In light of recent ethics scandals involving justices like Clarence Thomas and Sonia Sotomayor, there is a growing call for transparency and real reform within the Supreme Court.
Thomas, who attended at least two Koch donor summits, put himself in the extraordinary position of having helped a political network that has brought multiple cases before the Supreme Court.
Because state lawmakers’ districts are often small, they are far more accessible and much more sensitive to public pressure than members of Congress and the U.S. Senate.
Writing in his annual financial disclosure form, Thomas said that he “inadvertently failed to realize” that the deal needed to be publicly disclosed.
The most effective solution may be not just ethical regulations and term limits, but reforming the way we conduct presidential elections entirely.
Thomas has secretly reaped the benefits from a network of wealthy and well-connected patrons that is far more extensive than previously understood.
State supreme courts were once dominated by Democrats, but not anymore.
In a 6-3 decision, the Supreme Court claimed that the Biden administration's plan lacked authority and overstepped the powers of the Education Department and instead needed to go through Congress.
"The Higher Education Act should be used immediately and rapidly to deliver on this essential commitment."
