Retired justice at center of Nevada ballot initiative controversy

WASHINGTON (CNN) - A Nevada group supporting a change in how judges in the state are selected has apologized for political "robocalls" featuring retired Justice Sandra Day O'Connor, which were mistakenly sent out in the middle of the night.

Nevadans for Qualified Judges admitted about 50,000 residents received the automated phone calls between midnight and 1:15 a.m. Monday. The non-profit organization blamed a California marketing firm for the mistake.

    "Conservative legal groups expressed deep concern over O'Connor's continuing involvement in such a hotly contested "political" issue."

    As long as Justice Thomas' wife can be a Tea Bagger, what's the problem??!! I wonder what they talk about over breakfast..how the kids are doing...? Yes, she has a right to be politically active but, a Supreme Court justice's wife....come on, get real!!
