Roberts was one of the usurpers of 2000: Quiet role in Florida recount - In the aftermath of the disputed 2000 presidential election, Roberts played a key, if quiet, role in the Florida recount. Although his name did not appear on the briefs, three sources who were personally aware of Roberts's role said he gave Gov. Jeb Bush (R) critical advice on how the Florida Legislature could constitutionally name George W. Bush the winner at a time when Republicans feared that if the recount were to continue the courts might force a different choice.
Now he's being named to the supreme court as payment for his loyalty to Bush (and against the will of the majority of the American people). This government is like a bunch of underworld thugs.
