In November – December of 2000, the national election for president was under contention. The news media was abuzz with hanging chads, pregnant chads and recounts. Next thing you know, the Supreme Court has stopped the recount and Bush was president. The talking points emanating from the bobble heads were that a constitutional crisis has been avoided and that we need to rally behind the president. Let’s move on, nothing to see here.

But what really happened?!?

What happened is that five highly partisan members of the Supreme Court ignored the wishes of 50 million US voters and handed the election to Bush. These actions were a betrayal of their oath of office, a betrayal of the wishes of the country. Bugliosi also believes the decision was criminal and possibly treasonous. It was also bad law.

Vincent Bugliosi, a lifelong LA prosecuting attorney, makes an air tight case for the impeachment and prosecution of Scalia, Thomas, O’Connor, Renquist and Kennedy in “The Betrayal of America: How the Supreme Court Undermined the Constitution and Chose Our President”.

The book was written in February of 2001, unfortunately it does not appear that anyone was listening. The sad fact is that the damage continues unabated under the Roberts court as precedence is ignored and settled law is re-interpreted to reflect their radical right wing idiotology.
