    AKA Alcee Lamar Hastings

    Born: 5-Sep-1936
    Birthplace: Altamonte Springs, FL


    Gender: Male
    Religion: Methodist
    Ethnicity: Black
    Sexual orientation: Straight
    Occupation: Politician

    Nationality: United States
    Executive summary: Congressman, Florida 23rd

    First African-American judge appointed to Florida (appointed by Jimmy Carter to the Southern District of Florida in 1979), Hastings was impeached and removed from office in 1989 -- two counts, perjury and conspiracy to obstruct justice, one of only twelve judges in American history to be afforded this indignity. The basis of the two charges was his lying about the fixing of cases in his court. However, even after impeachment he is the first African-American be elected to Congress from Florida since Reconstruction, representing Dade and Broward Counties, and several others. He is a member of the House Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence.

    This is old news though, isn't it? I know he was in Congress during the Clinton Impeachment, so he's been firmly implanted in his District for years.

    LOL, it just begs the question...how come the Reps couldn't put up someone that could beat an 'impeached judge, one of only 12 in U.S. history, who fixed cases, perjured and obstructed justice'??

    Since you are in law school, does this guy cease to be a lawyer, and transition to a shill? In my eyes he has foregone his oath. Your thoughts?

    This message implies that only democrats were the ones that were at the election and, therefore, elected him.

    Just like AMERICANS elected a moron as a president, AMERICANS elected an impeached judge to congress. It wasn't just 'democrats'.

    The district he represents is a vast majority Democrat congressional district.

    I agree it's too bad that Americans elected a moron like Clinton (twice!).

    I hope the Democrats select her for their nomination for President, that way they will lose again in 2008.

    It probably depends on the state bar rules. In CA (I think) that if you are convicted of a felony, there is a hearing and then your lic. is revoked (not sure for how long.)

    So, in CA, he would cease to be a lawyer (I'm guessing it would be the same for his state too.)

    I don't know for sure because I have not taken ethics and I am pretty sure it is covered in that class.
