Tiik the words right out of my mouth...this is definately RACIST. I want a full congressional probe of these democrats... :)
Leftists trying to stack the deck again.
This absolutely should be done - they’re only going after Thomas because he’s black.
The reason they’re doing this is that they know there is an entirely legitimate case against Kagan having a word on this case,
and this is entirely to “muddy the waters” so that the public will see “both sides doing it”.
It can never be good when a mob of Dems wants to probe you.
It is no secret Obama despises Thomas.
Bottom line Obama dislikes Thomas he has cited his extreme dislike for him publicly.Justice Thomas’ wife is a tea partier so they want him investigated.
When will the GOP Eunuchs call for an investigation into Obama and the corruption that permeates his Administration including the Moochelle?
... along with a copy of the form that Thomas filed in 2007:
None of this is discussed the the extensive comments to The Hill article, which are nothing but partisan sniping by both sides.
At least you are making an effort to engage in a rational discussion.
You knew this was coming. Ok,we can have the Elena kagan trial at the same time.
Kagan doesn’t report her wife’s income either!
Why was the committee, in Democrat majority hands, not concerned from '91-'95 or '07-'11?
Of course he is. He's every bit the bully of FDR. Hopefully America won't reelect him but I'm not confident it won't.
I can understand the sniping because constitutionally, congress cannot stop Thomas using this complaint so its all for show and probably donations. Congress would either need to impeach him which isn’t going to happen or restrict the SC from ruling on this case, which is less likely than impeachment.
So, the whole thing is merely for show.
My initial reaction was that there is likely some rational reason for omitting the information other than a desire to hide the information or negligence.
I would assume he has top people helping him on his finances including this form so that it was exclude intentionally. I further assume that Thomas or his wife at this point does not care much what folks think of him and would not be shy about disclosing her income sources. Further, his wife was working receiving money from a Non-profit whose finances are required to be largely transparent and amounts like she was supposedly receiving end up as public record.
My guess is there was something in the law that did not require her reporting it or what is being reported as income paid to her by the non-profit included travel, conferences, and other reimbursable expenses and may not have been considered compensation by her or even the IRS.
I believe that Justice Clarence Thomas will stand his ground and not yield to these a$$hat democrats.
I believe (IIRC) that Thomas has already adddressed this issue and it was not reportable income. Plus it was no secret that his wife was working on this, so he wasn’t trying to hide anything.
In any case, I think the best defense is a good offense, and we should go after Kagan. She should be recused immediately. There is no way she could be fair.

They are a pack of thieves, vicious dogs not to insult dogs and are similar to “b*tch brigades” ! Funny in my adult years, whenever I dealt with liberal dem’s especailly those in authority,
> It can never be good when a mob of Dems wants to probe you.
Makes sense (at least strategically for the cowards)
I tend to agree with you that Justice Thomas has all his bases covered and the rabid Dems will strike out on this one.
