We can't afford Alito

Republicans and Democrats alike realize secretly wiretapping Americans without a warrant violates the Constitution, especially when the president goes out of his way to sidestep informing a special court. Once again, he excuses himself, blames and overrides others who try to protest with his worn excuse of terrorism to grab more power.
Putting Judge Samuel Alito, another crony, on the highest court in the land for life will only ensure more corruption. Judge Alito refused to recuse himself when his largest investment, Vanguard mutual funds, came before his court in 2002. He wrote a pro-opinion and his investment skyrocketed.
The American people cannot afford a justice who enriches himself on the job, will rubber stamp the president's runaway powers and destroy our Constitution. Please call your senators and ask them to vote "No" on Alito.
Deb Arnason, Fort White
