Investigate Justices Thomas and Scalia NOW!

We at Americans for Democratic Action were outraged by the Supreme Court's 5-4 decision in Citizens United vs.  Federal Election Commission, 130 S. Ct. 876 (2010). That decision ended the restrictions on corporate political spending on elections that had been in place since 1947!

The ruling opened the spigot for more than 280 million dollars to flow from corporate groups in the 2010 elections.  In essence, they used the Citizens United decision to attack our liberals in Congress and for vicious misleading attacks on the House to Republican hands.  

Thanks to the work of progressive allies, we’ve learned that both Justices Thomas and Scalia participated in Tea Party political strategy sessions.  There is also a potential undisclosed financial conflict of interest with Justice Thomas due to his wife’s role as CEO of Liberty Central, an organization that benefited from the Citizens United decision and played an active role in the 2010 elections.

We are asking Attorney General Eric Holder to formally investigate these claims, but we need your help to get their attention.  The American people have a right to know if the impartiality of Justices Thomas and Scalia was skewed by political or monetary motives.

Please add your name to the ever growing list of supporters, and we will personally deliver the ADA petition signed by you to Attorney General Eric Holder’s office.

Dear Attorney General,

We are deeply disturbed by Justices Thomas and Scalia's participation in Tea Party political strategy sessions. Furthermore, we are concerned that Justice Thomas may have an undisclosed financial conflict of interest, due to his wife's role as CEO of a Tea Party affiliated organization that benefited from the Citizens United decision.

We urge you to initiate an official investigation to look into these claims that two of our Supreme Court judges may not be fulfilling their duty to adhere to the Court's constitutional commitment to maintain the highest standard of impartiality.

Thank you.
