Video: Justice Clarence Thomas admits Supreme Court Evading Eligibility Issue

The excerpt and video are from a House subcommittee hearing Thursday. The exchange is between Subcommittee Chairman Rep. Jose Serrano (D-NY) and U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. Thomas seems to admit the Supreme Court is evading the eligibility issue. There is nervous laughter from the crowd.

From WND:
"I'm still waiting for the [court decision] on whether or not a Puerto Rican can run for president of the United States," said Serrano...

"Oh really?" asked Serrano. "So you haven't answered the one about whether I can serve as president, but you answer this one?"

"We're evading that one," answered Thomas, referring to questions of presidential eligibility and prompting laughter in the chamber. "We're giving you another option."
