Thomas caught cheating again

Hey, Slappy's in hot water...I thought supreme court justices were supposed to be...you know..law abiding?...

"Democratic lawmakers on Thursday called for a federal investigation into Clarence Thomas'
failure to report hundreds of thousands of dollars on annual financial disclosure forms.

Led by Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-N.Y.), 20 House Democrats sent a letter to the Judicial Conference
-- the entity that frames guidelines for the administration of federal courts -- requesting that they refer
the matter of Thomas' non-compliance with the Ethics Act of 1978 to the Department of Justice.

The letter outlines how, throughout his 20-year tenure on the Supreme Court, Thomas routinely checked
a box titled "none" on his annual financial disclosure forms, indicating that his wife had received no income.
But in reality, she earned nearly $700,000 from the Heritage Foundation from 2003 to 2007 alone.

Slaughter called it "absurd" to suggest that Thomas may not have known how to fill out the forms."

How do we get rid of crooked, stupid, palm-upturned judges?

You're right. Impeachment.

"Under Article III of the Constitution, they "hold their offices during good behavior." For the most part that means till death, resignation, or retirement, but judges who misbehave badly enough can be removed from office by impeachment, same as for the president and "all civil officers of the United States." To judge from the impeachment record, such misbehavior is pretty rare. To date only 17 federal officeholders have had impeachment proceedings started against them in the House of Representatives; of the 15 tried by the Senate (the other two bailed first), only seven were convicted and removed from office. Thirteen of the seventeen impeachments (and all seven convictions) were of federal judges. Only one Supreme Court justice has been impeached: Samuel Chase, in 1804. Historians agree the charges against Chase were politically motivated; in any case he was acquitted by the Senate.

The fact that impeachment is a time-consuming and expensive process deters abuse, and lifetime appointment is likewise meant to prevent political meddling. The downside is that some judges remain on the job long after they've begun to lose it mentally."

Oh, man. If these charges are accurate, replacing him in the teeth of election year and all of the major cases the court is addressing will be a shit storm.

Part of the nonsense campaign by the left to get an American judge off the coming Obamacare case to balance out the mandated recusal of the Ugly Dykling.

Yawn.

Just hold Thomas to the same standard the Democrats held Charles Rangel to.

A supreme court justice...pulling this shit. A particularly moronic, un-involved with his office... supreme court judge.

I hope he gets impeached...we need someone with integrity in there, someone who's never been a member of the freakin' Federalist society.
We have Roberts shoving the "corporations are people with rights" shit down our throats so that Exxon and BOA can buy up all the airwaves and keep everyone out who doesn't have 100 million to toss around...the supreme court is hijacked by extremists...and goofy crooks like Slappy Thomas.

That is not in the article. You shouldn't source an article, and falsely attribute words that are not there.

Not cool.




Anyway, doubt their letter will get anywhere. It's only 20 signers, and it's all Democrats.
