Over 25,000 Sign Petition Calling For Justice Thomas To Be Impeached

An online petition calling for the House of Representatives to impeach Justice Clarence Thomas has garnered well over 25,000 signatures. Although some of the reasons presented for removing Thomas are less compelling, such as the claim that he needed to recuse himself from the Affordable Care Act case, the petition also cites several legitimate scandals involving Justice Thomas — including a gifting scandal that closely resembles the circumstances that forced Justice Abe Fortas to resign from the Court in 1969.
