Virginia Thomas says, "I am an ordinary citizen from Omaha, Neb., who just may have the chance to preserve liberty along with you and other people like you,"

She claims to be energized by President Obama's "hard-left agenda."

She's accepting donations from various sources - including corporations - as allowed under campaign finance rules recently loosened and supported by her husband's Supreme Court decision opening the floodgates to groups like this the Citizens United case.

Hey-it's "all in the family" at the Justice Thomas household. And just for the record, Virginia is no ordinary activist. Being the the wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas should test the traditional notions of political impartiality for the court, although for Virginia Thomas this isn't the first time.

In 2000, when her husband's Court accepted George Bush's lawsuit to block the Florida Supreme Court's order that all the votes in the state of Florida be counted - a count done a year later by a newspaper consortium which found that Al Gore actually won more votes in that state - the day after Clarence Thomas blocked the vote count, Virginia Thomas, working at the Heritage Foundation, was sending out emails to vet potential members of the Bush administration. This was weeks before her husband's court illegally decided that Bush had won the election because her husband's court effectively blocked the counting of all the votes in Florida.
