Well… I think this is a lie:
«(under “FAQ,” Frequently Asked Questions):
Q. Does the Federalist Society take positions on legal or policy issues or engage in other forms of political advocacy?
A. No. The Society is about ideas. We do not… sponsor or endorse nominees and candidates for public service.»
«Sadly, in the intervening two decades or so, the Society has moved away from being a forum for debating ideas that couldn’t be discussed elsewhere in the left-leaning legal profession, which is what so many of us found so attractive, and more toward being a vehicle for advancing Republican politics in the legal and judicial spheres.»
I guess every thing rots and something new must grow in its place.
