Arlen Specter Slams Alito & Roberts On Campaign Finance Decision

By  | 

Specter lost his senate seat, but he has some parting shots for Republican appointed judges.

From CNN:

“Ignoring a massive congressional record and reversing recent decisions, Chief Justice Roberts and Justice Alito repudiated their confirmation testimony given under oath and provided the key votes to permit corporations and unions to secretly pay for political advertising – thus effectively undermining the basic Democratic principle of the power of one person, one vote,” said Specter. Chief Justice Roberts promised to just call balls and strikes and then he moved the bases.”

Wait a second…activist Republican judges? That’s crazy! They’re strict constitutionalists!

By the way, Specter lost to Joe Sestak for the Dem primary victory…who then lost to Republican Pat Toomey of the Club for Growth…who doesn’t think corporations should have to pay any taxes. He also claims to want to end abortion and put doctors in jail.

Wait…let me say that again…Specter lost to Joe Sestak for the Dem primary victory…who then lost to Pat Toomey of the Club for Growth…who doesn’t think corporations should have to pay any taxes. He also claims to want to end abortion and put doctors in jail.

Welcome to our crazy new world.
