E.J. Dionne in the lead sentence of his Washington Post column, E.J. Dionne Jr.: Justice Scalia should resign - The Washington Post
And Mr. Dionne backs up his lead with every sentence. Without engaging in hypocrisy, no one across the political spectrum could say that Mr. Scalia is performing his duties in the way expected of U.S. Supreme Court justices.
The day the Supreme Court gathered behind closed doors to consider the politically divisive question of whether it would hear a challenge to President Obama’s healthcare law, two of its justices, Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, were feted at a dinner sponsored by the law firm that will argue the case before the high court.
And this behavior is ethical in what way? If Thomas and Scalia don’t recuse themselves, they should be impeached.
