Radio Host: Kagan, Ginsburg Should Have Recused Themselves Because They’re ‘Liberal Jews’
Iowa radio host Jan Mickelson believes Justices Elena Kagan and Ruth Bader Ginsburg should not have participated in the decision legalizing gay marriage because they’re “liberal Jews.”
MICKELSON:…The case to which I refer: Judge Roberts should have required two of the members of the Supreme Court to recuse themselves, Kagan and Ginsburg, because both of them had literally presided over same-gender weddings previous to the ruling. In any other kind of thing, if they– a vested emotional interest and a vested religious interest in their part, would have caused them to have been required to recuse themselves. If they had a monetary interest in the outcome of a court case, they would have been required to recuse themselves. In this case, they had a religious motivation for moving forward and conducting same-gender marriage: they are both liberal Jews. No, I’m not saying anything bad, this is a correct assessment of their world view.
