Satan's Bunny Slippers: Not at all surprising. After all, they're still trying to impeach Obama.Being that stupid has to hurt. It just has to.
James!: BitwiseShift: (the most common word for Tea in the world)Wait, so if someone offers you Chai Tea they're really offering you Tea Tea?
SeesWhatYouDidThere: FTFA "KrisAnne Hall says she and a group of other conservatives are helping draft legislation that would allow senators in the state to face recall elections"Now correct me if I'm wrong, but Rubio is a US Senator. Yes, he represents Florida, but he is part of the US government. So how does legislation in Florida affect federal election law? I could understand it for state Representatives and Senators, but not federal.
red5ish: If they can get the legislation passed and are able to get enough support to have Rubio recalled then that is a perfectly legitimate action. Unlike 37 attempts to repeal ACA, which is pure window dressing.Now, if the people of Texas would start the same process and recall Ted Cruz I would call that progress.

Rwa2play: Diogenes: Rwa2play: clambam: Hispanic votes? We don't need no Hispanic votes!The repubs could actually lose Florida if they decide to thoroughly dick over the state's Cubans. But, whatever. Pray continue with your extended political suicide.It's not just the Cubans, it's the growing non-Cuban Hispanics that are making Florida home. They were a big reason why Obama won Florida last year; pissing them off might not be wise at all for Florida GOPers.Exactly. Florida's Cuban community isn't always on the same page as Latinos from other countries. And the Cuban demographic is no longer dominant here.Worse, the majority of them are either legal immigrants or born here but identify as Hispanic. Again, as much as the Florida GOP would love to enact some voting restrictions, it would be very unwise to start alienating the Hispanics in the next few years. Florida might stay solid blue for a generation or two if Florida Republicans continue with the derp.
Witty_Retort: I had the idea of starting a Super PAC with the stated goal of getting the moast conservative guy elected. Could easily raise money through facebook and fw:FW:fw: emails. Then spend money on hookers consultants and running attack ads against all the "sane" conservatives to primary them out and have the most bat-guano insane guy on the R side of the ballot.
martin55: I'm curious whether ex post facto would apply. If the law didn't permit recalls before he got elected, could he be recalled under a law implemented before the next six-year term for that seat?
