Is the Anthony Weiner topic being highlighted by the Corporate Media Propagandists (CMP) another "Whistleblower" example?   Below is a copy of the letter he sent:

 

The Honorable Justice Clarence Thomas
United States Supreme Court Building
1 First Street Northeast
Washington D.C., DC 20543
Dear Justice Thomas:

As an Associate Justice, you are entrusted with the responsibility to exercise the highest degree of discretion and impartiality when deciding a case. As Members of Congress, we were surprised by recent revelations of your financial ties to leading organizations dedicated to lobbying against the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act. We write today to respectfully ask that you maintain the integrity of this court and recuse yourself from any deliberations on the constitutionality of this act.

The appearance of a conflict of interest merits recusal under federal law. From what we have already seen, the line between your impartiality and you and your wife's financial stake in the overturn of healthcare reform is blurred. Your spouse is advertising herself as a lobbyist who has "experience and connections" and appeals to clients who want a particular decision - they want to overturn health care reform. Moreover, your failure to disclose Ginny Thomas's receipt of $686,589 from the Heritage Foundation, a prominent opponent of healthcare reform, between 2003 and 2007 has raised great concern.

This is not the first case where your impartiality was in question. As Common Cause points out, you "participated in secretive political strategy sessions, perhaps while the case was pending, with corporate leaders whose political aims were advanced by the <5-4> decision" on the Citizens United case. Your spouse also received an undisclosed salary paid for by undisclosed donors as CEO of Liberty Central, a 501(c)(4) organization that stood to benefit from the decision and played an active role in the 2010 elections.

Given these facts, there is a strong conflict between the Thomas household's financial gain through your spouse's activities and your role as an Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court. We urge you to recuse yourself from this case. If the US Supreme Court's decision is to be viewed as legitimate by the American people, this is the only correct path.

We appreciate your thoughtful consideration of this request.

Sincerely,
ANTHONY D. WEINER

As most people are not aware because the CMP have kept any negative news pertaining to Thomas (sorry, but I cannot give this person the dignity of the title his position commands) in view of the many illegal, unethical, immoral things he has done.   Of course Weiner doesn't even mention Thomas failed to even report the nearly $Billion his wife brought in on legal documents that officials are to complete every year.   Thomas "forgot" at least the last eight years!   Nothing happened to Thomas for this unethical, if not illegal, act, but Weiner is having all H*ll come down on him for something he may not have even done.   But that part is not in the interests of our CMP.

This is but another example of the CMP's efforts to hide information and/or actions of those holding key positions within our government and demonizing those who attempt to do the right thing.   It is another example of the privately held media being controlled by those whose agenda is anti-democracy.
