Justice Clarence Thomas must recuse himself from Moore v. Harper, a Trump-related case!

Justice Clarence Thomas must recuse himself from Moore v. Harper, a Trump-related case!

The Supreme Court will soon rule on the “independent state legislature theory”: the fringe idea that states can overturn the results of democratically determined elections at their will. Justice Clarence Thomas must not be part of those deliberations.

His wife, the far-right activist Ginni Thomas, fought to get fair 2020 election results thrown out in Trump’s favor and used the “independent state legislature theory” to justify her actions. There’s no way Justice Thomas can rule fairly in this case.

Sign the petition: Justice Clarence Thomas must recuse himself from Moore v. Harper, an upcoming case on the fringe “independent state legislature theory”!

Why is this important?

Justice Thomas has failed to recuse himself from cases pertaining to the 2020 election before, with disastrous results. In January 2021, Clarence Thomas was the only justice who sided with Trump in a case determining whether the January 6th Committee could access Trump White House records.

Just two months later, we learned the extent of his wife’s involvement in the Trump coup attempt. Ginni Thomas texted with Mark Meadows about the insurrection and pressured lawmakers at the state and federal levels to throw out the fairly-determined election results.

Clarence Thomas’s shameless dissent in Trump’s favor shows there’s no way he could rule fairly on Moore v. Harper. He must recuse himself!

Sign the petition: Justice Clarence Thomas must recuse himself from Moore v. Harper!
