Clarence Thomas’s Friendship With Magnate
Puts Focus on Ethics

A multimillion-dollar project to preserve a
seafood cannery in Pin Point, Ga., highlights an unusual, and ethically
sensitive, friendship between the Supreme Court justice, Clarence
Thomas, and Harlan Crow, a Dallas real estate magnate and a major
contributor to conservative causes. Since the two men met, Mr. Crow has
done many favors for the justice and his wife, Virginia. In several
instances, reports of Mr. Crow’s largess has provoked controversy and
questions, adding fuel to a debate about Supreme Court ethics. But Mr.
Crow’s financing of the cannery museum, his largest and previously
unreported act of generosity, raises the sharpest questions yet — both
about Justice Thomas’s extrajudicial activities and about the extent to
which the justices should remain exempt from the code of conduct.
Although
the Supreme Court is not bound by the code, justices have said they
adhere to it. Justice Thomas, through a spokeswoman, declined to
comment. Mr. Crow also would not comment.

Well, I have to say that just from reading the above, that I'm a bit confused, since they refer to "the code of conduct", but do not say WHAT code of conduct, nor go on to explain.

I guess maybe it's a SECRET code?

Deborah L. Rhode, a Stanford University law professor who has called for stricter ethics rules for Supreme Court justices, said Justice Thomas “should not be directly involved in fund-raising activities, no matter how worthy they are or whether he’s being centrally honored by the museum.”

On the other hand, the restriction on fund-raising is primarily meant to deter judges from using their position to pressure donors, as opposed to relying on “a rich friend” like Mr. Crow, said Ronald D. Rotunda, who teaches legal ethics at Chapman University in California.

“I don’t think I could say it’s unethical,” he said. “It’s just a very peculiar situation.”

In a nutshell, as far as I'm concerned, others are trying to pick Clarence Thomas and also don't want him involved in fund raising activities. I think they're saying he can't have his own life to live because it looks bad to others.

Hi [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]Snookums!
You don't remember when this "man" was before the Senate
when they were deciding to confirm or not, do you?
Do you recall ANITA HILL and her testimony?
This "man" should never! ever! have been confirmed to the SCOTUS.
Never.
A SUPREME COURT JUSTICE SHOULD BE ABOVE REPROACH
and never give the "appearance" of something to reproach.
This guy is a creep.

Hi, Tater [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]
It isn't a secret and who and WHAT Clarence Thomas is
was very clear to me a long time ago.
