Dear Progressive Ally,
Efforts to hold Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas accountable for ethics violations have jumped to the next level, with a group of House Democrats led by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) now pushing for a Justice Department investigation into Justice Thomas’ possible serious violations.
Please sign our petition supporting the call for an investigation now.
Various reports have raised concerns about Justice Clarence Thomas’ seemingly flagrant disregard for important disclosure requirements under the Ethics in Government Act of 1978. Justice Thomas failed to disclose his wife’s earnings on judicial financial disclosure forms on which he was required to do so. And there are questions about his acceptance of gifts from interests with significant stake in several Supreme Court cases.
The Supreme Court’s very legitimacy and the public’s trust in the institution are under threat if Justices do not strictly adhere to ethical standards. It’s incredibly important that Justice Thomas’ violations are not ignored and that he be held accountable.
Hold Justice Clarence Thomas accountable — take action to support a DOJ investigation now!
After you sign, please help spread the word and recruit more Americans to this cause.
Thank you for stand up for fair and just courts — the American Way.
Michael Keegan, President
