From the Federalist Papers:
From a body which had had even a partial agency in passing bad laws we could rarely expect a disposition to temper and moderate them in the application. The same spirit which had operated in making them would be too apt to operate in interpreting them; still less could it be expected that men who had infringed the Constitution in the character of legislators
would be disposed to repair the breach in the character of judges.
– Hamilton, Number 81
