TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- During the tumultuous presidential recount in 2000, John Roberts flew to Florida and volunteered advice to Gov. Jeb Bush, whose brother was trying to clinch the election.
Some Democrats are now saying the trip should disqualify Roberts from the Supreme Court.
Roberts, who was in private practice at the time, accepted Jeb Bush's invitation to come to Florida at his own expense to offer advice to the governor. He spent only about a half hour with Bush and never played a major role at a time when scores of attorneys swarmed into the state.
"He came down and met with the governor briefly and shared with him some of his thoughts on what he believed the governor's responsibilities were after a presidential election, a presidential election in dispute," Bush spokesman Jacob DiPietre said. "There were several experts, including professors, scholars, constitutional experts who came down to Florida at that time and Judge Roberts was one of them."

Oh boy, the hate will be flowing out of the nooks and crannies and flooding the media now, assisted by all the venomous moonbats who are terrified of this man. They think they've found a vulnerable spot and they'll probe it and poke it 24/7.
This charge doesn't pass the laugh test. The Post must be getting desperate.
Oh my gawd, he offered Jeb Bush advice. That is just awful, what a scandal. Are they kidding? Even Democrats cant be that stupid.
Dear Washpost: Big flip.
Okay. So an election was too big to steal. They're hoping for better luck with a judicial appointment.
Well, I just think he not only shouldn't get the job, but he should be shot....don't ya'll?
Just wait 'til the Dems reveal that he once took candy from a baby.
Oh, I thought that info was "classifed"!!!
On the top of it, he ate hamburger at Wendy's, how horrible!!! Fry him!!!
A man with a job provides a service to a client.
On this basis, he should be rejected, according to Robert Wexler (RAT-FL).
Typical Democrat nut. No wonder we have $1 trillion per year going toward domestic social welfare programs. In RAT-speak, it is evil to work. It is evil to have a job and provide a service. Why is our nation disintegrating into 3rd world status? Because roughly 50% of the nation blindly follow the RATs into their gutter.
Roberts illegally supported the criminal Bush Gang when they stole the 2000 Election!!?? He isn't fit to be dogcatcher and should probably even be in jail!
(This should be fun to watch)
