Press Release

New Revelations About Ginni Thomas’ Efforts to Overturn 2020 Election Highlight Need for Supreme Court Code of Ethics

WASHINGTON -
Sean Eldridge, President & Founder of Stand Up America, issued the following statement in response to reports that Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife, Ginni Thomas, urged Arizona lawmakers to intervene in the election certification process to overturn the 2020 presidential election results. 

“Ginni Thomas’ involvement in the seditious conspiracy to overturn the will of the American people poses a conflict of interest that Congress can no longer ignore. 

“Justice Thomas violated his oath to ‘faithfully and impartially’ administer justice by failing to recuse himself in cases related to the 2020 presidential election. No one should be above the law — not even Supreme Court justices. 

“It’s time to demand accountability from the highest court in the land. Congress should act immediately to pass a code of ethics for the Supreme Court.”
