Harman/Alcee Hastings brouhaha bubbling up

(The fact that the Dems are looking daily more likely to control the 110th House naturally has nothing to do with it!)
The LA Times has her push-back.
The Pelosi camp's talk about this being a routine rotation of personnel is debunked: the rotation rule doesn't apply to the chairman or ranking member.
And we're reminded that the 9/11 Commission
was harshly critical of congressional oversight of U.S. spy agencies, and faulted term limits in particular for forcing lawmakers to leave after they had developed expertise in the arcane world of espionage.
No doubt, when Harman gets the plausible deniability sorted out, we'll be hearing some more about Alcee Hastings' interesting past...
