Thomas has also earned income from Hillsdale College and the Heritage Foundation, the latter being proof enough, Weiner argued, that the justice is unable to participate in the eventual cases to reach the court.
So essentially, what it all comes down to is that the dems think Thomas won't vote the way want, so they're trying to get him out.
(Carrie) Severino, a former clerk to Thomas, told FoxNews.com that the only "reasonable explanation" for the recent attacks on Thomas is fear that Justice Elena Kagan, former solicitor general for the Obama administration, is going to have to recuse herself from future health care cases before the court.
"I'm not sure she will need to recuse herself, either, but there's a lot of questions out there," she added. "Already we've seen that she was involved at a supervisory level with strategizing to defend this law."
....Or the dems think they will lose Kagan's vote. Either way, we can put this down as a glaring example of politics defined.
I thought one of the reasons the Supreme Court was a panel of judges was to bring diverse experience, background, and point of view to it's decisions.
