Ginni Thomas Steps Down From Liberty Central

Ginni Thomas, wife of Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, has stepped down from Liberty Central, the group dedicated to training Tea Party activists. Too little, too late.

This doesn't surprise me, nor do I think it has much to do with her inappropriate telephone call to Anita Hill. I think you will see many of these groups merge with the more mainstream groups now that the midterms are over.

Washington Post reports:

"She'll take a back seat so that Liberty Central can continue with its mission without any of the distractions," Carroll said. "After discussing it with the board, Mrs. Thomas determined that it was best for the organization."

Carroll declined to elaborate, but a source not authorized to speak publicly about the details said Liberty Central would be merging with the Patrick Henry Center, a Manassas-based conservative organization founded by Gary Aldrich, the former FBI agent who wrote a tell-all book about life inside the Clinton White House.

It served its purpose, and now will be folded back to the larger group. By merging with the Patrick Henry Center, it will also avoid any ongoing conflicts with regard to funding and disclosure. Big surprise there. Mrs. Thomas, I'm sure, will continue her crusade for Tea Party principles and subversion of the independence of the US judiciary.
