You won’t see this reported by the major media but the Massachusetts Chief Justice and three Associate Justices have been indicted by a member of the Legislature. This is the first step in impeachment. The indictment has five charges: that Chief Justice Margaret Marshall violated judicial ethics and the law by encouraging homosexuals to bring a lawsuit before the courts to give her the opportunity to create gay marriage; that she permitted a lower court judge to do the same; that she made public comments about a pending case; that the associate justices joined her in violating the constitution; and that they did not hold open and fair public discussions.
Getting the four justices impeached will be an uphill battle, but a grassroots effort could work wonders. We shouldn’t underestimate the value of organizing individuals. Neither should we overestimate the importance of the fact that the major media hasn’t covered this yet. If enough people get motivated by this, they will have to cover it. The best way to stay informed is at the independent Mass News web site and by joining one of the groups fighting to preserve marriage, like Mass. Citizens for Marriage. We need to show these judges that we won’t let them act like dictators, taking away out rights and imposing unconstitutional novelties upon us.
