[Ed. – The story did sound awfully convenient to me — like a plant to get out the Democratic vote. Seriously: “retiring right after the November election”? We were supposed to believe that kind of itch-scratching rumor had a legitimate basis?]
Ginnie Thomas, wife of Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas, took to Facebook to shoot down rumors of her husband’s retirement.
The story of a possible Thomas retirement began with a Washington Examiner article, now edited to reflect Mrs. Thomas’s statement. The article author, Paul Bedard, claimed that “court watchers” believed that Thomas would leave the bench after the presidential election.
For all those contacting me about the possibility of my husband retiring, I say — unsubscribe from those false news sources and carry on with your busy lives.” …
“It is bogus,” Gini Thomas wrote in all capital letters on her post before calling out the reporter by name.
