Dems ask Justice Thomas to Recuse Himself

Doesn’t this just beat all?

Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas

A group of 74 House Democrats is joining together to call for Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to remove himself from any forthcoming review of the nation’s new health care law, claiming that his wife’s reported ties to the Tea Party and other anti-health care initiatives are grounds for him to step aside.

Bill Donohue of the Catholic League comments on the attempts to silence conservative voices:

We recently learned that 74 Democrats have asked U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas to recuse himself if the health care bill comes before the high court. The reason? His wife supports the Tea Party and it is against the health care law. On Monday, disciplinary hearings will start against former Kansas Attorney General Phill Kline. The reason? He should have recused himself from investigating George Tiller, the infamous late-term abortionist, because he holds pro-life views and was allegedly “obsessed” with Tiller.
If this is the standard for recusal, then the following need to recuse themselves from all cases involving abortion:

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Ninth Circuit Judge Stephen Reinhardt and New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman.

Ginsburg’s obsession with abortion is uncontested: she co-founded the Women’s Rights Project at the ACLU.
Reinhardt is married to Ramona Ripston, who retired last year as the executive director of the Southern California ACLU; she has been obsessed with abortion rights for decades.
Schneiderman’s father is the former treasurer of NARAL, the most radical pro-abortion organization in the nation; this connection has already led the AG to recuse himself in a case involving Kelli Conlin, the former NARAL New York president. Conlin is accused of ripping off NARAL for meals, a summer rental in the Hamptons, clothes, and more than $100,000 on car services. Schneiderman should now pledge to recuse himself from all future cases involving abortion.

What’s good for the goose, should be good for the gander.
