The Constitution 9, Ellen 0

The U.S. Supreme Court issued its decision today in that case involving Minnesota tax collectors' confiscating an elderly woman's home for back taxes, and keeping all the sale proceeds even though they far exceeded her tax debt. Readers may recall that as the case in which Oregon's attorney general, Ellen Rosenblum, signed an outrageous friend-of-the-court brief urging the justices to throw the taxpayer's lawsuit out. States have the right to define property, blah blah blah.

Well, the old lady won

And to show you how wrong, how exquisitely wrong, Rosenblum's brief was, the vote among the justices was 9 to 0.

Nine to nothing.

She should never have signed that brief. I repeat: For shame.


  1. In Ellen’s case.
    It wasn’t law. It was pure politics.
    Shameful doesn’t cover it.

    1. I don’t get the political point of trampling the elderly. Is she that hot to protect the PERS?

    2. Just HER PERS!

    3. PERS takes no prisoners, spares no one

  2. Yup. She's beholden to anyone in the Democrat establishment.
