It was both Adam Cray (who I think should be brought back) and Ray Palmer on Task Force X and yes, I think that should, using Bedard Logic, rule him out of the JLA. It's not just doing bad stuff. It's being part of a government task force doing bad stuff. You can cover up some misdeeds but Suicide Squad is a big ugly can of worms just wiating to be dumped on the JLA.

Ray and Mari both ended up on the Suicide Squad because their own personal enemies ended up facing down the Squad at the same time they were involved. Ray, especially, only assisted Waller because it was the only way to stop from having to escape CIA assassins every few weeks and to avenge the death of his successor. I can hardly blame him for that any more than I can blame the core League helping the Squad once. Mari's a bit more complicated of a case, since she stuck around after the Squad finished off the man she was hunting down for almost killing her and murdering her friends, but, in her defense, she had basically lost her mind with grief at that point. Oracle's worse... she intentionally helped Waller and her Squad as a way of getting back in the superhuman game after her crippling, rather than for any intense personal reason for a limited time.
