Hillary Names Impeached Judge as Co-Chair

Hillary Names Impeached Judge as Co-Chair

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton has appointed two national co-chairs for her presidential campaign -- including a former U.S. District Court judge who was impeached.

U.S. Reps. Debbie Wasserman Schultz and Alcee Hastings, both Florida Democrats, will be two of several co-chairs who will help direct Clinton's effort to win the White House in 2008.

"We need a leader with a clear vision and sound judgment, who can work with a Democratic Congress to renew the promise of America. Hillary is that leader," Wasserman Schultz said in a statement.

Hastings said a second Clinton in the White House would make the country "a much better place for the African-American community, Floridians and all Americans."

Hastings was U.S. District Court judge for the Southern District of Florida from 1979 to 1989, until he was impeached and removed from office for corruption and perjury. He was only the sixth federal judge to be impeached and removed from office in American history. He ran successfully for the U.S. House in 1992.

I guess if you put "impeached" on your resume you can get a job with Hillary. Aren't you supposed to pick the best people to run the country - not the worst people? Maybe the only people she knows are people I would put on the "worst" list.

Living in Florida, I remember the Hasting's affair. The man is a crook, no other word for it, but then, look at the clintonistas. They are surrounded by thieves, dealers,murderers and just generally criminal types. No surprise!
Good morning, G*D bles and Maranatha!

This guy set the standard by which all corrupt deniers would be judged by.

Hastings was a criminal that got re-elected. Always love to see the left talk about the 'culture of corruption' as they circle the wagons around Will Jefferson.

Heck...Hillary sleeps (at least in theory) with someone that was impeached.

Good Monday to all.
