The Right-Wing just cannot help themselves as frothing, FROTHING, over Anna Diggs Taylor being on the board of an organization which gave money to the ACLU.

How dare she have such an indirect conflict of interest! Even if it isn't!

Granted it isn't nearly as bad as these conflicts, which are not considered conflicts of interest:

A Supreme Court justice's son working for the firm representing the guy who ultimately prevails before the Supreme Court over a contested election (with his Dad voting in the majority) and then gets himself appointed to the No. 3 job at the Department of Labor.

Or another Supreme Court justice's wife working for the potential "transitition team" which will pick the members of the new administration -- which occurs after her husband the Supreme Court justice sides with her "team".

Or, your hunting buddy has a case coming before the Supreme Court, but you can simply say you have no conflict...quack quack quack.
