Virginia 'Ginni' Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas has announced that she will be joining the staff of The Daily Caller as a special correspondent. Her role will be focused on interviewing politicians and activists from outside the beltway.
Her addition to The Daily Caller is sure to bring about renewed calls for Clarence Thomas to recuse himself from politically heated court cases, such as the on-going challenge to Obamacare. A quick look at The Daily Caller's website shows a pretty obvious political leaning, and it's not hard to tell why. The site was founded by Fox News pundit Tucker Carlson, and Neil Patel, a former adviser to Dick Cheney.
Virginia Thomas has long been politically active and outspoken, defending her actions by saying: "I did not give up my First Amendment rights when my husband became a justice of the Supreme Court"
True. But, the rest of us likewise did not give up our right to a judiciary free from bias when you decided to get involved in politics.
