So now I learn that this inexperienced candidate for the Supreme Court was part of the "Brooks Brothers riot" in 2000 that disrupted the vote count in Palm Beach county, along with John Bolton.
That should tell anyone who cares what Roberts thinks of voting rights and states rights: they are fine as long as they help the Republican Party.
I get a queasy feeling when I hear Southern law enforcement officers talk about "outside agitators", but that's what we had in Florida during the 2000 vote. A hoard of lawyers who abused the court system with suits that they didn't actually have the standing to bring. These weren't Florida lawyers, they were "outside agitators" brought in with promises of jobs which they have received from the Bush administration.
