Several Republican members of Congress are calling on Attorney General Eric Holder to investigate possible "threats" against conservative Supreme Court justices, claiming the advocacy group Common Cause is providing a platform for inflammatory rhetoric.

The congressmen, in a draft letter to Holder that has not yet been sent, allege that rallies held by the organization appear to "incite violence and encourage racial slurs," with Justice Antonin Scalia, Justice Clarence Thomas and his wife Virginia being the targets.

What Are Protestors calling Scalia?

Specifics aren't given in regards to Scalia.


The rally was described in a Feb. 3 Wall Street Journal story, which detailed the contents of a video shot for a conservative website at a Common Cause rally. The videographer asked individuals in the crowd what should be done with Thomas and Scalia. After some coaxing by the videographer, those shown in the tape used violent or racially charged language in response.
