Chief Justice Roberts To Resign Sometime In The Next 40 Years
Leave it to a gossip magazine to come out with a political scoop that they found in their own outhouse.
Radar Online (linking is what they want, so linking is what they won't get) reported that Supreme Court Chief Justice John Roberts was "seriously considering stepping down from the nation’s highest court for personal reasons." He was appointed just five years ago by President George W. Bush, and should he leave this year, he would be the shortest-tenured SCOTUS head honcho since the 1700s.
But no. None of it's true. Radar retracted their story.
This does it for me. No longer will I use Radar for political news and opinion. Their scathing damnation of campaign finance was what really hooked me in, and their eye-opening exposé on senators and lobbyists probably changed the entire political landscape, as well as their investigative report on the President using his office to get his friends out of drunk driving convictions. Sorry, Radar. When it comes to Beltway news, you are dead to me.
