on his congressional staff since at least 2000. She has been paid nearly $3 million in taxpayer-funded salary since that time, the outlet reported Thursday.
Property records show Williams and Hastings bought a $700,000 house together near Boynton Beach in 2017.
When questioned about this incredible purchase, Hastings seemed to dismiss the Posts concerns about potential ethics violations.
However it looks, its been looking like that for 25 years, he reportedly said.
Its not clear whether theres ever before in American history been a case of a congressman and his staffer purchasing a home together.
Whats known is that last year the then-GOP-led House-passed new rules barring members of Congress from having a sexual relationship with a member of his or her staff and decreed that anyone who violated the new rules could face potential expulsion.

He should at least be forced to recuse from peach mint hearings...
Patricia Graham Williams was with him when he was impeached so she was with him longer than 2000.
This may get whacked. We can’t post getty images but i don’t see where we can’t link to ‘em
Getty wants 500 bucks for this image...too funny ! what a racket
My congressman!!! Woo! Hoo! My district is TOPS in corruption!!! (in Broward County.)
The RNC should be exposing the MeToo slush fund recipients
We have a right to know who used public funds to cover sex
addiction, infidelity and just plain whoremongering
I be most were Dems.
Remember how much these hypocrites made of Stormy?
But at least Trump used his own money not ours, that is a big difference.
Dem who wrote unfair impeachment rules has girlfriend working on staff, in violation of House rules
“...could face potential expulsion...”
They have a guy writing rules who was impeached as a federal judge and removed. Probably should be in prison. I think he almost was but got an OJ jury.
But they won't because they are just
as guilty as the DemonRATS. The GOP congress has
probably been blackmailed for years by the Dems.
You also have, to say the least, a unique Supervisor of Elections Office.
Impeached Federal Judges should be barred from Federal offices.
OMG Florida voters are stupid.
That’s why our state is often referred to as Floriduh!
