Longtime Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings (D), the dean of the Florida congressional delegation, died Tuesday after a battle with pancreatic cancer, two leadership sources confirmed. He was 84.
Hastings started his career as a civil rights attorney and was nominated by former President Carter in 1979 as a federal judge in Florida. Nearly a decade later, he was impeached by the House for bribery and perjury, and convicted by the Senate, making him only the sixth federal judge in U.S. history to be ousted from office by the Senate. Hastings later made an unlikely political comeback in 1992, winning a seat in the same House of Representatives that impeached him years earlier.

Another made for TV funeral for a Rat...... STAY TUNED for the tear jerking eulogy
Says a lot when the House tries to reject Marjorie Greene or the Republican who won by six votes but accepted a judge who was impeached and removed for bribery.
“Nearly a decade later, he was impeached by the House for bribery and perjury, and convicted by the Senate, making him only the sixth federal judge in U.S. history to be ousted from office by the Senate.”
A crook. That’s all I’ll say
An impeached judge who then got elected to Congress. Disgraceful the way the left idolizes abhorrent behavior.
Today is #TransDayOfVisibility and we celebrate the many achievements & contributions of the transgender community. We must honor the bravery of the entire trans community, and continue to uplift and fight for their rights because #TransRightsAreHumanRights !— Alcee L. Hastings (@RepHastingsFL) March 31, 2021
Maybe they will flip this seat as it covers part of Palm Beach and areas of broward county. Time for Trump to work his magic in flipping this seat.
Imagine that, so corrupt that he was impeached as a Federal Judge but not corrupt enough for the Democrats to elect him to congress for quite a few years....
It’s like hiring someone who robs banks to be a bank auditor....
I know a couple people who have died of pancreatic cancer lately. It used to be rare. It doesn’t seem rare anymore.
Hastings was a piece of work—a blatant criminal and con artist—who played the race card every chance he got.
I don’t think he actually hated whitey (like so many blacks in Congress)—he just loved conning them!
Track, wall....see ya!!
He is standing before the same bar that Hillary and company will one day stand. There is no getting away with it in the next life (or, as the case may be - the eternal death).
Dem talking point: “Let’s honor the legacy of civil rights pioneer Alcee Hastings by passing HR 1.”
Fortunately he left his Race Card behind for other Democrats to pick up and use.
Hope he truly repented of his sins and accepted Christ as his Redeemer. The Bible does tell of God rejecting shameless sinners, though.
That’s the truth of it.
He was a racial arsonist from what I remember about the dummy.
