Santorum: Banish Ninth Circuit Court Judges To Guam
Because threatening to exile judges he doesn’t like is something to aspire for in a POTUS.
At town hall event in Northfield, New Hampshire today, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santorum reiterated his call for abolishing the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit and floated the idea of shipping its judges off to Guam.
Santorum said the court is overly liberal and imposing a ‘reign of terror of California judges’ on other Western states, but acknowledged that outright abolition of the court wouldn’t be exactly constitutional, as judges are guaranteed lifetime appointments. So, Santorum suggested, perhaps jokingly, ‘maybe we can create a court that puts them in Guam or something like that and keep their life appointments’ and be safely quarantined. Watch it:
