The media seems to be having trouble figuring out whether John Roberts was a member of the Federalist Society. Maybe they should just read the transcripts from Federalist Society events. Here’s a quote by Elliot Mincberg of PFAW at a Federalist Society event on 9/9/03:

Anybody who honestly believes that people like Miguel Estrada and John Roberts were selected solely because of merit without any view whatsoever about their points of view, their membership in the Federalist Society, other things, I have a bridge I would love to sell them.

No one else on the panel objected to Mincberg’s description of Roberts, including Leonard Leo, the Federalist Society’s executive director.
