(Washington, DC) – Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton made the following statement regarding the death of Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia:
Today is a sad day for those of us fighting for the rule of law and constitutional government. Justice Scalia’s death reminds us how much our liberties depend upon principled individuals in positions of power. His Supreme Court opinions stand as testament to his genius, wisdom, and his patriotic desire to share the original vision of the Founding Fathers with his fellow Americans.
The American voter should decide on Election Day who appoints Scalia’s replacement.
