GOP megadonor Harlan Crow has paid the tuition of Clarence Thomas's grandson to a private boarding-school. This is a tough question. Should the Justice have declared it as a present? The Justice might have thought that the tuition paid for his grandson was not a personal gift because it was for him. A close friend of the donor could have been argued to be the reason he reported the gift. It is ultimately up to the Justice whether or not to report it.
