It just gets worse.

This is from a group I belong to the Pen:

"Could it possibly get any worse? It just recently came to light that

so-called "Citizens United", nothing more than a corporate sponsored

astroturf lobbying organization, the very same group he ruled in

favor of to decimate our campaign finance laws last year, was the

driving force in paying for and running ads to promote the

confirmation of Thomas himself to the Supreme Court.

The standard for a justice to step aside from hearing a particular

case is supposed to be whether there might be an "appearance of

impartiality". Yet here we have a member of the Supreme Court handing

decisions to the people who were instrumental in putting him on the

court in the first place. It is simply unacceptable to have a someone

sitting on the Supreme Court with such patent contempt for simple


Impeach Thomas Action Page:

In fact, all the so-called justices who voted in favor of Citizens

United should be impeached. Scalia has shown similar contempt for any

suggestion he should recuse himself from cases where he was clearly

biased in favor of one side, always the corporate one. And we know

now that Roberts and Alito lied through their teeth at their

confirmation hearings about their committed reactionary agenda.

So help us get that word out there by getting one of the "Impeach The

Supreme Court 5" bumper stickers. There is no charge whatsoever, not

even shipping, if you have not requested a bumper sticker already.

And here is the page where you can do that. Of course, if you can

make a donation of any amount, this is what makes it possible for us

to send free bumper stickers to anyone who cannot make a donation

right now.

Impeach Supreme Court bumper stickers:

And if you are a super activist, please consider picking up a bulk

pack of 25 of these for a very modest cost, to hand out to your

friends and neighbors, and be a real community organizer.

Please take action NOW, so we can win all victories that are supposed

to be ours, and forward this alert as widely as possible.
