My comment was not to say they should be arrested and I don't desire us to be a banana republic however, there should be a penalty for violating the oath of office; especially for violating our governing charter.
If a legislator votes for a law that the SCOTUS strikes down as Unconstitutional - the people who elect that legislator should take a long hard look at his philosophy of governance and see if it is compatible with their own views before voting to reelect.
It is not a case that the legislator KNOWINGLY violated their oath. It is up to the SCOTUS to rule on the LAW - not the legislators who passed the law. A 5-4 decision by the SCOTUS should not engender criminal liability for those whose view agreed with only four of the nine SCOTUS judges.
Should a 5-4 decision by the SCOTUS mean criminal liability for the four Justices who agreed with a law that according to the other five was violating our governing charter?
Should there only be penalties for legislators who voted for a law that all NINE SCOTUS judges ruled was unconstitutional? Eight or Seven out of Nine? Six out of nine? Five out of nine?
Should questions over the Constitutionality of a law devolve into questions of who gets penalized and to what degree - or is it OK for the SCOTUS to rule on the law - not the legislature?
