A judge should maintain and enforce high standards of conduct and should personally observe those standards, so that the integrity and independen­ce of the judiciary may be preserved.
A judge should not: solicit funds for, pay an assessment to, or make a contributi­on to a political organizati­on or candidate, or attend or purchase a ticket for a dinner or other event sponsored by a political organizati­on or candidate. (From: CODE OF CONDUCT FOR UNITED STATES JUDGES)

How independen­t can a judge be in cases that directly affect Koch industries­, if his inept wife received $ $680.000 from a Koch-funde­d organizati­on for basically doing nothing? If the US justice system has wants to maintain an ounce of integrity, Thomas needs to go.

More Koch Brothers * The End of the American Dream

Charles and David Koch are the biggest players in extremist Republican politics. They've personally contributed more than $85 million to right-wing causes over the last 15 years. They convene regular meetings of super-rich people and organize them to contribute large sums to their campaign to destroy the American Dream, shrink the middle class, increase America's growing income inequality, preserve tax breaks for special interests like Big Oil, and strip workers of their rights. They'll do anything, no matter how harmful it may be to our country, to advance the interests of big corporations and the 1%.
