    Arpaio is probably moving to the 8th district as we speak.

    That's a deep red district. The GOP could run a child molester there and still win.

    With them consoling him, makes me think it could be.
    I hope not.

    In the House I believe only a special election can fill the seat.

    "Franks also caused an uproar in 2013 when he claimed during an abortion debate that the “incidence of rape resulting in pregnancy are very low,” defending his bill’s lack of an exception for rape and incest victims."



    Let's deal with the so very overused idea of "cases of rape or incest."
    The concept that there are "cases of rape or incest" is a chimera.
    They really don't exist.....well, the fact is that 98.5% of abortion don't involve either abhorrent event.

    The cases in which abortion is for rape, 1%; and .5% incest.

    Statistics vary, particularly with incest, which is very under reported:

    Rape, pregnancy, statistics and the ignorance of some politicians

    What rumors of inappropriate behavior? The way the post is written it seems that Franks anti abortion stance is the problem.

    Perhaps we shouldn't fill any vacancies and just close Congress entirely.

    I'm sure that President Trump and the newly invigorated U.S. Supreme court would deal with anything that might arise.
