WSGW OnLine Poll for YOU: Supreme Court Term Limits
Recently, following a series of ethics revelations, former House Speaker Nancy Pelosi endorsed term limits for Supreme Court Justices. She specifically cited Justice Thomas and Justice Alito.
Pelosi says it’s a body, chosen for life, never have to run for office, nominated, confirmed for life with no accountability for their ethics behavior.
Term limits on the Supreme Court would require a constitutional amendment, or Congress could pass legislation requiring justices to retire, take senior status with lesser duties, or move to an appeals court.
