30 ORGANIZATIONS URGE HOUSE PANEL TO HOLD HEARINGS FOLLOWING LATEST REVELATIONS ABOUT JUSTICE THOMAS’ CONFLICT OF INTEREST RELATED TO WIFE’S INVOLVEMENT IN JAN. 6TH

WASHINGTON, DC— A coalition of 30 organizations sent a letter to leaders of the House Judiciary Committee urging them to immediately call hearings in response to news reports about Justice Clarence Thomas’ obvious conflict of interest related to the January 6th events given his wife’s participation.

The letter to House Judiciary Committee Chair Jerrold Nadler and House Judiciary Subcommittee on Courts, Intellectual Property, and the Internet Chair Rep. Hank Johnson says in part: “We write to urge you to proceed immediately with a hearing on new reports that demonstrate the urgent need for a Supreme Court code of ethics. Several deeply concerning news reports reveal increasingly conspicuous conflicts of interest created by the partisan political activism of Justice Thomas’s wife, Virginia Thomas, and Justice Thomas’s wholesale failure to address those conflicts even further undermines the legitimacy of the Supreme Court.”

Signatories to the letter include: African American Ministers In Action, Alliance for Justice, American Atheists, American Constitution Society, American Federation of Teachers, Blue Wave Postcard Movement, Broward for Progress, Clean Elections Texas, CommonDefense.us, Demand Justice, Demand Progress, Democracy 21, Demos, End Citizens United / Let America Vote Action Fund, Equality California, Faiths for Safe Water, Indivisible, MoveOn Civil Action, National Council of Jewish Women, NETWORK Lobby for Catholic Social Justice, Open The Government, People For the American Way, People’s Parity Project, Reproaction, Secure Elections Network, Silver State, Equality-Nevada, Stand Up America, Take Back the Court Action Fund, URGE: Unite for Reproductive & Gender Equity, Venice Resistance.
