Democratic Congressman Hastings: "There Are No Rules Here ... We Make Them Up As We Go Along"
Alcee Hastings was impeached in 1988 for corruption as a Federal Judge. The impeachment vote was 413 to 3. Hastings then ran for Congress in 1992 in a very heavily Democratic district and won. It seems appropriate that he is on the House Rules Committee.
The Washington Examiner has some background on what transpired before Hastings' quote here.
