WASHINGTON, DC – Today, the Senate Judiciary Committee will consider Senator Sheldon Whitehouse’s Supreme Court Ethics, Recusal, and Transparency Act (SCERT) Act — a critical step forward in the push for court ethics reform. Ahead of today’s markup, Accountable.US senior advisor Kyle Herrig released the following statement:

The Supreme Court corruption crisis has highlighted just how fundamentally broken our Court is and how urgently it needs reform. But even as the need for immediate reform is clear, Chief Justice Roberts has refused to do anything about it, dodging his own responsibility and forcing Congress to step in. The SCERT Act is a critical step forward in strengthening court ethics standards and restoring credibility and integrity to our highest Court.”

Accountable.US has repeatedly called for action in the aftermath of the unprecedented ethics issues undermining our nation’s highest court.
