The Supreme Court v. Phantom Flusher

During online, oral arguments in Barr v. American Association of Political Consultants before the US Supreme Court this week, an attorney was interrupted by a dissenting opinion—from a toilet.

Or so it sounds, according to The Washington Post.

There’s no proof beyond a reasonable doubt that it was, indeed, a toilet—but the evidence is overwhelming: a mechanical clunk followed up by that swirling sound. Shockingly, the flush appears to have been scrubbed from the court record, suggesting a SCOTUS cover-up. But reporters listening in swear they heard it—and tweeted about it in real time.

But with no eyewitnesses and myriad potential crime scenes, it was the perfect crime, cast in porcelain.
