Clarence Thomas Is Corrupt

In January, Clarence Thomas was one of five votes to allow unfettered corporate donations to political campaigns (Citizens United v. FEC). Also in January, Thomas' wife founded a lobbying group designed to profit from the above decision. It takes a particularly gullible chump to believe these two events are not connected.

This is straight up corruption. Thomas voted his own pocketbook. He has perverted the rule of law for his own profit. In the history of the United States never before was there a Supreme Court where a majority viewed their votes as marketable commodities. Scalia, Alito, Roberts, and Thomas have all made decisions that have either benefited themselves directly or benefited their friends. I am not as certain of Anthony Kennedy, I tend to believe that Kennedy is mostly a senile dupe.

But clearly, Thomas and Scalia are the most criminally venal individuals ever to sit on the Supreme Court.
