Roberts' Role in 2000 Election
While this might not be a direct payback for a favor, it does look like John Roberts was of great help to George Bush in the legal maneuvers to steel the 2000 election. The Dallas News Reports that, "Although his name did not appear on the briefs, three sources who were personally aware of Judge Roberts' role said he gave Republican Gov. Jeb Bush critical advice on how the Florida Legislature could constitutionally name George W. Bush the winner at a time when Republicans feared that if the recount were to continue the courts might force a different choice."

1. Yessss, this is the kind of stuff that needs to be made public....
....about this Neo-Con prick John Roberts. Using the power of the Supremem Court this is how the far right will remove all civil liberties in a very short time. But, details are needed, timelines, paper trails, words and phrases used by Roberts on Bush's behalf.

2. Roberts is a political activist who will legislate from the bench
This is my mantra re Roberts.
