POE Launches New Petition on Change.Org

Clarence Thomas admitted recently that he falsified 20 years of Financial Disclosure documents going back to 1990, including during his confirmation process, by failing to disclose more than a million dollars in salary earned by his wife during that time.  

Ginni Thomas also launched an organization called Liberty Central and raised more than $550,000 in order to advantage of the Supreme Court’s decision in the landmark Citizens United case. Ginni Thomas then received salary and benefits from that organization. The Thomases then invested in another company called Liberty Consulting to lobby on behalf of the “Tea party,” with Mrs. Thomas also receiving “salary and benefits” from that company.  

Falsifying disclosure forms violates the criminal provisions of 5 USC app Sec. 104 and 18 USC 1001, and “judicial insider trading” violates other federal statutes.

New Information Reveals Thomas Invested In Lobbying Firm Tied To Tea Party and Engaged In "Judicial Insider Trading" To Enrich His Wife

WASHINGTON, June 1, 2011 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — ProtectOurElections.org, a campaign finance watchdog, has asked the FBI and Department of Justice to investigate Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife, Virginia (Ginni) Thomas for financial and judicial corruption partly based on the Justice's newest financial disclosures.

First, the organization alleges, Justice Thomas falsified 20 years of judicial financial disclosure forms by denying that his wife had income sources; second, he engaged in judicial corruption by receiving $100,000 in support from Citizens United during his nomination and then ruling in favor of Citizens United in 2010 without disclosing that fact or disqualifying himself; and third, he apparently conspired with his wife in a form of "judicial insider trading" by providing her with information about the result of the Court's decision in Citizens United prior to its issuance, which she then used to launch a new company to take financial advantage of that decision to benefit her and her husband.
