NY TIMES INVESTIGATES ADOPTION RECORDS OF SUPREME COURT NOMINEE'S CHILDREN

NY TIMES INVESTIGATES ADOPTION RECORDS OF SUPREME COURT NOMINEE'S CHILDREN

**Exclusive**

The DRUDGE REPORT has uncovered a plot in the NEW YORK TIMES' newsroom to look into the adoption of the children of Supreme Court Nominee John G. Roberts.

The TIMES has investigative reporter Glen Justice hot on the case to investigate adoption records of Judge Roberts’ two young children, Josie age 5 and Jack age 4, a top source reveals.

Judge Roberts and his wife Jane adopted the children when they each were infants.

Both children were adopted from Latin America.

A TIMES insider claims the look into the adoptions are part of the paper's "standard background check."

Roberts’ young son Jack delighted millions of Americans during his father’s Supreme Court nomination announcement ceremony when he wouldn’t stop dancing while the President and his father spoke to a national television audience.

Previously the WASHINGTON POST Style section had published a story criticizing the outfits Josie’s and Jack’s mother had them wear at the announcement ceremony.

One top Washington official with knowledge of the NEW YORK TIMES’ plans declared: “Trying to pry into the lives of the Roberts’ family like this is despicable. Children’s lives should be off limits. The TIMES is putting politics over fundamental decency.”

One top Republican official when told of the situation was incredulous. “This can’t possibly be true?”

And they wonder why their circulation continues to tank. Hey, why not just dig up his relatives and test their DNA too? I mean, we just have to know if Roberts was a legitimate child.

They're trying to find out 1) how they adopted 2 white children and 2) how they adopted 2 white children from Latin America.

At least someone in the NYT's newsroom was uncomfortable with this, as evidenced by the leak to Drudge.

I wonder if the Times will try to link the fact that Roberts has adopted children with the abortion issue (what am I saying, of course they will).

My guess would be that, in their black little hearts, they are trying to find some "irregularity" in the adoptions. This really is beyond despicable.

To quote a great leader of our time, "Bring It On", this will add another nail in the coffin of their credibility. Combine this with the poop that will eventually come out on what Judith Miller is hiding in the Plame investigation, this can only be positive.

I only regret that children have be used to argue the creditbility case against the NYT in the court of public opinion

You would think these goofballs would learn, but hate and fear drives one to do awful things.

"and exactly what is the nytimes trying to find? this is total crap."

I can hear the warped "logic" now... "from Latin American, hmmm? They certainly don't LOOK Latin American. Bet there's a Nazi fugitive in the woodpile somewhere."

Then, segue into the usual "Bush is a Nazi" mantra.

I would bet they are looking into whether the adoption agency is one that has had trouble and then smear him with that...

or, they want to suggest he bought his children. It will also rile up the lefties. They are generally against international adoption as well as the Unicef people.

They are gonna find Mr. Roberts misspelled his wife's mother's maiden name on the adaption papers, and say he committed perjury and is unfit.

This is an outrage. I am the father of two fantastic adopted little girls (4 and 1, both stateside). This is an invasion not only of the children's legitimate privacy interest, but also of the birthmothers'.

What can this possibly have to do with Roberts' suitability as a SCJ? The only thing I can think of, is that the Times wants to cause a chilling effect on future conservative nominees. The libs will not be investigated in this manner.

Both children were adopted from Latin America.

Do I just have no eye for ethnicity, or don't the kids look more Northern European than Latin? They don't look Hispanic or Indian, and I don't think blond hair is frequent even among the white upper class to our South.

Watch, somebody will dig up or fake something unsavory about the adoption agency's methods. I suppose "glutton for punishment" must be added to the requirements for any Supreme Court nominee.
