How is this a conspiracy?
The 216 year-old Constitution gives plenary power to the President to nominate whomever he chooses to the Court.
TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- During the tumultuous presidential recount in 2000, John Roberts flew to Florida and volunteered advice to Gov. Jeb Bush, whose brother was trying to clinch the election.
"The Senate should reject him on the basis of this alone," said Rep. Robert Wexler, D-Fla. "Now he is being rewarded for that partisan service."
Roberts, who was in private practice at the time, accepted Jeb Bush's invitation to come to Florida at his own expense to offer advice to the governor. He spent only about a half hour with Bush and never played a major role at a time when scores of attorneys swarmed into the state.
