Oh, come on. We all know it was probably Ginni Thomas, so take your complaints to your buddy Clarence, you right-wing asshole. And it wasn't the leak that made you a target, it was the DECISION. Via the Washington Post:

Justice Samuel A. Alito Jr. said Tuesday that the leak of his draft opinion to overturn Roe v. Wade made his colleagues in the majority on the U.S. Supreme Court “targets for assassination.”

The leak last spring before the court eliminated the nationwide right to abortion was a “grave betrayal of trust by somebody, and it was a shock,” he said. The threat to the justices, he added, was not theoretical because it “gave people a rational reason to think they could prevent that from happening by killing one of us.”

He noted that a man has been charged in an alleged attempt to kill Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, who was in the majority to overturn Roe. The California man, arrested near the justice’s home before the final opinion was released, was upset by the leaked draft, authorities said.

Imagine having the luxury of living in that bubble. How many decisions did Alito make that put our lives in danger?

Alito said he has no problem with the public, the media and academics criticizing the court’s legal reasoning in its rulings. But he took issue with those who have questioned the legitimacy of the court.

“To say that the court is exhibiting a lack of integrity is something quite different. That goes to character, not to a disagreement with the result or the reasoning. It goes to character,” Alito said.

Said the man who lied during his nomination hearing about Roe being "settled law." That's some character there, Sammy boy.

Turning the Supreme Court into the legal extension of the Republican Congress, where we can predict the outcome of any major legal case based only on conservative votes, is a mere coincidence! And giving speeches at the Heritage Foundation doesn't speak for your neutrality, either.

How many people have died of covid since Alito voted against vaccine mandates?

Here's some advice the good Sisters of the Immaculate Heart gave me a long time ago, Sammy boy: Lie down with dogs, rise up with fleas!

Can you help us out?
