Rep. Bill Pascrell (D-N.J.) has called on Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to resign following more reports of his wife’s efforts to overturn the 2020 election.

“Over the last few years, we have become numb to bad acts by powerful actors, but Clarence and Ginni Thomas have participated in one of the worst breaches of trust ever seen in our court system,” Pascrell said in a statement Thursday, referring to efforts to keep then-President Donald Trump in power despite his loss to Joe Biden.

“And while she was doing all this, her husband, Justice Clarence Thomas, was hearing litigation relating to the 2020 election,” Pascrell said, calling Thomas “a corrupt jurist who has poisoned the High Court.”

“Clarence Thomas should have dignity and final respect for our democracy and resign,” Pascrell concluded.

2. And the people in Hell want ice water.

You can be damn sure that all the demanding in the world won't make Clarence budge an inch. In fact, it will just make him dig in harder and be an even bigger fascist ass than he already is.

4. Thomas should retire and spend more time with his family.

There is no way of knowing how much time they have together before Ginni gets whisked to jail.

6. If he does resign, what happens to the abortion and gun rulings due by two weeks?

Is his opinion on record, or would it be invalidated?

10. If he had an ounce of integrity, he would resign but we all know he won't. It is still hard to

believe that this "person" replaced Justice Thurgood Marshall.

11. I don't think ANY of the right wing justices are there for the good of our country.

They are only there for the good of the gop.

15. This is a no-brainer. Clarence was the ONLY dissenting judge in one opinion related to the election.

He should resign.

20. Clarence won't resign for the simple reason that he's above all that...IE: the law don't apply to

a Conservative Republican, to a man of his personal abilities and achievements, to a superior human being, to a Supreme Court Justice, nor to someone who has thus far beaten the system.

Another reason he won't is that once he did he would be subject to possible prosecution, a condition he no doubt fears in his heart of hearts.

For those who mistakenly assume he has any sense of honor regarding his position let me assure you in no uncertain terms that he is every bit as arrogant and irrationally disdainful of such a concept as TFG.
