Letter to the editor: Expand the court
To the editor:
The incumbent and his basket of deplorables cook the books, the virus and the less than Supreme Court, while advancing every unimaginable conspiracy. The less than Supreme Court is now just beginning to cook state rights to local election rules.
The less than Supreme Court is already overworked and needs to be expanded. We now have a much larger and more diverse population; this fact legitimizes the adjustment.
I support adding three justices to the court. An odd number of justices invites the politicization of too many issues. In case of ties, the ruling of the previous court would be upheld. This would lessen the court’s involvement in political arguments.
My preferences (off the top of my head) for the new seats would be Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Katie Porter and Kamala Harris. These are three women that deserve lifetime tenures instead of the zealot who would criminalize the medical team and the victim of rape and/or incest over stare decisis personal rights.
