"Sorry, Haters, God Is Not Finished With Me Yet"

Alcee Hastings: I’m An Innocent Victim of Politics

Should impeachment in and of itself prevent me from being chair of a committee in Congress?” asks Rep. Alcee Hastings, the man who, as a federal judge, was charged with conspiring to solicit bribes and then impeached and removed from office.

In a “Dear Colleague” letter sent last week to all Democratic members of the House, Hastings, now in line to run the House Intelligence Committee, answers his own question with a resounding No.


The Other Side; An 'Intelligent' Choice


Ah, the good ol' WaPO; they'll always be an excuser, appeaser--rewriters of libby history--apologizers for their side to the end!

The Other Shoe Drops;Pelosi Decides Against Hastings as Intel Chair


"Sorry, Haters, God Is Not Finished With Me Yet"

“I have been informed by the speaker-elect that I will not serve as the chairman of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence in the 110th Congress,” he said. “I am obviously disappointed with this decision.” Hastings won election to Congress in 1992, after having been impeached and removed from office as a federal judge. He concluded his statement by saying, “Sorry, haters, God is not finished with me yet.”


What a totally graceless, petulant, whining little man.

What a soul-cleasning,anxiety-relieving,blame-avoiding excersing thing it must be to blame ones mistakes,short-comings and violation of the law on ones skin color. Must be great. Where can I,a white man,go to do that? J'Mac.

You've got way too much class to do that, John. MLK was right--content of one's character always shows.

I know verity,I was just being sarcastic. Still,it is maddening to listen to someone like this play the racial self-pity trip.One hundred and forty one years after the end of the Civil War(I had a great-great grandfather in the Union Army) and we're still putting up with the likes of a guy like this. Too much. J"Mac.
