We’ve talked before about problems with Ginny Thomas, wife of Justice Clarence Thomas.
While he’s sitting on the nation’s highest court, pretending to be an honest, objective judge, she’s running a conservative political operation, called Liberty Central – funded by some of the very corporations that may have cases before the court.
That sets up the potential for serious conflicts of interest which members of the court, and their spouses, are supposed to avoid.
Now Ginny Thomas has made things worse. This week, she called Anita Hill with a message: If you’re ready to apologize for what you said about my husband 19 years ago, I’m ready to accept your apology.
Who the hell does she think she is? And how does she know Anita Hill was not telling the truth about her husband’s creepy sexual behavior around the office? At least two other women confirmed her account of his conduct.
Anita Hill owes no apology to Clarence Thomas.
But George H. W. Bush owes America an apology for putting Clarence Thomas on the Supreme Court.
That’s my parting shot for today.
