Dan Drezner Speaks Truth to Power

Here is my original twitter post:

No written record of Ginsburg's apology now on USSC website, and USSC press office says none will be posted. No written record. #Ginsburg


Dan Drezner's thoughtful response:

Yes, how, how will anyone ever know about this? news.google.com/news?ncl=diWHJ


Here is my position:

Kozinski public reprimand: he apologized in person with a written record. Ginsburg used a press officer @dandrezner

Defendants frequently apologize in open court on the record, they don't get to use press officers @dandrezner 

Justices' speeches on SC website: tinyurl.com/zavd4lz Apologies go here. @dandrezner Dan-speaks-truth-to-power!

My taxes paid for that press officer. Not there to help SC Justices who refuse to follow Canon 5. @dandrezner
Using public resources for personal reasons is a firing offense. But heck--the law is only for the little people @dandrezner @instapundit

Does #Ginsburg use staff for her dry cleaning or to pay bills? How is apology, public business for press officer? @dandrezner @instapundit

Great catch, Seth. In the past decade or six, SCOTUS has untethered itself from proprieties legal, intellectual and ethical.

Now they don't even have the decency to pretend to hide it, vice no longer bothering to pay its tribute to virtue.
