oh boy (sigh) ... A prayer the fix is not in.
Says it all. Will she? Is it time for another massive Tea Party rally in Washington D.C. about this very issue? How about right in front of the SCOTUS building?
Is anyone surprised by that?
She shouldn’t’ be on the Supreme Court period. Who were the fools that voted for her. They should go.
It’s my understanding that there is no mechanism to force a Supreme Court justice to recuse, short of public shaming and the threat of impeachment. Since I doubt Kagan cares about the former and knows the later will never happen. I expect her to laugh as she issues her “unbiased” decision.
If she were still Solicitor General, she would be the one making the oral arguments for the government in front of SCOTUS. Her successor is the one that will likely be doing so.
She was a huge cheerleader for this bill, sat in on meetings where details of the bill were being hashed out.
If that is not grounds for recusal, then no judge should have to recuse themselves from any case.
This is a clear case where she can not be unbiased. She must recuse or she will break the law. The statute is quite clear that she must step aside. She knew that when she got on the court. We can file judicial ethics violations in the federal judiciary and she could lose and be forever scarred .
This is something as outrageous as, as say, pervert Sandusky being sentenced to community service with Big Brothers.
I don’t know how the court work but wouldn’t the chief justice have something to say about this?
