Rep. Alcee Hastings (Overall POS)

"[Florida] Governor Scott's new drug testing law is not only an affront to families in need and detrimental to our nation's ongoing economic recovery, it is downright unconstitutional...If Governor Scott wants to drug test recipients of TANF benefits, where does he draw the line?  Are families receiving Medicaid, state emergency relief, or educational grants and loans next?"

- TANF is the Temporary Assistance for Needy Families program, and the law in question requires the Florida Department of Children and Family Services to conduct drug tests on adults who apply for TANF.

How awful.  I can't believe Florida is going to require people receiving this welfare to be drug-free...That is so Draconian.  It has to be unconstitutional.

Ouch!  I almost gave myself a labial strain trying to act like a Liberal...And no, I'm not a woman.

If it was up to me, these people would have to pass much more difficult requirements than being drug-free.  I'm sure this makes me a Spartan, however.

Forget the druggies, I want to make sure you know about Rep. Hastings:  "1988, the Democratic-controlled U.S. House of Representatives took up the case, and Hastings was impeached for bribery and perjury by a vote of 413-3. He was then convicted in 1989 by the United States Senate, becoming the sixth federal judge in the history of the United States to be removed from office by the Senate." - Wikipedia

He was such a turd he got booted out of the federal courts, but he's good enough to have a spot as a Democrat in Congress...That tells you a little bit about the values of Democrats.  And it tells you even more about the Florida district voters who put him in Congress after getting impeached and tossed on his rear.

    Hastings district is a hugely Gerrymandered one covering a LOT of Everglades-type nothing in order to scoop out black neighborhoods from Fort Pierce to Ft Lauderdale. And yes, he is a MAJOR sleeze-bag! But when you carve districts out in such a way, it allows these douches to get elected and stay in power!
