The Man Who Makes You Equal

The strange and unaccountable power of Justice Anthony Kennedy

 

Yesterday, Justice Anthony Kennedy was the swing vote determining that, if you are a minority in an area with a history of voter discrimination against minorities, you don’t deserve the special protections accorded in the Voting Rights Act of 1964.

Today, Justice Kennedy provided the swing vote that overturned the Defense of Marriage Act.

It appears that equality and justice in the United States is dependent upon the whims of Justice Kennedy.

Who elected him?

Oh, yeah!
