Clarence Thomas’ Wife Has a New Job as a Special Correspondent
Virginia Thomas, the wife of Justice Clarence Thomas, will stay busy despite giving up control of Liberty Central, a website and group for “citizen activists.”
She has a new job as a special correspondent for the Daily Caller, a news website run by conservative commentator Tucker Carlson. She will interview community and political leaders, “with a focus on listening to those outside the Beltway,” according to a press release. TPMDC, the Huffington Post and the New York Times Caucus blog have stories.
Andrew Cohen, the chief legal analyst at the Atlantic, suggests some possible topics for Virginia Thomas in a tongue-in-cheek column.
Cohen would like to see her interview “a legal ethicist or two who disagrees with Justice Thomas’ cramped view of his obligations to recuse himself” based on perceived conflicts of interest. He also suggests she could interview the president of Common Cause, the group that disclosed Justice Thomas’ failure to note all of his wife’s income on financial disclosure forms.
