Where on earth would they get that idea? Hmm.
A law student’s diploma was held up after an officer at the conservative Federalist Society had a tantrum over a piece of satire sent to a listserv for political debate.
Sen. John Kennedy (R-LA) pretended dark money isn't a problem unless someone is bribing a judge? Lisa Graves, Sen. Leahy's former chief counsel for judicial nominations, schooled him, and told him to nix the hick shtick.
White supremacists aren't the only ones feeling empowered by Trump.
Sheldon Whitehouse explains all of it: How dark money bought the judicial system in the US, and what they're getting for their money. "There is a lot of hard-to-explain hypocrisy and rush taking place right now, and my experience around politics is that when you find hypocrisy in the daylight, look for power in the shadows." —Sen.

The Rhode Island senator blasts the GOP's "hypocritical, tire-squealing 180" on the need to wait until after an election to fill a SCOTUS seat, but he really goes to town on Texas Senator (and failing candidate for re-election) John Cornyn for his devotion to Koch Brothers dark money.
