Uncle Tom (on the take) again?

Clarence Thomas bought a $267,000 RV using funds from a Democratic donor

A report from The New York Times details yet another luxury obtained by Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas using funds from a wealthy associate. In this instance, it's been revealed that he purchased a Prevost Marathon RV in 1999, using $267,230 received from Anthony Welters, a former executive at UnitedHealthCare who worked alongside Thomas in the Reagan administration, per the outlet. In a statement on the matter, Welters said that the funds were considered a loan and that it has since been "satisfied," avoiding the phrasing "paid off," which means it could have been a gift that would have then needed to be disclosed.

The Democrats fingered this time around.

Even more on Uncle Tom's SCOTUS "tenure".

"Staggering levels of grift": Experts say Clarence Thomas trips expose SCOTUS corruption "crisis"

Since ascending to the highest court, Thomas has received an expansive swath of luxury gifts and travel from wealthy, conservative benefactors including, at minimum, 38 destination vacations, among which is a previously unreported voyage on a yacht around the Bahamas; 26 flights on private jets and eight by helicopter; a dozen VIP passes to professional and college sporting events with seats in the skybox; two luxury resort stays in Florida and Jamaica; and one standing invitation to an especially exclusive golf club along the Atlantic coast.

"This accounting of Thomas' travel, revealed for the first time here from an array of previously unavailable information, is the fullest to date of the generosity that has regularly afforded Thomas a lifestyle far beyond what his income could provide," ProPublica reported. "And it is almost certainly an undercount."

This 38 trips had to be professionally planned and carefully executed.

These certainly were not casual "just so happened" trips. It speaks to massive corruption and corruptness.

This court is highly compromise.
