In a further sign that the left is aware that the fate of Obamacare is on thin ice and the Supreme Court may say that it is unconstitutional , a group of law professors have joined the throngs of their more rabid pals to try to get Justices Scalia and Thomas off the case by magnifying silly charges of conflicts and demanding Congressional action to obtain their recusal.Woven into this conspiratorial heavy breathing is the latest object of the left’s Orwellian two minute hate–the Koch brothers.
No word of the travel of Justice Ginsburg to speeches in which she addresses her former employer the ACLU, praises foreign law and argues we should consider it in our decision-making. Nor of the other out of court activities of the Justices whose views they share.
A group of more than a hundred law professors from around the country has asked Congress to extend an ethical code of conduct to the Supreme Court for the first time and clarify when individual justices should step away from specific legal cases. The group’s appeal on Wednesday in a letter to the House and Senate Judiciary Committees comes after recent controversies involving travel and appearances at political events by several Supreme Court justices, including Clarence Thomas and Antonin Scalia. Rep. Chris Murphy (D-Conn.) said he plans to introduce legislation that addresses the issue.
