Speaker Gingrich condemned Pelosi for considering impeached former Judge and now Congressman Alcee Hastings on last night’s Hannity & Colmes. Liberal co-host Alan Colmes defended Hastings because he was never convicted in a criminal court.

Let’s use Alan’s “argument” (and I use that term very loosely) in action with a conservative. Although Mark Foley resigned, he has yet to be convicted. What if, God forbid, he was re-elected at one point and he was appointed as chairman of the Missing and Exploited Children committee? Would Alan be okay with that? I mean, he just resigned over allegations, he was never convicted. I imagine Alan would have no problem with it, only if Foley had a (D) by his name.
