“Rob Schenck, an evangelical minister who headed the Faith and Action group headquartered near the Supreme Court from 1995 to 2018, said he arranged over the years for about 20 couples to fly to Washington to visit with and entertain Supreme Court Justices Clarence Thomas, Samuel Alito and the late Antonin Scalia.”
Can we lobby judges that we know will hear our cases in future decisions? Evidently so. If there has been much doubt about whether the Court is above the political arena, it has been erased, in my opinion. Who needs to win elections if you have the judges in your pockets. Reminiscent of Vito Corleone in “The Godfather”.
