Judicial activist directed fees to Clarence Thomas’s wife, urged ‘no mention of Ginni’

May 06, 2023

The same year, the nonprofit, the Judicial Education Project, filed a brief to the Supreme Court in a landmark voting rights case. He emphasized that the paperwork should have “No mention of Ginni, of course.”Conway’s firm, the Polling Company, sent the Judicial Education Project a $25,000 bill that day. Ginni Thomas, a political activist and former GOP aide on Capitol Hill, has long maintained that she and her husband keep their careers separate. Thomas’s opinion, which was consistent with a previous opinion he wrote, favored the outcome the Judicial Education Project and several other conservative organizations had advocated in their amicus briefs. The Judicial Education Project spent $150,000 on “polling” that year, according to its tax filing.
