The Last Honest Man In Washington

One of our great traditions is that Democrat-appointed justices have to recuse themselves from cases for any tiny thing, while Republican-appointed ones, well, you know...
WASHINGTON — Antonin Scalia was the longest-tenured justice on the current Supreme Court and the country’s most prominent constitutionalist. But another quality also set him apart: Among the court’s members, he was the most frequent traveler, to spots around the globe, on trips paid for by private sponsors.

When Justice Scalia died two weeks ago, he was staying, again for free, at a West Texas hunting lodge owned by a businessman whose company had recently had a matter before the Supreme Court.

Timely reporting, New York Times.
