Finally, some good news. But is the Supreme Court confused? Judges should not be corrupt, but politicians can?
Chief Justice John Roberts
We think the Supreme Court might be confused.They’re for Citizens United, but against judges pursuing personal campaign contributions?There’s a strange inconsistency here.
The US Supreme Court ruled, in a 5-4 vote, that states can prevent judicial election candidates from soliciting campaign contributions.
Chief Justice John Roberts wrote in his majority opinion: “The State may conclude that judges, charged with exercising strict neutrality and independence, cannot supplicate campaign donors without diminishing public confidence in judicial integrity.”
Thanks Chief Justice.Now can you apply that same thought process to our congressional leaders and lawmakers?
