The Supremes at the Koch Event

The Huffington Post reports on the controversy surrounding the attendance of Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas at an event sponsored by Koch Industries.

But the Koch event appears more political than, say, the Aspen Ideas festival. In its own invitation, it was described as a "twice a year" gathering "to review strategies for combating the multitude of public policies that threaten to destroy America as we know it." In addition, it's not entirely clear what the two Justices did at the Koch event.
That's a little blatant, don't you think? Please leave a comment.


  1. I've made it pretty clear in my posts on Heller-MCDonald that the Koch funded Cato Institute's perversion of Justice makes that a very unstable precedent.

    Of course, it's not just the Kochs, but also Rupert Murdoch and his News Corp which is involved in this brainwashing of the American Public.

  2. Don't worry, Laci. George Soros has stepped up and donated money (openly for once) to his left-wing attack dogs to insure that Rupert Murdoch is put in his place.
