Weinergate: While the media has been talking about Anthony Weiner’s weiner, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’s wife’s political affiliations put his impartiality on the bench in question.
As Rep. Anthony Weiner’s alleged crotch-shot dominates the news, information on possible motives to deface Weiner’s credibility are surfacing under the radar. And as it appears, Weinergate just might be a smear campaign executed by conservative activists looking to defend Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
For months, Rep. Weiner has prompted Thomas to disclose the money his wife, Virginia Thomas made working for Liberty Central, a political organization that has openly opposed President Obama’s health care reform agenda. According to Weiner, Mrs. Thomas’ political affiliations put the justice’s impartiality on the bench in question.
Details of Virginia Thomas’ salary and other payments were disclosed Friday night as the press and most Americans prepared for the Memorial Day weekend.
The timing of Thomas’ disclosure quickly became ammunition for Weiner, who made it a point to shed light on the hush-hush disclosure via twitter, hurling numerous tweets at #ConflictedClarenceThomas.
Hey everyone, this guy posted a picture of himself on twitter in his underwear with a boner, and oh, by the way my wife gets kickbacks from political organizations that might influence my decisions as a supreme court justice…. but but but but IMMORALITY BONERS ON DISPLAY!!!!!!!!
