RIP: Robert Bork

His supreme court nomination in 1987 did more to politicize the appointment of Judges than any before him. The process underwent a fundamental change when his hearings took place.

He was 85.

RIP.

He recently predicted that the Supreme Court of the United States would rule in favor of "homosexual marriage" within a year or two.

He will always be spoken about with those men of integrity, former Attorney General Elliot Richardson and former Deputy Attorney General William Ruckelshaus.
