Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas must recuse himself from any deliberations related to health care reform.
That's what my colleagues and I, along with 300,000 supporters, have been
saying for a month and counting now.
On Wednesday night, I took the fight to The Colbert Report, where I made it clear that, when it comes to recusal, this is an open and shut case:
The facts are simple: the Thomas household has profited from opposition to health care reform. His wife has already taken nearly $700,000 from health care opponents and now openly advertises herself as a crack lobbyist with the "experience and connections" to overturn the law of the land. This creates the perception of a serious conflict of interest.
If there's even an implication of impropriety - and $700,000 is certainly an implication - then Justice Thomas must recuse himself.
