We recently reported on a watchdog group's call for the disbarment of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Now it looks like Congressional Democrats are picking up the cause.

Protect Our Elections (POE) has filed a bar complaint against Thomas in Missouri, based on reporting from Common Cause that the justice failed to report spousal non-investment income on financial-disclosure forms.
