Brett Kavanaugh just opted out of responding to Illinois Republicans’ request for Supreme Court intervention against the governors’ ban on large political rallies.
Kavanaugh gave no reason for his decision.
The Washington Examiner reports:
Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh rejected an application from Illinois Republicans challenging the governor’s ban on political activity during the coronavirus pandemic.
Kavanaugh, a conservative member of the high court, declined the emergency request (which was placed to him by geography alone) that complained that Illinois Gov. J.B. Pritzker, a Democrat, allowed religious gatherings and protests but not political rallies or gatherings beyond 50 people.
Local officials such as governors and mayors have been passing oppressive and unconstitutional restrictions on their citizens with no sign that they’ll ever be held to account for their tyranny.
It’s disappointing that Trump’s star appointee to the Supreme Court didn’t lift a finger to stop that.
