  •  The Constitution is perfectly, vaguely clear about (6+ / 0-)

    what constitutes an eligible candidate:

    Article I

    Section II
    No person shall be a Representative who shall not have attained to the age of twenty five years, and been seven years a citizen of the United States, and who shall not, when elected, be an inhabitant of that state in which he shall be chosen.

    25 years old, ok
    Been a US Citizen at least 7 years, ok
    Live in the State of the District you are running for, ok

    Nothing there about behavior. I'm pretty sure we can't do anything about that, without amending the Constitution, which is in modern America about as likely as winning the Lottery, twice, in one day.
