Washington, DC–Following the announcement that Sens. Durbin and Whitehouse sent a letter to Chief Justice Roberts requesting a meeting regarding the mounting ethics scandals before the US Supreme Court, Demand Justice Managing Director Maggie Jo Buchanan released the following statement:

“The American people deserve transparency and swift action. The overwhelming silence from the Chief Justice over the past week speaks volumes—he is either unable or unwilling to check the out-of-control, MAGA-friendly members of his Court. 

“It is Congress’s job to do everything in their power to work to ensure our judiciary is one that every person in this county can trust.”

On Tuesday Demand Justice launched a six-figure campaign by projecting the “Stop the Steal” symbol onto the U.S. Supreme Court. The campaign calls for Justice Alito’s recusal from election cases and for Congress to investigate his actions.
