Hasn't he suffered enough?


You would think that liberals would have better things to do than pick on poor Justice Clarence Thomas. The guy just can't catch a break. 

First it was that damn Anita Hill, then it was all the free trips with Harlan Crowe.

For more than two decades, Thomas has accepted luxury trips virtually every year from the Dallas businessman without disclosing them, documents and interviews show. A public servant who has a salary of $285,000, he has vacationed on Crow’s superyacht around the globe. He flies on Crow’s Bombardier Global 5000 jet. He has gone with Crow to the Bohemian Grove, the exclusive California all-male retreat, and to Crow’s sprawling ranch in East Texas. And Thomas typically spends about a week every summer at Crow’s private resort in the Adirondacks.

The extent and frequency of Crow’s apparent gifts to Thomas have no known precedent in the modern history of the U.S. Supreme Court.

These trips appeared nowhere on Thomas’ financial disclosures. His failure to report the flights appears to violate a law passed after Watergate that requires justices, judges, members of Congress and federal officials to disclose most gifts, two ethics law experts said. He also should have disclosed his trips on the yacht, these experts said.

News today that a wealthy health care executive loaned him the money for a fancy $267,000 motor home and then forgave him for everything but twenty thousand of the interest on the debt.

The drip, drip, drip of new ethics questions about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas's ethics continued Wednesday. Senate Finance Committee Chairman Ron Wyden, D-Ore., disclosed that documents turned over to the committee indicate that Thomas benefitted by having some or all of a $267,000 loan forgiven in order to purchase a luxury RV.

Like who hasn't had something like that happen to them? Sounds like a good friend, buying him a Prevost. Probably got paid back in spades, if not honest friendship. Is it his fault he has a better class of friends than we do?

Besides, like the book says, ol' Clarence is a man of the people.

In fact, he and Ginny like to park the rig at Walmart when touring the countryside and hang out with the regular folk.

brown on the outside and rich white filling...

You think he still finds time to hang out with the brothers?

It turns out that Clarence forgot to report this one too.

Hey, he has a lot on his mind, his wife helping plan the January 6 insurrection and everything. 

Give him a break, alright?

Here's what I wrote about "Justice" Thomas yesterday:

There’s absolutely no justice in this country until this guy is removed from the court or in jail. Or both. This kind of corruption makes it impossible to have faith in an objective SCOTUS. That hurts everyone. He’s a corrupt, unethical, dishonest, arrogant and smug prick.

SCOTUS is a joke with Thomas presiding.
