So Is Clarence Thomas Above The Law?

I mean with all these men in positions of power being asked to step down, Moore, Franken, Rose, Weinstein, not 45 at least not yet anyway, is Clarence Thomas above the law? Is Thomas very much like the judge in Sweeney Todd? Just asking.

Then maybe bit's a good thing that more Americans are becoming aware of Republican perversions.

Then they need to see that Republicans try to disguise themselves as necessary slime. Americans need to stop swallowing Republican poison because their party tries to convince them it will make America well again. The truth is Republicans offer nothing but death.

He is (forget for the moment how he got there) a sitting Supreme Court Justice of the Republican Party at a time when they hold the White House and both houses of Congress. He enjoys the usual Republican immunity from prosecution, accountability, or shame for any and all offenses.

And the current statute of limitations on reporting sexual harassment is six months or 300 days if a state or local agency enforces a law prohibiting employment discrimination on the same basis.

The allegations were known then and considered. It's one thing to deal with fresh allegations concerning 26-year-old events, it's another to deal with known, aired 26-year-old allegations.

The law is whatever he wants or can buy. The very concept of corruption is one he does not recognize.
