NOT HIDING IT ANYMORE: These Justices Are Now Publicly Attending Right-Wing Events

Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh

Conservative Justices Samuel Alito, Amy Coney Barrett, Neil Gorsuch, and Brett Kavanaugh attended a right-wing gala at the first Federal Society convention since the court overturned Roe vs. Wade in its controversial Dobbs vs. Jackson Women’s Health decision. Their attendance risks the credibility of the court, which is at the lowest point in the court’s history.

As noted by AP’s correspondent Mark Sherman, the group represents four-fifths of the majority of the court that overturned Roe.

Their presence at the event raised eyebrows across the political spectrum.

Former U.S. Attorney Joyce Vance wondered if the justices at the dinner had forgotten their job.

“As with so many of our institutions, the judiciary can only do its work when the public has confidence in it,” Vance noted. “Some of our judges seem to have forgotten that and that they have life tenure to serve the American people, not the political agenda of the people who put them in place.
