The previously impeached Judge Roy Moore wants Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg impeached because they didn't recuse themselves from the same sex marriage decision. That's rich, isn't it?

Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore, a rabid opponent of marriage equality, told the Family Research Council’s Tony Perkins on Tuesday that he believes Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg should be impeached for officiating the marriages of same-sex couples.

“We have justices on the Supreme Court right now who have actually performed same-sex marriages: Ginsburg and Kagan,” Moore observed, noting that when doing so just two weeks ago, Ginsburg seemed to slyly emphasize the word “Constitution” when pronouncing the couple married by the powers vested in her by the founding document. “Now she’s commenting on a case which is before her, and under judicial ethics of federal judges, she can’t do that. Congress should do something about this.”

“I know that at least one motion for recusal’s been filed against these justices by the Foundation for Moral Law in Montgomery, Alabama,” Moore added, referring to the conservative organization that he founded and that his wife runs. “[Ginsburg] is doing it in the face of plain evidence that she’s violating the ethical rules for federal judges… If Congress is going to let these justices disobey the Constitution they’re sworn to uphold, then Congress has a check and a balance. It’s called impeachment.”

There is at least one Supreme Court Justice who should be impeached, and that's Clarence Thomas. His marriage to a conservative activist lobbyist means none of his decisions have any integrity at all, particularly those concerning the Affordable Care Act.
