It's the latest ethics scandal to hit Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.
The ongoing ethics scandal surrounding Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas now has a new player involved: Kellyanne Conway.
According to a report from the Washington Post, conservative judicial activist Leonard Leo wanted to send thousands of dollars to Virginia "Ginni" Thomas, the wife of Clarence Thomas, in 2012.
So, he asked Kellyanne Conway, then a GOP pollster, for help routing the money from Judicial Education Project, a nonprofit Leo advised, to Ginni Thomas for consultation work.
When asked why he asked that Ginni Thomas' name be kept off the paperwork, Leo told the Post that he was trying to "protect the privacy of Justice Thomas and Ginni.". »
