Born in Omaha, Nebraska, on February 23, 1957, Virginia “Ginni” Thomas is an American attorney and conservative activist from Omaha, Nebraska.
Her conservative commentary and her activism have made her a controversial person, especially since wives of Supreme Court justices typically stay away from politics.
Thomas started her professional career by working for Rep. Hal Daub. After she graduated from Creighton University School of Law, she worked for the U.S. Chamber of Commerce. She later worked in the U.S. Department of Labor and was an aide to Rep. Dick Armey.
In 2000, she joined The Heritage Foundation, where she served as a White House Liaison between the think tank and the George W. Bush administration.
In 2009, Thomas founded Liberty Central, which is a conservative advocacy non-profit that is associated with The Tea Party movement. In 2010, she founded Liberty Consulting.
Thomas was a supporter of Donald Trump during his presidency, she offered the Trump administration suggestions on who to recruit through her involvement within The Conservative Groundswell group.
After the election in 2020 where Joe Biden was declared the winner, Thomas repeatedly called on the chief of staff for Trump, Mark Meadows, to take steps to overturn the results.
She gave early social media support for the Trump rally, which preceded the 2021 attack at the United States Capitol.
Her support of the rally occurred before the violence took place, and she later apologized for having contributed to a division between the former Clarence Thomas Supreme Court clerks.
