Clarence Thomas is not above the law

One of the bedrock principles of democracy is that nobody is above the law--not even Supreme Court justices like Clarence Thomas.

Thomas has flouted the law for years by failing to disclose his wife's substantial income despite being legally required to report it.

That is why U.S. Representative Louise Slaughter is demanding that the Judicial Conference, an administrative arm of the court, uphold the Ethics in Government Act by referring Thomas' apparent misdeeds to the Attorney General for further investigation.

Rep. Slaughter has written a letter to Chief Justice John Roberts, who is the presiding officer of the Judicial Conference, about this, and she has invited Americans to add their voice by co-signing the letter (which you can read below).

Add your name to Rep. Slaughter's letter demanding action on Clarence Thomas.

      I'm signing this petition because Justice Thomas AND justice Scalia both attended a dinner where they were HONORED by law firms (Bancroft PLLC & Jones Day) that will later be arguing against the constitutionality of the Affordable Health Care Act. This is not illegal, but they both should see how unethical it is to hang out & be slapped on the back by ONE SIDE of this very contentious case.

      **Add on everything else he has done (or not done) over the years and he most definitely should be OUT.

      **Impeach him.

      Yes, IMPEACH HIM!!!

      There CAN'T be the JUSTICE that Americans and all others are ENTITLED TO in the Courts, as long as there is a CONFLICT-OF-INTEREST that is SO GROSS!!!

      No he is not above it....rather way below it.

      His lack of financial disclosure is just one of many reasons that Clarence Thomas is a disgrace to the Supreme Court. He is no substitute for the venerable Thurgood Marshall and should be removed at once. His consistently unethical behavior on several fronts mocks the highest law of the land.

      Thus far it sure has seemed that Clarence Thomas is above the law, along with George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, etc., etc., etc. and just about anyone with enough money to buy "justice" in the American legal system...
