Clarence Thomas' wife attacked by Washington Post for daring to earn a living

A new Washington Post article attacked Ginni Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, over work she performed as a consultant more than a decade ago.

The criticisms argued that the work was somehow unethical due to her name not being listed in the billing paperwork, according to the article.

The Work

"In all, according to the documents, the Polling Company paid Thomas’s firm, Liberty Consulting, $80,000 between June 2011 and June 2012, and it expected to pay $20,000 more before the end of 2012," the Post wrote.

"The documents reviewed by The Post do not indicate the precise nature of any work Thomas did for the Judicial Education Project or the Polling Company," it added.

The Controversy

"It comes after it emerged that a billionaire Republican donor paid private school fees for a child that the Thomases treated like a son,” the Daily Mail wrote.

"The latest questions involve Leo, who is a key figure in a network of groups that support the nominations of conservative judges," it added.

The latest report led California Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu to call on Thomas to resign from the Supreme Court.

"Justice Clarence Thomas and Ginni Thomas have brought shame to themselves and the Supreme Court of the United States with their corrupt, hidden acceptance of payments and gifts," he tweeted.

"Justice Thomas should resign," he concluded, including a link to the Post article.

The controversy adds to accusations that GOP donor Harlan Crow paid thousands of dollars in tuition for a boarding school for the great-nephew of Thomas.

“Today’s report continues a steady stream of revelations calling Justices’ ethics standards and practices into question. I hope that the Chief Justice understands that something must be done—the reputation and credibility of the Court is at stake,” Senate Judiciary Committee Chair Dick Durbin (D-IL.) said in a statement.

“I don’t think an impeachment is in the works, particularly with the House in a political situation that it’s in today,” Durbin said on “The Briefing with Steve Scully.”

No comment yet from Thomas, but it's safe to say that the left, including the Washington Post, is focused on discrediting the conservative justice through the latest online report.
