NOM: Congress Must Investigate Ruth Bader Ginsburg If She Refuses To Recuse

We knew that Brian Brown wouldn't limit his outrage to this morning's two-line sound bite in World Net Daily. Just posted to NOM's website:
The National Organization for Marriage (NOM) today issued a demand that U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg recuse herself from hearing the pending same-sex marriage cases because of comments she gave in a media interview that foreshadows her ruling in the upcoming cases even before they are briefed or argued. If she fails to recuse herself, NOM will ask Congress to conduct an investigation of her conduct and to consider legislation to discipline justices who speak out publicly about pending cases. "Justice Ginsburg has brought disrepute on the Supreme Court and eliminated any pretext that she will approach the marriage issue with an open mind when it comes before her. Because of this prejudice, federal law requires her to remove herself from hearing the cases," said Brian Brown, NOM's president. "If she does not step aside, we will ask Congress to investigate the matter and pursue legislative remedies."
Legislative remedies? Oh, my sides. The last time a Supreme Court justice was impeached was 210 years ago. And that removal attempt only succeeded in the House.
