GEORGIA — Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas is the target of an ethics examination, investigated by The NY Times, as to whether he misused his “prestige of office” to persuade his friend Harlan Crow to fund a museum in Pin Point, Georgia.

Thomas, who is from Pin Point, introduced residents to Crow, who the Times confirmed is the anonymous donor behind $1.3 million to the museum project set to open this fall.

According to The Huffington Post, this isn’t the first time Crow donated money to projects directly or indirectly honoring Thomas. The Times unraveled a list of gifts and donations given to Thomas, including a $15,000 bust of Abraham Lincoln from a group affiliated with Crow.
