Sorry but if we had focused more on Kavanaugh's history of habitual lying, his ethical lapses, his affinity for ridiculous conspiracy theories and his untreated alcoholism, he would not be sitting in the SCOTUS today.

Jeff ... you have not been paying attention. We are in an era when corruption is ok with the majority party. Why would a few peccadilloes bother these folks?

It would have been easier to confirm him.

I wonder what was in those 12 complaints about Kavanaugh that Justice Roberts was sitting on during the confirmation hearing.

Ignoring Supreme Court decisions?
No pants under the robe when he gets a hot defendant?
Kegger in his chambers every Friday night?

Kind of boggles the mind to think there must be nine more!

"conduct prejudicial" sounds like misconduct and as examples

as a note of commentary, I will refer you specifically back to the last Senate hearing when J Kavanaugh gave his introductory remarks and allow you to derive your own conclusions as to relevance to actually complaints

That tirade did kind of set him up for this: If he fails to recuse himself from any sort of Democrat versus Republican case, he violates many of those standards. If he does recuse himself, the Court is back to 4:4. Sometimes people surprise you. Jeff Sessions was smart enough to side-step going to jail when he recused himself. He obviously observed some bad stuff, and thought: "NOPE"

Well, we're gonna find out pretty qwick, I figure. Even if he doesn't recuse, with the majority, it may make absolutely no difference.
