Impeach Antonin Scalia

      Scott Hutchins

      New York, NY

Antonin Scalia has demonstrated himself too lazy to do his job (source: http://thinkprogress.org/special/2012/03/28/454099/scalia-says-court-cant-be-bothered-to-read-obamacare-you-really-want-us-to-go-through-these-2700-pages/), and instead parrots inaccurate statements he heard on Fox News.(source: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2012/03/31/456165/video-justice-scalia-echoes-republican-political-rhetoric-during-the-affordable-care-act-argument/)  This should be the last straw. He illegally foisted George W. Bush on us as president, causing the deaths of millions of people, when multiple independent vote counts showed that Gore was the legal winner (source: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/08/19/opinion/19krugman.html). In 2009, in regard to the Troy Davis case, Scalia insisted that courts have no duty to ensure the prevention of innocent people being put to death. (source: http://www.nytimes.com/2009/08/19/opinion/19wed3.html?_r=4)  He also had a marked conflict of interest in passing Citizens United, which unfairly allows coporations to buy elections in a way they have not been allowed since 1913, (source: http://www.politico.com/news/stories/0111/47855.html), while denying civil rights to minorities (source: http://www.thenation.com/article/debriefing-scalia)

As a justice, Scalia has consistently acted in a partisan manner, using the commerce clause when it suited Bush, and choosing to ignore the commerce clause entirely when it supports Obama. This capriciousness can no longer be tolerated in a justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.
