Did Justice Ginsburg Commit an Impeachable Act?

As America waits on the Supreme Court ruling on “same-sex” marriage, every pundit is speculating what the outcome will be.  Will the historical definition of marriage be upheld?  Or, will the Court bow to the pressures of the radical homosexual activists and destroy the uniqueness of marriage as an institution in America?
It appears one Supreme Court Justice has already made up her mind and is going down the left’s road to oblivion.  Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg (appointed by then President Bill Clinton) has already performed a “same-sex” marriage since the Court heard the case.
That act may be grounds for action to be taken against Ginsburg on the grounds of judicial misconduct.  CNS Newsexplains:
On May 17, Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg officiated the marriage of two men and used the occasion to cite her constitutional right to do so. In June, the high court – including Ginsburg’s vote – will announce its decision on whether homosexual marriage is guaranteed by the Constitution.

That’s grounds for impeachment, Alabama Supreme Court Chief Justice Roy Moore told in an exclusive interview.
“She’s basically thumbing her nose in front of the other justices that she’s going to say what she wants to say and do what she wants to do, and she’s going to ignore the rules of ethics,” Moore said, adding that judges are bound by those rules.
“I think there’s grounds for the legislature of the United States and Congress to act,” Moore said. “They could act to impeach her; they could remove her for bad behavior, because judges serve for good behavior under Article 3 (of the Constitution).
Moore said the fact that Ginsburg made a public statement that she had a right under the Constitution to perform a same-sex wedding, under the ethics rules, is bad behavior given her role in deciding the Obergefell v. Hodges case.
“They could find that’s bad behavior and subject to impeachment and removal,” Moore said.
Apparently Judge Ginsburg doesn’t feel she’s bound by any judicial propriety or ethics on this matter.  Her blind devotion to a left wing agenda is driving her jurisprudence.  (Remember, this is the same Judge Ginsburg who got drunk before and fell asleep during the most recent State of the Union speech.)

Moore’s Foundation for Moral Law, in fact, petitioned the court claiming two of the nine judges should recuse themselves from the same-sex marriage decision – Ginsburg and Elena Kagan, who has also officiated a same-sex wedding.
The foundation, under the leadership of Moore’s wife Kayla Moore, issued a press release in April on the recusal motion.
“Canon 3A(6) of the Code of Conduct for United States Judges provides that ‘A judge should not make public comment on the merits of a matter pending or impending in any court.’ 28 U.S.C. sec 455(a) mandates that a Justice ‘shall disqualify himself in any proceeding in which his impartiality might reasonably be questioned.’
“Because they have performed same-sex marriages, and because Justice Ginsburg has spoken publicly in favor of same-sex marriage, the foundation contends that those justices are predisposed to rule in favor of same-sex marriage and are unable or unwilling to consider this case impartially, and that their words and actions give the appearance of bias, if not bias itself.”

“Common sense dictates that one who has performed same-sex marriages cannot objectively rule on their legality,” Kayla Moore said in the announcement of the motion. “If these justices participate in this case, the court’s decision will forever be questioned as being based on their personal feelings rather than on the Constitution itself.
