The U.S. Supreme Court ruled against the Republicans to decide the Pennsylvania Supreme Court’s decision to grant the Democratic Party’s request to make several mail-in voting changes that critics have decried as vulnerable to fraud valid.
As Breitbart News reported last month, “The Pennsylvania Supreme Court ruled … that ballots received three days after Election Day will still be counted — even if there is no evidence they were postmarked on time.”
“The Supreme Court, however, split 4-4 on the request, leaving the decision of the lower Court in place. Chief Justice John Roberts sided with the Court’s liberal minority; the remaining four conservative justices sided with the Republican request.
The Court currently has only eight justices, due to the passing last month of Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
President Donald Trump has nominated Judge Amy Coney Barrett to replace Ginsburg,” Breitbart reported.
In his book, One Vote Away, Senator Ted Cruz, one of the best Supreme Court appellate lawyers ever, mentioned that some Justices are mindful of the media when they write their opinions. Some want to go to cocktail parties, etc., in the D.C. area attended by liberals and want to be liked. Of course, he wasn’t referring to Roberts. However, time will tell whether Roberts is following in this path.
George W. Bush nominated Roberts for the position. If Bush still is a conservative, he must be regretting that decision—especially when they were better candidates available at the time.
