Bush v. Gore in effect awarded the 2000 presidency to the Bush administration by halting the Florida recount at a time when Thomas was arguably conflicted by his wife's work leading Bush transition planning for the Heritage Foundation, a right-wing advocacy group.

Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission last year upended federal election law by removing restrictions on campaign contributions by corporations and unions under the majority's theory that the law unduly burdens their First Amendment rights.

This column is excerpted from a longer version at the Justice Integrity Project site, with an extensive appendix of sources.
