Hillary appoints impeached judge to campaign chair


Ahh, the famous Clinton family ethics issue has raised its head again. It seems Hillary has appointed Alcee Hastings as national campaign co-chair. So what you may ask and who the heck is Alcee Hastings?

Over at Red State California Yankee fills in the details about this ethically challenged individual:

In 1988, the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives considered the case, and impeached Hastings for bribery and perjury by a vote of 413-3. Hastings was then convicted in 1989 by the United States Senate, becoming only the sixth federal judge in the history of the United States to be removed from office by the Senate.

Alleged Hastings co-conspirator, William Borders, went to jail again for refusing to testify in the impeachment proceedings, but was later given a full pardon by Bill Clinton on his last day in office.

I thought it was only the Republicans who had a “Culture of Corruption”? This must be part of that Vast Right Wing Conspiracy . . .
