3Chics weighs in on this nonsense and keep our eyes on the prize for the upcoming elections. Because y’all know IT IS ALL ABOUT THESE UPCOMING ELECTIONS.
GINNY THOMAS IS TRYING TO DISTRACT FROM HER AND HER HUSBAND’S CAMPAIGN FINANCE SHENANIGANS
Clarence Thomas’ Wife May Have Benefitted from His Vote on Campaign Financing
By involving himself in the decision to throw out campaign contributions limits for corporations and unions, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas helped expand fundraising opportunities for his wife’s new political organization.
Eight of the justices did agree that Congress can require corporations to disclose their spending and to run disclaimers with their advertisements, at least in the absence of proof of threats or reprisals. “Disclosure permits citizens and shareholders to react to the speech of corporate entities in a proper way,” Justice Kennedy wrote. Justice Clarence Thomas dissented on this point.
How much y’all wanna bet old Unca Clarence will be a NO show at the 2011 State of the Union Address, right along with Justice Sam Alito.
And now for the old bait, switch, DISTRACT game:
Virgina Thomas calls Anita Hill at 7:30 a.m. at Ms. Hill’s work place, a university and leaves her a voice message requesting she apologize for acts Clarence Thomas did to Ms. Hill in 1991.
Now 3Chics knows Anita Hill will HANDLE her business. This blatant act of a Supreme court judge’s wife calling a former witness against her husband is anything but “reaching out.” It’s pure intimidation tactics, Virginia Thomas. You ain’t slick.
Take a look at this woman’s statement:
“Justice Thomas’s wife reaches out to Anita Hill” *No, bitches, it’s called harassment.
WASHINGTON — Virginia Thomas, the wife of Associate Justice Clarence Thomas of the Supreme Court, left a message last weekend on the voice mail of Anita Hill, who accused her husband of sexual harassment during his confirmation hearings, a spokeswoman for Ms. Thomas confirmed on Tuesday.
In a message left at the office of Ms. Hill, who is now a professor at Brandeis University, Ms. Thomas apparently brought up Ms. Hill’s accusations against her husband during the 1991 hearings.
The full voicemail: “Good morning, Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas,” she said, according to ABC. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband.
So give it some thought and certainly pray about this and come to understand why you did what you did. Okay have a good day.” (Have a good day? the tone of this statement alone begs indignation and anger) She really wants Anita Hill to get angry and choke-a-bitch doesn’t she? That was the whole point. She wanted to cause controversy citing the angry black woman was mean to her.
Hill, however, did indeed seem to take offense, telling ABC: “Even if it wasn’t a prank, it was in no way conciliatory for her to begin with the presumption that I did something wrong in 1991. I simply testified to the truth of my experience. For her to say otherwise is not extending an olive branch, it’s accusatory. (Reliving this painful experience again, had to be excruciating for Anita Hill.) Evil knows no bounds….. The Thomas’ are without shame!
I don’t apologize. I have no intention of apologizing and I stand by my testimony in 1991.”
Andrew Gully, senior vice president of the Brandeis University Communications office, told the Times that Hill had turned the message over to the campus Department of Public Safety Monday – and that office, in turn, passed it to the FBI.
In response to questions about the call relayed through a publicist, Ms. Thomas confirmed that she had left a message on Ms. Hill’s voice mail.
“I did place a call to Ms. Hill at her office extending an olive branch to her after all these years, in hopes that we could ultimately get past what happened so long ago,” Ms. Thomas said in a statement provided to The New York Times. (It is YOU, Ginny Thomas that hasn’t gotten over your negro husband lusting after a Black woman.)
“That offer still stands,” her statement went on. “I would be very happy to meet and talk with her if she would be willing to do the same. Certainly no offense was ever intended.” ( LIAR! This white privileged Beckie really thinks Anita Hill would give her the fucking time of day?) Of course not, and she knew it. Her whole purpose for the call was to intimidate and shame Ms. Hill, stirring up old, ugly wounds from decades ago.
Was this Tea Party matron going to serve Anita Hill some tea on her best china? Hell NO! This woman personifies the slimy side of the teabaggers. The hateful, frightened white folks who think they’re the shit.
I’m sure Ginny Thomas wants to “take her husband back” Why the very thought of Michelle Obama in the White House with the black president and husband conjures up the deepest nightmares of her slimy husband lusting after Anita Hill 19 years ago.
Anita Hill had every right to call the FBI on this bitch. Virginia Thomas needs to be grilled, and made to pay for her actions. Now Virginia Thomas’ name will be on the record for making that phone call. She’s married to a judge and knew exactly what to say, and how far she could go with that call.
3Chics is not fooled, and you’re not slick Ginny Thomas. You pulled this stunt to DISTRACT from your shady dealings . Shame on you, for harassing Anita Hill in your scheming financial escapades.
Folks, keep an eye out for Citizens United dealings. The Supreme Court ruled in their favor, and there is clearly a conflict of interest with her husband as a sitting justice voting in favor of Citizens United.
That’s my story for now. Let’s stay focused, folks! VOTE!
Clarence Thomas’s Ex-Girlfriend Reveals Lurid Details
In the wake of news that Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, recently contacted Anita Hill, the woman behind a sexual harassment scandal that almost derailed the Justice during his confirmation hearings, Thomas’s ex-girlfriend is now seeking to enter the fray with serious new allegations about his demeanor in the years before the Hill controversy. In an interview with the Washington Post, Lillian McEwen says Hill’s allegations fit a pattern:
“He was always actively watching the women he worked with to see if they could be potential partners,” McEwen told the Post, adding that he was particularly “partial to women with large breasts” and even would ask woman about their bra size.
“He was obsessed with porn,” McEwen also said of Thomas, a claim that is particularly relevant to Hill’s allegations that the then-chairman of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission had repeatedly relayed scenes from pornographic movies to her. “He would talk about what he had seen in magazines and films, if there was something worth noting,” McEwen continued.
As for why McEwen has decided to break her silence now, the Post explains that the woman who partook in Thomas’s “freewheeling sex life” between 1981 and 1986 has a story to tell.
She has written a memoir, which she is now shopping to publishers. News broke that the justice’s wife, Virginia Thomas, left a voice mail on Hill’s office phone at Brandeis University, seeking an apology — a request that Hill declined in a statement. After that, McEwen changed her mind and decided to talk about her relationship with Thomas.
FLASHBACK: The ‘Other Woman’ Of The Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas Debacle
Before Virginia Thomas, there was Anita Hill and Clarence Thomas — and Angela Wright (who?)
Angela Wright heard Anita Hill and thought, “I believe her because he did it to me.” Her testimony might have changed history. She was subpoenaed. Why wasn’t she called?
When Virginia Thomas left a message on Anita Hill’s voice mail on Columbus Day weekend October 9, 2010, she reopened what many remember as a “he said/she said” debate about sexual harassment. But it could have been “he said/they said.” On Columbus Day weekend in October 1991 — 19 years ago — another witness was waiting to testify. She could help corroborate Hill’s testimony in Clarence Thomas’s Senate Judiciary Committee’s Supreme Court nomination confirmation hearings. But Angela Wright was never called to testify.
What would she have said — and why wasn’t she called to testify?
Justices Scalia And Thomas’s Attendance At Koch Event Sparks Judicial Ethics Debate
Reports that two Supreme Court Justices have attended seminars sponsored by the energy giant and conservative bankroller Koch Industries has sparked a mild debate over judicial ethics.
On Tuesday evening, the New York Times reported that an upcoming meeting in Palm Springs of “a secretive network of Republican donors” that was being organized by Koch Industries, “the longtime underwriter of libertarian causes.” Buried in the third to last graph was a note that previous guests at such meetings included Supreme Court Justices Antonin Scalia and Clarence Thomas, two of the more conservative members of the bench.
It’s not rare for a Justice to attend a seminar sponsored by a group with judicial or political interests. Members of the court, for instances, often speak at academic institutions or think tanks. Virtually all companies, meanwhile, are affected by the judicial branch. So long as Scalia and Thomas did not participate in overt partisan activities, there would be no apparent conflict of interest.
“There is nothing to prevent Supreme Court justices from hanging out with people who have political philosophies,” said Steven Lubet, a professor of law at Northwestern University who teaches courses on Legal Ethics.
But the Koch event appears more political than, say, the Aspen Ideas festival. In its own invitation, it was described as a “twice a year” gathering “to review strategies for combating the multitude of public policies that threaten to destroy America as we know it.” In addition, it’s not entirely clear what the two Justices did at the Koch event. A copy of the invitation that served as the basis for the Times’s report was posted by the liberal blog Think Progress. It provided no additional clues. A call to the Supreme Court and an email to a Koch Industries spokesperson meanwhile were not immediately returned.
this would be a problem for them IF they had any ethics.
I say they don’t have any ethics, so why be surprised?
none, nada, zilch, zero!
Anita Hill wasn’t interested in Clarence Thomas nasty looking self. (pardon me while I gag) Ginny Thomas need to confront her husband and ask him to come clean & Ginny need to deal with her own insecurities. Anita Hill has more class and dignity than the Thomas’ could ever imagine. Both of the Thomas’ are lowclass conniving harassers!
Anita Hill’s Testimony Part 1
Anita Hill’s Opening Statement Part 1
“But Lillian McEwen, a former Senate Judiciary Committee lawyer who said she dated Clarence Thomas from 1979 through the mid-1980s, told The Washington Post in an interview that Hill’s long-ago description of Thomas’s behavior resonated with her.
“The Clarence I know was certainly capable not only of doing the things that Anita Hill said he did, but it would be totally consistent with the way he lived his personal life then,” said McEwen, who is writing her own memoir but has never before publicly discussed her relationship with Clarence Thomas.
McEwen also told the Post she was not surprised that Virginia Thomas would leave Hill a message, even after all these years. ”
McEwen also told the Post she was not surprised that Virginia Thomas would leave Hill a message, even after all these years. ”
What does she know about Virgina Thomas?
LMAO at Snob’s column..
well, in particular, the pic she chose for Anita Hill.
did she pick any number of pics with Hill in professor-like garb?
she all but said….this is what good living can do for you.
now google Ginny Thomas….the years have not been as kind to her.
BWA HA HA HA HA HA
BWA HA HA Anita Hill was and still is an attractive Black woman.
Gurrlllllllllll, Black don’t crack!
BWA HA HA HA HA
Anita Hill is very attractive. Black don’t crack!
Okay so here’s a theory that might make sense of Ginny’s actions that I stumbled upon. Miss Ginny WAS trying to be a rising star among the Teabbaggers. She started obsessing over how the Anita Hill scenario surrounding Unca Clarence would play into her rise and she needed to do something to get ahead of it. So, in her head she decided that if Hill would come forth and make her apology for LYING ON HER HUSBAND that her way would be cleared to rise above her disgraced husband and make a name on her own. So she jots down a few words and decided to leave it on Hill work voice mail. Cause after 20 years, she oughtta be ready to stand by Ginny so she can have her own selfish way and gains. Of course Hill would talk to her and want to meet with her because of course this hank needed to clear her path and of course this lowly Brandeis teacher would go along with it. NOT, NOT, NOT…the ish hit the fan and backfired. Go home and sit choo trifling azz down Miss Ginny.
BWA HA HA HA
VirginiaThomas, like Sarah Palin is another grifter, loser, “give it to me, because i’m white and entitled to it” Teabagger. There isn’t enough Brillo pads in the galaxy for this woman to clean up that debacle.
Oh, what a trifling bish!
Eric Holder needs to focus on Ginny Thomas’ holdings and where they come from and track Unca Clarences votes. If they impeached Thomas who would care? Not one black person would say a word, not one. We would just be a bit scared that his replacement might not be AA nor get confirmed. But it wouldnt be a loss is he werent on the SCOTUS.

This was a strange series of events. Mrs. Thomas asks for an apology in her message ( one that has been aired for all to hear). . . ok . . . . So what does Anita Hill do? She calls the Brandeis University Police. That should tell you about the mental stability of Professor Hill. Amazingly the Brandeis University Police call the FBI. . . . Are you kidding me?
I do not believe that the viewing public respected Anita Hill during the Thomas confirmation hearings, nor do they respect her now. Her present actions surely lower my low opinion of her.
For this stunt she should lose her position on the faculty at Brandeis. She has sulllied the reputation of the University. Beyond that I think she needs psychiatric care.
Yepper! I went and countered that BS that’s the game these crackas play. Trying to make the black woman the crazy… Virginia Thomas really does not want folks to focus on her financial dealings, huh?
I feel ya Ametia, my fingers are blogged out about this today…aint gonna let Miss Ginny get away with this one at the expense of Anita Hill. She just called on the wrong woman and will regret doing so.
Abajournal scrubbed my comments. But I went back and wrote:

Well, my comments got scrubbed but I’m still thinking it!
Nanny Nanny Boo Boo!
Go jump off a cliff, ass clown! The psycho is Ginny Thomas calling & harassing a woman on her job. That’s the psycho mofo!
For whatever reason Miss Ginny did THIS she has brought the attention straight to herself now. The FBI don’t play. Whether the Lying Thomases disclose where their monies are coming from, the FBI doesn’t have to ask permission to find out. Eric Holder do your due diligence. Follow the money to see exactly WHO is syphoning money to the Thomases. But why drag Anita into this again; in no was even in 2010, as we’ve regressed, with America EVER blame Anita Hill. Womens groups wont and neither will America as long as Thomas is a black man. So, she must have forgotten what color he was when she hatched this plot. Yall are right, in her head there “was” some white entitlement. Right about now, Miss Ginny has to be rethinking this failed plot. She must have been off her meds, yeah that explains it.
Re Anita Hill…I feel soo close to her because we are the exact same age. (Now ya know.) To be exact, I am a month and a half older than Anita. When she was SUPENOEAD to testify, my generation and all of America watched every word, every reaction during this case. It was one of the very first Reality TV Programs. Everyone new Hill was telling the truth, even those harrassers who didn’t want it to be knew she was telling the truth. Anita Hill changed to course, dialogue and laws regarding sexual harrassment in this country. We thank her for that. Now, for this woman to revisit this issue is ludacris. Its unbelievable, unfathomable that she would not only bring it up, but asked for a unfounded, dumbfounded apology. Why?
Did y’all see Ben Smith’s headline @ Politico? In a remarkable exchange? Why do they close their eyes to the shenanigans of white folks? If Anita Hill would have called Ginny Thomas, the headline would have had the word “harassment” in it.
she’s not slick. I’m telling you folks, ths is why disclosure is very important. As long as the money is accounted for, we can grumble, but at least we know where it’s coming from. she’s trucking towards a million bucks from ANONYMOUS donors?
All of this. and Fuck that! Yeah, I said it.
All the money in the world is not worth the re-hashing of this confirmation showdown. This just makes Ginny look crazy…maybe she was drunk at 7:30 in the morning. Nobody in their right mind would bring this on themselves ever again. Nobody likes Clarence Thomas for it and now no one will respect Ginny. Also, young people will become aware of the case and realize what a nasty dog Clarence Thomas is. No matter of money is worth the wrath Ginny will get from this. SHE WAS DRUNK!
Sounds like a personal problem to me.
Making a call @ 7:30 in the morning? After what, 20 or so years? The bitch wasn’t drunk. There is a motive somewhere behind this bitchassness. What is it? Is it to distract? If so, what? Could it be to distract from their financial ties to Citizens United? Or is it to distract & anger African American women to take their eyes off the upcoming elections?
THIS crosses the line for even insecure white women…unbelievably embarrassing. After giving this more thought, Unca Clarence is battering Miss Ginny on the homefront I DO BELIEVE. Something just aint right for her to come at Anita Hill like this at 7:30 in the damn morning; 20 years later at 7:30 in the damn morning she called her… had she slept or what had Unca Clarence said to her all night long; call in adult protective service. Crazy!!!
“I did place a call to Ms. Hill at her office extending an olive branch to her after all these years, in hopes that we could ultimately get passed (sic) what happened so long ago. That offer still stands, I would be very happy to meet and talk with her if she would be willing to do the same,” Thomas said.
Now the only person that needs to get passed what happened is Miss Ginny; WE does not include Anita here (WE must be Clarence and Ginny). And the only person Ginny needs to meet with is a psychiatrist because that’s what they do – help “stuck” people move on 20 years later.
DEFEND CHANGE = VOTE AGAINST THE GINNYS OF THE WORLD NOV 2!!
Ginni Thomas seeks Hill apology, in vain
In a remarkable exchange, Ginni Thomas, wife of Clarence, left Anita Hill a voicemail asking for an apology for Hill’s testimony — which she’s never recanted — that the future Supreme Court justice acted inappropriately as her boss.
“Good morning, Anita Hill, it’s Ginni Thomas,” said the voicemail, according to ABC News, “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband. So give it some thought and certainly pray about this and come to understand why you did what you did. Okay have a good day.”
Hill told ABC:
Even if it wasn’t a prank, it was in no way conciliatory for her to begin with the presumption that I did something wrong in 1991. I simply testified to the truth of my experience. For her to say otherwise is not extending an olive branch, it’s accusatory.
I don’t apologize. I have no intention of apologizing and I stand by my testimony in 1991.”
The Thomas confirmation hearings divided the country, an early episode that widened the partisan cultural rift at play today. Two decades on, this one hasn’t healed.
In a remarkable exchange? In vain? Mutha..
Just you watch. Palin will get in on this. It’s a trick to anger African American women & to distract. The stage has been set! That Wasilla hillbilly is going to tweet about it to stir some sh*t up! This is their plan to distract.
nobody will be distracted. Black women will be ‘OH HELL NO…even if I had a semi-thought of not voting…bump that..where’s the polling place and let me call up 10 Sistas to take them too.’
There you go!
Someone @ HP wrote that Anita Hill should go get a restraining order immediately…and file charges against Ginny Thomas for witness tampering and harassment.
Trust, that bitch Ginny Thomas won’t be making any more calls to Anita Hill.
“That offer still stands,” her statement went on. “I would be very happy to meet and talk with her if she would be willing to do the same. Certainly no offense was ever intended.”
What a lying bitch! This mofo got her nerves! Ginny thinks she can downplay her harassment of Anita Hill and get away with it. The call was about harassment & intimidation. I wanna see what’s gonna happen. Clarence Thomas need to resign immediately!
These two clowns need to be investigated for their financial ties to Citizens United. Don’t count on cable stations to cover this with any vigor. Remember these mofos did a complete blackout of President Obama’s Ohio rally. The President…. So you know who controls the boob tubes.
NightLine asked its viewers to go to its website/FB page tonight and answer the question:
“DO YOU BELIEVE ANITA HILL”
Ya know, Anita Hill didn’t ask for this 20 year old mess to be re-tried in the court of public opinion. America watched to Clarence Thomas confirmation hearing and unequivocably believed Anita Hill was telling the truth. Fast forward 20 years later, with Teabagger mentality, watch Sarah Pallin come out and support Miss Ginny. After years of women coming forward with sexual harrassment cases as a result of The Anita Hill testimony, conservative teabaggers are trying to set this coutry back. But this one is going to backfire because as much as the teabaggers would like to go after Anita Hill, Clarence Thomas is still a black man in America and they will not back off of him. Yes, the black man did it. Why even have ask this question 20 years later. Your mess is gonna backfire Miss Ginny.
What? Bringing this up again after 20 years? GTFOOH! If it had been dealt with 20 years ago, Clarence Thomas would not be sitting on the Supreme Court. Ain’t this a mofo?
Oh now those fuckers on Nightline DID.NOT. issue a questionaire on Anita Hill..
I keep telling folks it is the media. They are all bought and paid for by corporations that benefitted from Citizens United. The Tea Party is bought and paid for by Ciitzens United. The Supreme Court ruled in CN’s favor.
I don’t have it twisted. The question is DO YOU BELIEVE GINNY THOMAS WAS GENUINE IN HER OUT REACH TO ANITA HILL, A WOMAN WHO TESTIFIED AGAINST HER HUSBAND 20 YEARS AGO.
Nope that’s not the question. They , the media with the help of the Thomas’ want to distract you, get us all worked up and angry about Anita getting harassed. Look who is doing the harassing and why.
Anita Hill will take care of her enemies. We can help her by voting and keeping these fuckers off the SCOTUS and out of congress.
ROCK THE VOTE!
Defend Change…Vote November 2…Defeat Miss Ginny!!
Where is cable news with this story? *************CRICKETS**************** Citizens United’s got the media on lockdown for sure. And Unca Clarence is complicit
