>How crooked is Clarence Thomas?

Discrepancies in reports about an appearance by Justice Clarence Thomas (R-Slappy) at a
political retreat for wealthy conservatives three years ago have prompted new questions to
the Supreme Court from a group that advocates changing campaign finance laws.

When questions were first raised about the retreat last month, a court spokeswoman said
Slappy had made a "brief drop-by" at the event in Palm Springs, Calif., in January 2008
and had given a talk.

In his financial disclosure report for that year, however, Justice Slappy reported that the
Federalist Society, a reactionary right-wing legal group, had reimbursed him an undisclosed
amount for four days of “transportation, meals and accommodations” over that weekend.
The event is organized by Charles and David Koch, brothers who have used millions of
dollars from the energy conglomerate they run in Wichita, Kan., to finance conservative
causes such as the Teabagger movement, which they claim is a "grass roots" organization.

Arn Pearson, a vice president at the advocacy group Common Cause, said the two statements
appeared at odds. His group sent a letter to the Supreme Court on Monday asking for “further
clarification” as to whether the justice spent four days at the retreat for the entire event or was
there only briefly.

“I don’t think the explanation they’ve given is credible,” Mr. Pearson said in an interview.
He said that if Slappy's visit was a “four-day, all-expenses paid trip in sunny Palm Springs,”
it should have been reported as a gift under federal law.

We have crooked judges on the Supreme Court.
Slappy excepts bribes, Scalia discusses
upxoming cases with Cheney while they shoot caged animals - it's all so sick and crooked.

...but of course the Democrats would never bring that up.

Wouldn't be prudent...
