Just a reminder that Clarence Thomas let a GOP megadonor take him on lavish trips, buy his mom's house and let her live there rent free, pay for his grandnephew to attend a private boarding school — all in secret until now.

How is he still on the Supreme Court?


@rbreich Because it's so shocking, so disturbing, that civilized people are stunned into inaction.

Not that it happened intentionally in this case, but the right-wing makes use of this mechanism regularly. You can get away with things that are so shocking that people don't know how to act, so they do nothing.
