Impeachment!

An unusual event in Congress:

The Senate is beginning the final stage of the impeachment trial of a Louisiana judge accused of corruption. The rare trial in the chamber could make G. Thomas Porteous just the eighth federal judge to be removed from the bench. The House voted unanimously in March to bring four articles of impeachment against him. A two-thirds Senate vote is needed to convict.

And what do impeached federal judges do after they are removed?

Why, they run for Congress, of course.
