Clarence Thomas’s Wife Will Go Away Now

by Liz Colville

Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, recently announced that she’s stepping down from her position as head of Liberty Central, a conservative Tea Party-type situation that she founded, presumably because of her strange recent decision to ask Anita Hill for an apology for accusing her husband of sexual harassment during his Supreme Court nomination hearings 19 years ago, though she won’t admit a strong connection between the stupid decision and the smart one. Thomas says she will still be working with the organization, but admits that calling Hill so very, very long after she probably didn’t do anything wrong “was probably a mistake,” and that if it’s in the best interest of her husband’s career [and America] to shush, shush she shall. [Via]
