Virginia Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, has been hired by The Daily Caller as a reporter.
"We are thrilled to have Ginni Thomas join The Daily Caller as a special correspondent to interview both established and emerging leaders about the serious questions facing our country," said Neil Patel, publisher and CEO of The Daily Caller. "Ginni is always upbeat, she has an unbelievable amount of energy and enthusiasm and she knows our political system as well as anyone in Washington. We could not imagine a better person to take on this role."A longtime Tea Party activist, Thomas' political activities have prompted calls for her husband to recuse himself from some cases.
