Must Read from Tierney Sneed: Ginni Thomas, Wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, Discussed Anti-“Voter Fraud” Campaign in Virginia Which Could Have Intimidated Minority Voters

Scoop from Tierney Sneed at Talking Points Memo (you’ve got to read the whole thing):

Ginni Thomas, the conservative activist and wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, wanted to “target” the “most questionable” precincts in Virginia with an anti-voter fraud campaign, according to an October 2016 email exchange she had with a prominent voter fraud alarmist and other conservative activists.

The emails were made public Friday in the litigation over a sensational report released by the group of the alarmist, J. Christian Adams, who also served on President Trump’s short-lived voter fraud commission.

Even Adams was skeptical of the idea — which was also being pushed by a conservative media consultant, Demos Chrissos — but not necessarily because he thought it would cross into the realm of illegal voter intimidation.

“It is possible to do without violating federal law if done correctly,” Adams wrote. “It is NOT possible to do without unleashing a leftist whirlwind that will be designed to boomerang on us and will JUICE leftwing turnout but [sic] threatening voter suppression (a made up term with no basis in law).”

Also of interest is the involvement of the same PR firm that tried to come up the cockamamie story of an alternative attacker of Dr. Ford during the Brett Kavanaugh hearings.
