Things just get murkier and weirder with Clarence the crooked judge.

Justice Thomas Reported Income From Defunct Firm, WaPo Says.

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas reported income from a real estate firm founded by his wife and her family, even after the company ceased to exist, the Washington Post said.

The Nebraska real estate firm, Ginger Ltd. Partnership, was founded in the 1980s and was shut down in 2006, the newspaper reported, citing state incorporation records. A separate firm, Ginger Holdings LLC, was created to assume control of the shuttered company’s land-leasing business, according to the report.

Thomas has continued to report income from the defunct company without mentioning the newer firm on forms, including between $50,000 and $100,000 annually in recent years, the Post said.

The misstatement follows reports by ProPublica this month that Thomas and his wife, Virginia, accepted vacations and flights for years from Harlan Crow, a wealthy real estate developer and Republican donor. The media outlet also reported that the justice and his relatives sold three Georgia properties that include Thomas’s boyhood home to Crow in 2014......
You really have to wonder what he's hiding there.

As Clarence's antics further lower trust it's way past time for some action and this explains well why.

A dangerous new low: Supreme Court must reform — or be reformed.

The recent revelations concerning apparent ethical improprieties by U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Clarence Thomas go to the heart of the court’s legitimacy and necessitate that action be taken. In back-to-back bombshell reports, investigative journalists at ProPublicauncovered apparent violations of ethical norms and law by Justice Thomas.

The facts and corroborating detail are too damaging for the court as a body, or Chief Justice John Roberts as a leader, or for Congress and the country to ignore.....
And after that came out Clarence made a move, but was it forced on him by the others?

It looks like Alito still can't get his way as maybe the others are thinking about what the fallout could do to their dwindling public reputation.

The Supreme Court needs two more days to decide what to do about mifepristone.

Which hasn't been help by Clarence (and Virginia).

Concerns about Justice Clarence Thomas' disclosures sent to judicial panel.

Third party got into the fray. I think someone forgot the Patent had run out and thought a simple move would be enough.

What's little Johnny trying to hide?

John Roberts sidesteps Senate request to discuss Clarence Thomas scandals.

It certainly seems that he's trying to hide something by doing that.

And then there's Alito.

The Clarence circus continues.

'Unacceptable': Senate Finance Committee chair asks billionaire for complete list of gifts to Thomas.

I wonder if a list does get provided if it has holes in it and crooked Clarence gets caught out even further.

It just keeps on getting worse for crooked Clarence the liar.

Thomas defense falls apart: SCOTUS did review case involving billionaire pal Harlan Crow.

It looks like they think that they're above the law (just like Donny) and can do as they please.

The Supreme Court’s tone-deaf response to the Clarence Thomas corruption scandal.

It just gets worse at SCOTUS and this 1 involves Roberts himself.

Chief Justice Roberts's wife made $10.3 million from top law firms.

No wondering needed to know why Roberts didn't want to front the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Definitely a case of, "absolute power corrupting absolutely" and that isn't likely to change unless 1 party gains a 60% majority.

Supreme Court justices demolished for using 'misdirection' to hide personal lawlessness.

And I can't see the MAGA Party of lies and corruption doing anything about that.

SCOTUS is turning into nothing but a sewer pit.

SCOTUS justices went on cushy teaching trips to Italy, Iceland, and the UK funded by a conservative law school.

Where will this crooked crap finish up at?

The latest revelations about Clarence has all the crooks coming out of the woodwork defending his crookedness.

Justice Thomas allies defend latest revelation about tuition payments by wealthy donor for relative.

What other revelations will there be?

It hasn't ended yet and the beginnings of Clarence's corruption started way back.

Justice Thomas Ethics Review Questioned by US Court Leader in 2012.

How can anyone expect true justice when the crooks are ruling the roost?
