HuffPost: The Supreme Court Is Doing Whatever It Wants. Will Democrats Ever Investigate?
ACS President Russ Feingold was quoted in a HuffPost article about this Tuesday's Senate Judiciary Committee hearing on Supreme Court ethics reform. As the Supreme Court's legitimacy crisis is further illuminated by recent revelations regarding some Justices' conflicts of interest, several organizations, including ACS, have publicly voiced support for rigorous ethics reform in the nation's highest court.
" 'The Senate Judiciary Committee’s scheduled hearing is a step in this direction, but we need to see more consistent oversight and strong action to [rein] in the Court’s ‘emperor has no clothes’ approach to ethics and address the Court’s legitimacy crisis,' Russ Feingold, president of the American Constitution Society and a former Democratic senator from Wisconsin who served on the judiciary committee, said in a statement to HuffPost."
