Wise Latina Charity Hire Justice Took Millions In Payments For Books from Penguin/Random House, and Then Refused to Recuse Herself From Cases Involving Her Sugar Daddy Corporation

These socialists sure do all love money.

And I wonder how much of those payments consisted of "advances" which were never even close to recouped by the publisher.

An advance is supposed to be an advance against future royalties. They're pre-paying you what they expect your royalties will be. But when it comes to leftwing politicians, these media mega-corporations routinely pay enormous "advances" which are never recouped from sales. Which seems like straight-up bribery or at least undisclosed campaign donations to me.

At any rate, the "Wise Latina" decided that a media company giving her greedy ass three million dollars did not give her a conflict of interest.

Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor didn't recuse herself from multiple cases involving a book publisher -- Penguin Random House -- which paid her more than $3 million since 2010, according to a report.

The copyright infringement cases, in which Penguin Random House stood to suffer financial damage if the court ruled unfavorably, were not taken up by the high court but justices voted on whether or not to hear the cases.

What they're talking about is a denial of writ of certiorari. That writ grants discretionary review to cases. Almost all Supreme Court reviews come through the discretionary process, wherein they can either hear an appeal, or let the Appellate Court's ruling stand.

We don't know which way Sotomayor voted -- to help Penguin/Random House or against them -- because these votes are never disclosed. The court just issues a statement, cert. denied.

Altogether, Sotomayor earned $3.6 million from Penguin Random House and its subsidiaries for agreeing to let them publish her 2013 memoir, "My Beloved World," and numerous children's books since then, the Daily Wire reported on Thursday.

The same year that her memoir came out, Sotomayor voted on whether the high court should take up Aaron Greenspan v. Random House.

Her liberal colleague at the time, Justice Stephen Breyer, recused himself from the case, having also received money from Penguin Random House.


In 2020, Sotomayor also took part in deciding on a petition filed by fellow children's author Jennie Nicassio, who argued that Penguin Random House was selling a book nearly identical to one she had already written and published. On the same day that the petition was delivered to the justices, Penguin Random House cut Sotomayor a check for $10,586, according to the Daily Wire.

Again, Breyer recused himself from the case that the court declined to take up.

This may be harsh, but I think we have enough evidence now:

The "Wise Latina" is in fact a Jive Turkey.
