After channelling the 90s and reminding everyone of how gross that testimony against Clarence Thomas was during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings, Thomas' wife, Virginia "Ginni" Thomas is stepping down from her lead role with the grass roots conservative group she founded in May, Liberty Central.
As you may recall, Ginni, for some reason, decided very early one morning to call the Brandeis office of Anita Hill, her hubby's former employee, and ask her to apologize for possessing a vagina that apparently forced her husband to be as gross as possible around her.
No one thought these actions made any sense. Not. On. Any. Level. Mostly because Thomas is on the Supreme Court -- for life -- and got everything he ever wanted, despite being a pervert. Hill, to her credit, has pretty much moved on from the whole debacle. But Ginni felt like bringing up nearly 20 year old business and now she's decided she's a "celebrity" distraction at her own organization.
From The Washington Post:
"She'll take a back seat so that Liberty Central can continue with its mission without any of the distractions," said spokeswoman Caitlin Carroll of CRC Public Relations in Alexandria. "After discussing it with the board, Mrs. Thomas determined that it was best for the organization."
Liberty Central was founded to provide support and information to conservative activists and Tea Party groups by acting as a "clearinghouse" for what's conservative, "Tea Party" cannon and what's not. Now The Washington Post is reporting that the group may be merging with the Patrick Henry Center.
