Will Roberts be the first Registered Lobbyist
to become a Supreme Court Justice?


Check out the list at this link. Roberts is on the list of Registered Lobbyists Appointed to Bush's Transition Teams.

Only cost him $80,000 for the privilege.

So if Robert's was appointed to the bench in 2003, it appears that he may have been lobbying while he was judging. Is this was even legal?

1. If it's not, it sure should be.

2. Good catch! If it wasn't against the law, it should be. How
sleazy!

3. Is a judge on the Circuit Court of Appeals
considered to be a Federal employee?

If they are, wouldn't the Hatch Act apply?
