Senate Votes To Convict Federal Judge

The United States Senate voted today to convict and remove federal judge Thomas Porteous of Louisiana.  Porteous was accused of accepting money and gifts from attorneys and bail bondsmen, among other allegations.  Incredibly, Porteous, a Clinton appointee, was only the eighth federal judge to be removed by the Senate in U.S. history.
White collar crime hits high and low, doesn't it?
