In 2008, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas decided to send his teenage grandnephew to Hidden Lake Academy, a private boarding school in the foothills of northern Georgia.

Crow paid Martin’s tuition the entire time he was a student there, which was about a year, Grimwood told ProPublica.

Bennett said he was friendly with Thomas and declined to comment for the record about the specifics of Thomas’ actions.

Crow also paid money to Thomas and his relatives in an undisclosed real estate deal, ProPublica found.

After he purchased the house where Thomas’ mother lives, Crow poured tens of thousands of dollars into improving the property.

Paoletta confirmed that Crow paid for Martin’s tuition at both Randolph-Macon Academy and Hidden Lake, saying Crow paid for one year at each.
