Hastings Out

Good riddance to that. Avoiding what would have a been almost daily embarrassments coming out of the House Intelligence Committee with a Rep. Alcee Hastings as chairman, Speaker to be Nancy Pelosi told him that chairmanship would not be going to him. Hastings was upset and said so in a statement.

We're told negotiations about who will fill that slot are ongoing, and have been for several days. And that Hastings knew this was coming.

Look for Rep. Silvestre Reyes of Texas to get strong consideration. In fact, Pelosi may have already offered him the chairmanship before Hastings got the word that his rear would not be filling that seat.
