Prof. Richard Painter Quoted in The Week about SCOTUS Potential Ethics Issues

Professor Richard Painter was quoted in The Week in an article covering the numerous concerns over potential ethical issues in SCOTUS. With confidence in SCOTUS at record lows across both party lines, many have proposed new rules for the justices in order to restore public confidence. Professor Painter was skeptical such a tactic would work, stating, "What the real problem is is there's no mechanism for enforcing the rules we already have."
