Clarence Thomas’s Wife Leaves Voice Mail for Anita Hill, FBI Interested

FacebookTwitterRedditDiggStumbleUponTumblrLinkedInPinterestEmailShare

Ginny Thomas, conservative DC activist and founder of  Liberty Central-- which isn't too fond of what Ginny calls the leftist “tyranny” of the Obama administration and Congressional Democrats-- made a phone call.

Liberty Central pays Ginny, by the way. And Liberty Central also accepts large donations from undisclosed sources. But I digress...

This was no ordinary phone call, mind you. This was rather eye-opening.

Mrs. Clarence Thomas called Anita Hill, a former aide to Ginny's husband. Hill had claimed that Ginny's husband "repeatedly made inappropriate sexual comments in the workplace and described several in lurid detail." Of course, then-pre-SCOTUS justice Thomas denied everything and called her accusations a “a high-tech lynching.”

Ginny accused Anita of having a thing for her husband, to which Anita scoffed heartily at the very thought of ANYone having a thing for ol' Clarence.

And now, outta the blue, Ginny wants to talk it out. Call it a gesture of good will... or something:

While Ms. Thomas described the call as an attempt to reach out, the university appeared to be taking the matter more seriously.

Andrew Gully, senior vice president of the Brandeis University communications office, confirmed that Ms. Hill had received the message and that she had turned it over to the campus department of public safety. That office, in turn, passed it on to the F.B.I.

ABC News quoted from the voicemail:

“Good morning, Anita Hill, it's Ginny Thomas,” it quoted from the voicemail. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband. So give it some thought and certainly pray about this and come to understand why you did what you did. Okay have a good day.

Have a good day!

Really?

Stay tuned. I smell a sequel.

Activism of Justice Thomas’s Wife Could Raise Judicial Issues; She Calls Obama "tyrant"

I smell a recusal or twelve. Actually, Justice Thomas should get kicked off the Supreme Court, just for being Justice Thomas.

Yes, that was a mini-commentary, a tiny little rant, a moment of opinion. But that doesn't mean he doesn't have serious issues:

[T]his year [Ginni Thomas] has emerged in her most politically prominent role yet: Mrs. Thomas is the founder and head of a new nonprofit group, Liberty Central, dedicated to opposing what she characterizes as the leftist “tyranny” of President Obama and Democrats in Congress and to “protecting the core founding principles” of the nation.

It is the most partisan role ever for a spouse of a justice on the nation’s highest court, and Mrs. Thomas is just getting started. “Liberty Central will be bigger than the Tea Party movement,” she told Fox News in April, at a Tea Party rally in Atlanta.

Know what else she did? She accepted big fat contributions for Liberty Central... that remain unidentified. See, nonprofit groups like hers don't have to publicly disclose their contributors.

Wanna know more? The Citizens United decision rears its despicable head:

In that [Citizens United] case, Justice Thomas, long an advocate of dismantling campaign finance restrictions, was in the 5-to-4 majority. Wealthy individuals and some corporations, emboldened by the ruling, are giving to such groups to influence the election but still hide their tracks.

See the connection? Smell something fishy?
