It's time for Clarence Thomas to resign.
Blatant violations of our trust, the arrogance of his actions and the partisan voting in response to his generous sponsors, make Clarence Thomas unfit to sit in the highest court of the land.
A New York Times expose published Sunday details the improper ties between Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas and influential rightwing funder and activist Harlan Crow. Crow is a major contributor to conservative causes and a stalwart supporter of Clarence Thomas. In past years he gave Thomas' wife, Ginni Thomas, $500,000 to exploit the Citizens United decision and start a shadowy, Tea Party-related group called Liberty Central. He gave Thomas a bible (estimated value $15,000) that once belonged to Frederick Douglass, and reportedly provided the Supreme Court Justice with access to his yacht and private jet. As if that wasn't enough, the New York Times has revealed that Thomas may have improperly solicited a multi-million dollar donation from Crow to benefit one of his own pet projects near his birth place in a remote coastal community outside Savannah, Georgia. Enough is enough. I just signed a petition, calling on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to resign. You should sign the petition, too. Click below to take action.
