“Appointed For Life…”

I heard it on the news in the wake of Associate Justice Ginsburg’s public comments on Donald Trump that “Supreme Court Justices are appointed for life…” Like much promulgated by the mainstream news media, it is not true.

The Constitution says: “The Judges, both of the supreme and inferior Courts, shall hold their Offices during good Behaviour…” which is to say that Justices can be removed for bad behavior.

Ginsburg issued a statement saying she ‘regrets‘ comments she made about candidate Donald Trump, saying they were ‘ill-advised,’ adding, ‘Judges should avoid commenting on a candidate for public office.’

Bad Justice! <whack> Bad, BAD! <whack-whack>
