(Newser) – Ginni Thomas is no fan of the media, but now she's a part of it. Thomas, the wife of Supreme Court justice Clarence Thomas who is a Tea Party activist in her own right, has joined the right-wing site Daily Caller. Her job will be “identifying and interviewing people who might in the future become influential in politics or who are already influential but who you may not know about," site founder Tucker Carlson tells Politico.

“Spouses have a right to have their own lives,” he said, adding that he guessed she wouldn't be comfortable writing about issues before the court.
