Clarence Thomas Crook Update

Those who are still capable of feeling some slight degree of outrage over the open criminal behavior of a Supreme Court Justice (which I mentioned in an earlier post) and the willingness of the media to just ignore it, may like to read this excellent treatment of the issue at Brad Blog.

During the time this man was engaging in his deliberate criminality, he participated in saddling the nation with George W. Bush as president, and in turning our elections over to corporations and foreign governments.  If Clarence Thomas were a Democrat, he would already have been driven from the court and sent to hell.  But he's a Republican.  He's not expected to be any more than a crook, so it's all okay.

You beat me to it, GE. I'm going to post about this as well. We all should be spreading this story about the tax cheating Supreme Court Justice all over the internet.

The rightwing bloggers had apoplexy over some Obama cabinet appointees who were late in filing their income tax returns, but are strikingly silent about a Supreme Court Justice who has done the same.

Not the same - he filed deliberately fraudulent returns.

Of course it's not the same. But late tax filing by Democrats is far worse than the theft of hundreds of thousands of dollars by a Republican.
