case of justice Thomas his personal income is tied to his wife's lobbying activity. He should recuse himself. No brainer.

The SCOTUS is as ethical as the corporations that the SCOTUS has deemed 'people'

It's not only her activities. It's that he failed to disclose those activities and the resulting income are required on joint income disclosure forms.

Yet he knew to do this regarding his wife's/joint income prior to rising to the Supreme Court.

Wait for it: "This is a High Tax Lynching!"

That guy keeps pushing Kagan to recuse. But Kagan has already recused herself on certain cases, so she is demonstrating a lot more sensitivity toward ethical issues than the others. I don't recall any of the others recusing themselves even once. Anybody?

The court has become politicized. It's why these ethical issues have developed in the first place, because Thomas and Scalia spend their spare time at right-wing fund-raisers attended by big conservative donors like the Koch brothers. Justice Thomas is getting a $1.3 million favor from Harlan Crow to have a cultural museum built in his birthplace of Pin Point, Ga: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/artinfo/is-clar...

So it's getting to the point that we're beginning the Supreme Court to consistently favor conservatives whenever there's an issue like this. And they were supposed to be the de-politicizing final arbitors of "fairness." Ironic, isn't it?
