They like him because they view him as an employee (that's the nicest way to put it) and he is doing his job and ruling on cases the way he wants. What he does outside of producing results for them is irrelevant. They will only care if it starts interfering with his results. They did not want him for ethics, judicial, moral or otherwise. They do not care if he follows the law. They care that he decides things the way they want them decided.

As I said once before in another Thomas corruption thread: Where the FUCK are the IRS and Virginia state tax authorities? If this asshole didn't disclose these trips, then he sure as hell didn't declare the cash value of them as income on his tax returns either. That's goddamn TAX EVASION. And, I presume he files joint tax returns with his insurrection-loving, seditionist cunt wife.

These two motherfuckers are common thug CRIMINALS. They belong in PRISON. Let's get on with it so Dark Brandon can appoint Anita Hill to so-called "Justice" Thomas' SCOTUS seat.

R20, I'm guessing that Thomas supporters would argue the gifts are tax-exempt and not reportable as income by the donee. At most, they might argue the donor would have to file gift-tax returns. I'm not a tax professional, though. I'm just blowing smoke out my ass. Thomas will come out of this with pie on his plate.

R22, his supporters can think what they want, but unless Thomas is enrolled with the IRS as a qualified charitable organization, he has to declare it as income.

The irony of Anita Hill being nominated by Biden after what he said to her during the nominating process for Thomas, might make up for the hell she went through. She’s up there in years so she might not want to go through a nomination and get burned by republicans.

R50 Thurgood Marshall was a credit to his race. And all races. I remember seeing framed photos of him in offices, businesses and homes. People were proud of him and looked up to him as a sterling example of a black man who not only was in a high and responsible role, but that he was a good ethical man. None of those qualities belong to Clarence Thomas. Not only is he not a credit to his race, he is a disgrace.

Leonard Leo, Trump’s Supreme Court “whisperer,” & his nonprofit network are under investigation by the D.C. Attorney General.

[quote] The Federalist Society co-chair and ex-Trump judicial adviser has utilized nonprofit groups to collect more than $1 billion for conservative causes.

[quote] The probe follows @politico's reporting that the tax-exempt "charitable" group paid his for-profit tens of millions over 2 years, with little indication of what services were rendered.

[quote] The nonprofit had been using a UPS drop box in DC's Georgetown as its mailing address. Paperwork filed in Texas lists the address of another UPS store, this one in a strip mall next to the “Snooty Pig Cafe” Paperwork filed in Virginia lists yet a different address: a virtual office suite in Forth Worth shared by a “Two Men and a Truck” franchise.

[quote] Citing our previous report, a progressive watchdog group had called on the IRS and D.C. AG to investigate whether the groups may be violating their tax-exempt status by “siphoning” assets or income for personal use.

It gets MUCH worse again:

Clarence Thomas has attended at least two Koch donor summits, putting him in the extraordinary position of having helped a political network that has brought multiple cases before the Supreme Court.

Thomas’ involvement in the events is part of a yearslong, personal relationship with the Koch brothers that has remained almost entirely out of public view. It developed over years of trips to the Bohemian Grove, a secretive all-men’s retreat in Northern California. Thomas has been a regular at the Grove for two decades, where he stayed in a small camp with real estate billionaire Harlan Crow and the Kochs, according to records and people who’ve spent time with him there.

“I can’t imagine — it takes my breath away, frankly — that he would go to a Koch network event for donors,” said John E. Jones III, a retired federal judge appointed by President George W. Bush. Jones said that if he had gone to a Koch summit as a district court judge, “I’d have gotten a letter that would’ve commenced a disciplinary proceeding.”
