Mrs. Clarence Thomas "stepping down" as Tea Party chief
Wife of the SCOTUS justice, Ginni Thomas announced today she is going undercover.
Ms. Thomas plans to resign as CEO of Liberty Central, a group designed to be a clearinghouse for conservative activists and the Tea Party movement, according to a person with knowledge of the group’s plans.And by taking a "back seat" I assume they mean she's done her job. She rallied the base and got them to the ballot box and now she no longer needs to grub around with the hoi polloi at Tea Party rallies. She can resume her more refined deal making with the big money elites in the back rooms as they plot their government takeover for 2012.
The Washington Post this morning quoted a spokeswoman for the group as saying that Ms. Thomas will take a “a back seat so that Liberty Central can continue with its mission without any of the distractions.” The spokeswoman, Caitlin Carroll, told the Post that “after discussing it with the board, Mrs. Thomas determined that it was best for the organization.”
