Clarence Thomas' Wife Leaves Tea Party Group

Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, has stepped down from the Tea Party group she founded, Liberty Central. "She'll take a back seat so that Liberty Central can continue with its mission without any of the distractions," her spokeswoman tells The Washington Post. Thomas had been in the news for a voicemail she left Anita Hill, asking Hill to apologize for her role in Clarence Thomas' Supreme Court confirmation scandal.
