Countdown reports: “Rep. Louise Slaughter (D-NY) explores the failure of Justice Clarence Thomas to disclose that his wife made millions of dollars from clients whose cases were decided by the Supreme Court.”

Tonight, Rep. Slaughter revealed on “Countdown” with Keith Olbermann that she’s exploring “retroactive recusal” in cases like Citizens United, which would nullify Thomas’ vote and overturn the ruling.

“There is such a thing as a retroactive recusal, we’re looking into that. That case (Citizens United), if you remember, was decided 5-4. If we could take away his vote, we can wipe that out. It would lose,” Slaughter explained.
