Alito Is Being Accussed Of Leaking THe 2014 Hobby Lobby Decision

Rights group calls for Samuel Alito to be investigated after claims of leaked 2014 ruling
“A civil rights group issued a call Saturday for US supreme court justice Samuel Alito to be investigated over allegations that the judge leaked a 2014 landmark ruling involving contraception and religious rights at a private dinner with wealthy political donors.

The claim was contained in a New York Times article in which minister Rob Schenck, an anti-abortion activist, said he was told of the decision weeks before it was announced and had used the information to prepare a public relations push.

Schenck also claimed he tipped off Hobby Lobby, the craft store chain owned by Christian evangelicals that brought and won the case allowing privately-held, for-profit businesses to be exempt from regulations to which its owners religiously object, in this case requiring employers to cover certain contraceptives for their female employees.

“The Senate judiciary committee should immediately move to investigate the apparent leak by Justice Alito,” said Brian Fallon, the executive director of Demand Justice”


“Justice Samuel Alito denied allegations Saturday from a former anti-abortion activist that his wife, Martha-Ann Alito, played a role in revealing the outcome of a pending Supreme Court case in 2014. An Ohio woman friendly with the Alitos who was a donor to a Supreme Court-connected nonprofit group and allegedly served as a conduit for the sensitive information has also denied the claim.

The allegation comes six months after a stunning breach of Supreme Court secrecy — POLITICO’s publication of the draft ruling authored by Alito that overturned the landmark, 49-year-old precedent guaranteeing a federal constitutional right to abortionThe decision, which emerged in nearly identical form from the draft in late June, prompted intense scrutiny of the court, heated protests and a backlash that appears to have dulled expected advances by Republicans in the midterm congressional elections earlier this month.

On Saturday, the New York Times published claims from Rev. Rob Schenck around another controversial case — the high court’s 2014 decision about the rights of religious company owners to deny coverage for some contraceptives under Obamacare — Hobby Lobby v. Sebelius. Schenck, once an evangelical minister and prominent anti-abortion activist, has since become disillusioned with the religious right, changed denominations and now says he regrets many of his prior activities.

POLITICO spent several months attempting to corroborate Schenck’s claim published Saturday in The Times of a leak about the Hobby Lobby decision but was unable to locate anyone who heard about the decision directly from either Alito or his wife before its release at the end of June 2014.


Of course one has to wonder if he was also the leak of the Roe ruling.

She and the others involved had the foresight to know that if the certification didn't take place it would be a victory for tfg.

She, Schumer, Steny and even McConnell, Thune and others knew what had to be done and held out country together.

I'm Getting Pretty Fed Up With So Called Pundits Telling Us HOw Bad The Dems Are Doing

Hair on fire, just like on Nicole's show, saying what the Dems aren't and should be doing. WE'RE LOSING according to them. A.B. Stoddard, Mathew Dowd, Claire McKaskill, Von Hillyard and all of them. And yet if you read Jennifer Rubin's recent column, she points a finger at the media as being the real problem. I also saw a piece on CNN that said in three of the four big races we're well ahead. In Penn., only 2 points separate the 2 which is a problem. Aside from those DEms who have a habit of publicly criticizing their own, people are doing what they can to help. Certainly PJB is,how many events can he do and still run the country. THere is always more that can be done but I'm done with the sky is falling types who do nothing but bad mouth the Dems. I always wish one of the hosts of a show would ask them what they are doing to help aside from sitting in front of their computers and complaining.
