"WASHINGTON Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has accepted tens of thousands of dollars worth of gifts since joining the high court, including $1,200 worth of tires, valuable historical items and a $5,000 personal check to help pay a relative's education expenses.

The gifts also included a Bible once owned by the 19th century author and abolitionist leader Frederick Douglass, which Thomas valued at $19,000, and a bust of President Lincoln valued at $15,000.

He also took a free trip aboard a private jet to the exclusive Bohemian Grove club in Northern California arranged by a wealthy Texas real estate investor who helped run an advocacy group that filed briefs with the Supreme Court.

Those and other gifts were disclosed by Thomas under a 1978 federal ethics law that requires high-ranking government officials, including the nine Supreme Court justices, to file a report each year that lists gifts, money and other items they have received."

Well here it is, the first all out attack on Justice Thomas by the
"racest" liberal left. Fear the GW might appoint him as Chief Justice has the "RACEST" liberal left already digging for dirt they can twist to slam this fine man.

Is he really the most qualified to be chief justice? Not really. If you are going with a hard core right winger you would go for Scalila. If the gifts that Thomas took are within the bounds of law and he has not ruled on any cases that effect the givers, then he should not have to worry about it.
