Elections. Have. Consequences.

Here, meet one.

All this talk about rules. When the deal goes down, we make ’em up as we go along.

Rep. Alcee Hastings was the sixth federal judge in American history to be impeached from office (bribery and perjury). The voters of FL-23 may have elected him afterward, but it was the Democratic party leadership that let him join the Rules Committee. And it’s the American electorate who gets to decide whether he can stay the Chair of its Legislative/Budget Process sub-committee.

So. Your call.
