“Corporate Accountability International does so much with modest resources. Their accomplishments are remarkable. I am happy to contribute because I believe my gifts are having a disproportionately big impact, while the world is moved closer to my vision of fairness.”
A Supreme Conflict of Interest
Did these two men, Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, have a disturbing and undisclosed conflict of interest when they ruled on the Citizens United case -- which opened the floodgates to unlimited corporate political spending?
Sign the petition calling for a Justice Department investigation of whether Scalia and Thomas should have recused themselves from the Citizens United case because of their participation in secret political strategy meetings with Koch Industries!
Justices Scalia and Thomas have been featured guests at secretive political strategy sessions sponsored by Koch Industries, a multi-billion dollar conglomerate that has invested millions of dollars in political campaigns and causes. Koch Industries was a major beneficiary of the Citizens United decision, which overturned long-established law to permit corporations to spend unlimited amounts on political advocacy.
Other guests at the private Koch meetings have included corporate leaders and conservative commentators. The involvement of Justices Scalia and Thomas creates a troubling appearance of bias, and should have led the Justices to disqualify or recuse themselves from participation in the Citizens United case. The Department of Justice has a duty to launch an immediate investigation.
