Congress needs to pass the Supreme Court Ethics Act now!

758 so far! Let’s get to 1,000 signers!

Here’s a partial list of Supreme Court members’ ethical violations: Justice Clarence Thomas secretly accepted luxury trips and tuition for a family member from a major GOP donor who also bought property from Clarence Thomas that he did not disclose. The GOP donor, Harlow Crow, had business before the court–Thomas did not recuse himself. Thomas’ wife, Ginni accepted tens of thousands of dollars, secretly, from Leonard Leo, a legal activist who has helped shape the modern Supreme Court. Justice Brett Kavanaugh started off his SCOTUS run with 83 ethics complaints, not to mention sexual assault allegations. Justice Neil Gorsuch just happened to sell off property right after his SCOTUS confirmation to a law firm with business in front of the court–-Gorsuch did not recuse himself. Justice Amy Coney Barrett received millions of dollars in support of her SCOTUS confirmation from a dark money group with business before the court–Coney Barrett did not recuse herself. Chief Justice John Roberts, the leader of the pack, also has conflicts-of-interest stemming from his spouse, Jane, who earned millions of dollars recruiting lawyers for firms who have business before the Supreme Court–-Roberts did not recuse himself from those cases. Public trust in the Supreme Court is at an all-time low. Corrupt actions by sitting justices only serve to further erode that trust, as well as the court’s integrity. Supreme Court Justices must be held to account for flouting the ethical rules that apply to every other judge in the country. We must restore transparency and accountability in the U.S. Supreme Court. Congress needs to pass the Supreme Court Ethics Act now. Thanks.
