Supreme Court’s rulings kicking 250 candidates off the ballot have produced an epidemic of people making the leap from “I don’t like this ruling” to “This ruling proves that our court is corrupt,” without offering so much as a plausible theory to back up the allegation, much less any evidence to prove it. That’s because there’s nothing to support the charge.
