Dem Who Wrote Unfair Impeachment Rules Has Girlfriend Working On Staff, In Violation Of House Rules

Excerpt:

One of the cocky Democrats responsible for writing the party’s widely-criticized, “unfair” impeachment rules that were voted on this week is reportedly a habitual rule breaker who’s been caught employing his own girlfriend in his congressional office.

That Democrat is House Rules Committee vice-chair Alcee Hastings of Florida, who this week joined his fellow equally cocky Democrats in stonewalling efforts by Republicans to install just a modicum of fairness in their otherwise unfair and unjust impeachment rules.

*snip*

According to an investigation by The Palm Beach Post, this top-ranking Democrat rule-maker has himself been violating House rules by allegedly maintaining a relationship and even cohabitating with one of his staffers.

“Hastings, 83, has employed a disbarred lawyer, Patricia Williams, on his congressional staff since at least 2000. She has been paid nearly $3 million in taxpayer-funded salary since that time,” the outlet reported Thursday.

“Property records show Williams and Hastings bought a $700,000 house together near Boynton Beach in 2017.”

When questioned about this incredible purchase, Hastings seemed to dismiss the Post’s concerns about potential ethics violations.

“However it looks, it’s been looking like that for 25 years,” he reportedly said.

It’s not clear whether there’s ever before in American history been a case of a congressman and his staffer purchasing a home together.

What’s known is that last year the then-GOP-led House-passed “new rules barring members of Congress from having a sexual relationship with a member of his or her staff” and decreed that anyone who violated the new rules could face potential expulsion.

He's black and a democrap.

It's all A-OK for him because of those things.

Nothing to see here. Move along.




He too will soon face the same equalizer as Cummings just has.

So ex Rep Katie Hill was right, but as usual she was also very wrong. The shoe is on the other foot when it comes to this nonsense, however it was not a white man conspiracy from those evil republican's. No instead like usual if it is accused by a Democrat of the Republican's then in reality it is the Democrats doing it. If she had the courage to call this crap out maybe, something would be fixed.

Number 4 of Alinsky's Rules For Radicals: "Make the enemy live up to its own book of rules."

The Left shrieks especially loudly when we do this to them. Hastings needs to be expelled, but his get out of jail free card is that doing so will be "revenge for holding Trump accountable." I think the whole impeachment farce is to try and shield the Leftist Dems from any fallout from Barr's investigations.

Yes, he is.

Quote

But as horrific as this sounds, it’s not the worst of the congressman’s antics. Prior to joining Congress in 2013, he worked for ten years as a district judge – up until he was impeached from office in 1989 for having accepted a $150,000 bribe.

Here’s the kicker: The attorney who represented him during the impeachment hearings was Williams, i.e., his current alleged girlfriend.

“Before she was disbarred for misusing client funds, Williams represented Hastings in the 1980s when Hastings was impeached and removed from his position as a U.S. District Court judge,” the Post confirmed. “After he won a seat in the House in 1992, he hired Williams, who is listed by LegiStorm as his deputy district director.”


Doubt some_one will comment on this, as usual.

it's all rather seedy and unseemly on the surface. Dig deeper and it'll get even ickier... :coolshades:
