Alcee Hastings, specifically.

He's dead of pancreatic cancer.  So what?

Let me remind you that as a sitting judge appointed by Jimmy Carter he was impeached and convicted, being removed from office for taking bribes, perjury and tampering with evidence.

In other words he tampered with cases before him in exchange for money, which, for those who are too stupid to parse this means he deliberately screwed litigants before him in his courtroom for his own personal profit.

For this he was justly removed by the US Senate.

But that wasn't the end of him.  No, in South Florida, you see, you can be convicted of ****ing people over for money as a sitting judge and then run for Congress and win!  Which he did.  The Senate, after his impeachment, declined to take the second vote to bar him from public office in the future, believing it was unnecessary since you'd think screwing people for profit and getting caught was enough.

They were wrong; in 1992 he was elected to the US House and served 15 consecutive terms.

"Congressman Alcee Hastings was my friend," Democratic National Committee chairman Jaime Harrison tweeted. "I’m heartbroken to hear this news! He was passionate, emotional, a straight & no chaser type of Member. He loved his constituents & he took time to teach young staffers from the bumps in life he experienced."

Of course; Democrat values include taking bribes, screwing litigants for personal profit and then, even after being caught and convicted counting on the fact that voters will pull the lever for someone with the right party letter after their name even if the actual name on the ballot is "SATAN".

After all what better set of characteristics for a Congressperson than someone who has already demonstrated that they're perfectly happy to be bribed?  You could only do better if you added a few trips on Lolita Express to your resume.

I remember seeing a bit of the impeachment of Alcee Hastings on the TEEVEE. I wasn't aware that a second vote was required to keep the convicted party from running for office. In retrospect you might guess that the Democrat members knew that Hastings had a loyal and ready-made constituency that would vote for him and saw him as a loyal party member and team player. Republicans could be counted on to not ask for the second vote to keep Hastings from being able to hold office lest they were accused of being rayyycisss. The crook Marion Barry was re-elected mayor of Washington AC/DC by a constituency remarkably similar to Alcee Hastings'.
How long will it take Nancy Pelosi to arrange Hastings' laying in state in the Capitol rotunda? Such is the state of our sacred deeemocracyyyy.
Hastings ashes should be flushed down the nastiest toilet in Florida.

In DC, stealing from the voters, taxpayers hasn't been a crime since the start
of the Clinton era.

Alcee accidentally broke some confusing laws while collecting his own reparations.

The good old boys (and girls) took care of one of their own.

Good demonstration of what they think of us!

Pancreatic cancer? Drawn-out and painful? Knowing you're doomed and not just checking out peacefully in one's sleep with no notice?

For this arrogant turd, I'm surprisingly fine with that. Sorry, I lied about the "surprisingly" part.

Greenacr, I was sort of hoping Leaky Leahy would get all wee-wee'd up and just keel over up on the dais during Peach Mint 2.0 - that would have flipped the Senate on the spot, 'cause his Gov (Le Petomaine, I think) is some flavor of not-'Rat and would have been in charge of excreting a different parasite into his office.

That would have been pretty fun to watch, eh? But hope springs eternal; the old coot is still there (along with dozens of other old coots) and he's not getting any healthier day by day.

C'mon, Satan!

Je set the standard for what we have today. I suspect 75% of the people in the House are in the same pool. You only need look at the ones they want to get rid of to find the honest ones. We have a guy in the White House with a credible charge of Sexual assault against him and crickets. Credible evidence he had been and probably still is peddling influence. We have a literal ***** as VP and a money grubbing, lying bitch as speaker. The Republicans aren't much better.

Funny that getting laid, while out on the town is suddenly a crime, but encouraging your 6 year old son to cut his pecker off is admirable. Under any reasonable standard, we have been gaslighted. We even have major corporations endorsing election rigging, under the cover of some kind of nonsense social justice that black people are too stupid to have identification. As a black person, if they are too stupid and you night get punched. I get asked for an ID to put money into the credit union. But the people who claim to represent blacks contend they can't get an ID. Now we know how Hastings got elected.

I'm still trying to suss out whether DeSantis is an exception or just another one of Lucy's footballs.

DeSatan, spent over one hundred million, on a broke ass website, (still broke), hired telemarketers to answers phones, with zero knowledge, regarding the phone call origination/questions.

Yeah he's a ****ing politician, the other choice was a fart box smoker, crack head, with a knack for sleeping in his own ****, and puke.
