Impeachment Chic

What is it about Hitlary Clinton and impeached Federal officeholders?

Apparently, one of her Florida campaign chairmen is Congressman Alcee Hastings.

Like her husband, the Great Prevaricator, Hastings has the distinction of being one of the few Federal officials (a judge) ever impeached.

However, unlike the Great Prevaricator, he was convicted and removed from office. Probably because it occurred before the Democrats surrendered everything in pursuit of political power (witness the fact that he has been elected and reelected as a Democrat), and the GOP puts its collective spine, or manhood, in a blind trust.

H/T to X Carmudgeon.

UPDATE: Even a poster at Democrat[ic] Central can figure this one out.

UPDATE II: Vivian J. Paige likewise agrees.
