  •  It's been extensively covered here. (0+ / 0-)

    And the New York Times, L.A. Times, Washington Post, MSNBC, etc.

    Pretty off-topic for this diary, though. Searching on Clarence Thomas should find you the info you seek -- the facts are not what you gathered from the TV. (There's a lot of disagreement about them, but this has all been laid out several times.)

    •  Isn't this a matter of our Supreme Court? (0+ / 0-)

      I don't see how this is off topic.  If a Supreme Court justice is not ethical how can this set a strong tone in the country for others?

      •  I think "Supreme Court" is not the topic here. (0+ / 0-)

        I think it is Dr. West's arrest. I might or might not change my view once the speech is posted. I don't mean to criticize your view of what the topic is, but if you read the comments, you'll see that the focus is on Dr. West.

        However, the SC is a very important topic, and I encourage you to look at the many prior diaries that explain what the Thomas issues are and -- crucially, are NOT. The shorthand version you came away with is wrong in several important respects. You'll find a wider range of views in those diaries than here, including my own in several.
