Judge Brock Hornby was  appointed to the “Breyer Committee,” to investigate judicial misconduct. Was Judge Hornby qualified for this position? Was this a conflict of interest? His judicial abuse “raises profound questions” with respect to whether he should enjoy the delegated authority to investigate and discipline himself.

Do you believe the judicial branch is doing  a very good job of administering The Judicial Conduct and Disability Act of 1980?  Or is this hearing just another “whitewash”?
