Over 200,000 people have signed a petition calling for the resignation of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. And those people are making making waves in Washington. Thanks to their activism, momentum is building behind an effort to hold Clarence Thomas accountable for his blatant disregard for the Judicial Code of Conduct.
Earlier this week, Congressman Chris Murphy penned a “Dear Colleague” letter asking his fellow members of Congress to sign on to an urgent request to Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith. This letter, spurred by the recent New York Times expose of Clarence Thomas’ unethical relationship with rightwing funder and activist Harlan Crow, urges the House Judiciary Committee to hold hearings on escalating reports of unethical behavior by Supreme Court Justices.
And now, Rep. Murphy has invited all Americans to add their voice to this effort.
I just co-signed the letter asking the House Judiciary Committee to investigate recent actions of Clarence Thomas. You should do the same. Click below to take action.
