The Georgia state Senate voted yesterday to create a monument to honor Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, who is a native of the state.
The measure to honor Thomas now heads to the state House after it passed 32 to 21 in the state Senate. If approved, the monument, which will be paid for via private donations, will be on display in the state Capitol.
Some lawmakers said the statute should wait until Justice Thomas retires or has passed away. But said State Sen. Ben Watson, a Republican from Savannah who co-sponsored the bill for Thomas, said a statue already exists for former President Jimmy Carter, who is still alive.
“I didn’t agree with everything that President Carter did. He is a great Georgian and a president we should be proud of,” Watson said. “I would hope that you would feel the same way about Justice Thomas. He is a wonderful person.”
Thomas was born in Pin Point, Georgia and grew up in Savannah and he became the second black Supreme Court justice when resident George H.W. Bush nominated him in 1991.
