Florida Rep. Alcee Hastings dies at 84
By Scott Wong - 04/06/21 09:51 AM EDT


Longtime Democratic Rep. Alcee Hastings (D), the dean of the Florida congressional delegation, died Tuesday after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer in 2019, 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. He would represent South Florida's 20th District in Congress for 15 terms, making him the longest serving member of Congress in the Sunshine State’s delegation.

excerpt:
Quote
Hastings’s death creates yet another vacancy in a deep-blue seat at a time Democrats can least afford it. Their razor-thin majority will shrink to 218-212 once Rep.-elect Julia Letlow (R-La.) is sworn in next week. That will mean Democrats can only afford two defections on any vote.

No, God will judge him by his faith.

Sounds like he was just one more self serving CROOK!  Good riddance!

This scumbag was one of the members of Congress that pushed himself on a female staffer, and she sued and won near quarter of a million that THE TAXPAYER HAD TO PAY, not the scumbag.  For those of you that don't know, the Congress protect their own by protecting the scumbags within Congress.  The American TAXPAYER have paid many millions because of the criminal, corrupt behavior of the dirt bags in Congress.  The rest of the world would get terminated, but not these scum!!!

TERM LIMITS is the single greatest thing this country needs.
