‘Impeach Supreme Court,’ Says Houston Law Professor Print E-mail
by Tom McGregor    Tue, Apr 10, 2012, 01:56 AM

U.S. Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D.-Tx.) has funneled millions of dollars in earmarks for the University of Houston and even cheered for the UH Cougars football team in the halls of Congress.

Now, a UH law professor is returning the favor by attempting to impeach the US Supreme Court if the nation’s highest court overturns ObamaCare.

The Houston Chronicle reports that, “a Houston law professor said if the Supreme Court justices get rid of the health care law, we should get rid of them.”

David R. Dow, the Cullen Professor at the University of Houston, argued his case in a column published by the Daily Beast website on Tuesday.

According to the Houston Chronicle, “in the article, Dow begins by introducing the precedent Thomas Jefferson was a leader in a movement to impeach a Justice Samuel chase because he felt Chase’s rulings undermined the Constitution.”

Nonetheless, multiple polls and surveys show the Supreme Court remains popular with American voters and impeachment may seem unlikely.

what a bunch of arrogant "jerks"! Who are "they" to set themselves up to do such a thing as destroy the country! If there is any "impeaching to do" it needs to start with Lee & Obama!

No wonder the U of Houston is better known as Cougar High. Dow is not saying anything about the Supreme Court, he is really smearing David R Dow.

This woiuld have been a great idea 209 years ago. But President Jefferson liked the outcome of Marbury v. Madison. Pity. Now it takes a constitutional convention and three-quarters of the states and several years to right a wrong S Ct decision.
