Ginni Thomas’ support of the efforts to overturn former President Donald Trump’s electoral defeat have come under scrutiny given her husband’s participation in a case that was before the Supreme Court concerning the House’s January 6 investigation. There is the potential that he will be involved in other cases related to that investigation.
Justices decide for themselves whether cases present a conflict requiring their recusal. The Supreme Court public information office did not respond to CNN’s inquiry about the latest report.
Twenty members of the Arizona House and seven state senators received identical messages on November 9, 2020, the Post wrote.
Another batch of letters from Thomas — aimed at 22 members of Arizona’s House and one of its state senators, according to the Post — went out on December 13, the day before representatives were set to meet at statehouses across the country to vote to certify their slates of electors. The messages asked the lawmakers that, before they chose the electors, they “consider what will happen to the nation we all love if you do not stand up and lead.”
One of the November form letters from Thomas went to state Rep. Shawnna Bolick, who responded to the message with a suggestion that Thomas file any complaints of fraud to the state attorney general and who posted the exchange on Twitter.
Thomas’ messages were sent via an online platform for sending prewritten messages to lawmakers called FreeRoots, the Post reported.
Ginni Thomas did not comment to the Post and didn’t immediately return a request for comment from CNN.
