Virginia “Ginni” Thomas, the wife of Associate Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, pushed 29 Arizona state lawmakers to discard Joe Biden’s victory in the state and “choose” their own voters in place, The Washington Post reported.
The alleged Ms. Thomas emailed 27 more state lawmakers than the Job originally reported last month. Ms Thomas, herself a prominent Tory activist, sent the messages using FreeRoots, an online platform that allows people to send pre-written emails to multiple elected officials.
Ms. Thomas reportedly sent emails to 20 Republicans in the Arizona House and seven in her Senate. The message urged lawmakers to “stand firm in the face of political and media pressure” and that they had the “power to fight fraud.”
The email said lawmakers could “ensure that a clean list of voters is chosen.”
“Before you choose your state’s voters…think about what will happen to the nation we all love if you don’t rise up and lead,” she said. The email then links to a man who told lawmakers to “fix things” and “not give in to cowardice.”
The recently leaked emails from Ms Thomas are the latest in a series of revelations that show how the wife of the longest-serving Supreme Court justice tried to overturn the results of the 2020 presidential election. Earlier this year, SCS News and the Job reported that she pressured White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows to undertake efforts to overturn the election results.
In the end, the Arizona legislature voted to certify Mr. Biden’s victory.
The Independent has contacted Ms. Thomas for comment.
