Democratic Senate Primary Leader Endorses Court-Packing

On The Volokh Conspiracy, there is a story about state senator Cynthia Dill — who is a civil-rights lawyer and the leader in the Democratic Senate primary there — and her recommendations for dealing with the Supreme Court:

Dill said she approves of President Obama’s picks and would consider expanding the number of justices on the Court if decisions she sees as unfavorable continue to be passed down. “I think there’s promise, but if we continue to get these poor decisions, I’m not opposed to adding justices. The Constitution doesn’t say we have to have nine justices, and if these nine can’t figure it out and keep producing 5-4 decisions that are crippling our country, let’s throw a few more good justices on the Court and straighten things out.”

The rest here.
