Fox News personality Bret Baier on Wednesday reported that U.S. Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts has referred allegations of judicial misconduct claims against Justice Brett Kavanaugh to outside judges for investigation.

Judge Karen LeCraft Henderson, a George H.W. Bush nominee, forwarded more than a dozen misconduct complaints to the chief justice after determining they were substantive enough that they needed to be investigated by judges outside the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals, where Kavanaugh was serving as a judge.

I'm not educated to know if it will lead to anything.

This is a Washington Post article from four days ago about complaints forwarded to the chief justice.

@edgarblythe,
I don't know either, but stranger things have happened in the last 60 years. In the State of Maryland, there is no statute of limitations for rape or attempted rape (Montgomery County is in Maryland) however, unless victims come forward there will not be an investigation.

As far as his judicial role. i'm not familiar with his record.....but it seems that John Roberts is asking for an outside review....that's just from recent news reports...I haven't seen anything that actually confirms that an outside review is underway.

There is so much chatter these days it takes a while before you can actually rely on the 'facts' as facts.

@edgarblythe,
I wonder what would happen if something comes up in the outside review? What course of action can they take if any?

@Setanta,
apparently the complaints came in weeks ago - Justice Roberts sat on them til Kavanaugh was in

apparently it does not have to do with his judicial record but with his testimony in front of the committee (then again, that news could change anytime)

The Democratic Governors Association (DGA) spent nearly $90 million in each of the last two election cycles. To date, they have spent less than $2 million in Georgia. And $0 in Maryland.

How Democrats Fail by Ignoring Candidates Of Color
https://www.thenation.com/article/why-democrats-should-invest-in-candidates-of-color/

What they need—and indeed, what most candidates of color need in a country where the average black or Latino family has just 10 percent of the net worth of the average white family—is money. That’s why this is a moment of truth for the donors and institutions who comprise the core of Democratic spending on gubernatorial races.

In each of the last two election cycles, the Democratic Governors Association, which is “dedicated to electing Democratic governors across the country,” has spent nearly $90 million on gubernatorial races. A data-driven analysis of the underlying composition of the electorates in all 50 states and the closeness of the last gubernatorial election shows that five of the top 12 battleground races have nominees of color.

Top 16 Gubernatorial Races
(Democracy in Color)

Logic would dictate that Democratic investors should try to turn out as many Democratic voters as possible, especially in those races that are and have been the most winnable. People of color are consistently the most Democratic voters of all, giving nearly three-quarters of their votes to Democrats (in the case of Obama, the number was four-fifths).

Furthermore, academic research by Yale University professor Ebonya Washington and others has affirmed that candidates of color at the top of the ticket increase voter turnout among Americans of color.

How to win an election?
1. Purge anybody who may vote for another candidate
2. Use voting machines that are easily hacked and leave no trail
3. Install judges who make it legal

Already sent my mail in ballot

It's so nice to have that option. If I get busy or ensnared in other activities I might miss my opportunity a few times. But mail in has lots more days than even early voting. My votes, in case anyone wondered, are from a socialistic liberal's point of view. No Republicans figure, ever, but not all Democrats do by fiat. Like with Santa, it depends on if you have been a good kid this past few years.

Seeing ex presidents fraternizing and acting like old chums, as do the Clintons, Obamas and Bushes, erases the perception that they actually have differing agendas.

This is just plain stupid.

1) being an ex-president has responsibilities and expectations and sometimes that means appearing with other ex-presidents.

2) being an ex-president means that you have zero voting power, you can't sign any laws, you can't push legislation through congress, you aren't a supreme court judge, and your agenda is quite limited

3) I have republican friends who have different agendas than I do. I act friendly to them. We are old chums. We fraternize. When we go to the voting booth we still have different agendas. When we donate money or time, we do it to different causes. When we put yard signs in our yards, they are different yard signs. We still manage to be civil and friendly to each other.
