      Ginni Thomas

      Virginia Thomas, 54, is a special correspondent for the Daily Caller producing videos of emerging leaders and educators in the public square. Her ear is to the ground outside the Washington Beltway as a social entrepreneur. Previously, she was the founder of LibertyCentral.org (nonprofit for citizen activists), and has worked at The Heritage Foundation, Hillsdale College's Washington office, the U.S. Chamber of Commerce and the senior levels of the legislative and executive branches of government. She has maintained her midwestern authenticity after 30 years in Washington, D.C. and enjoys motor homing and the Nebraska Cornhuskers with her husband, Justice Clarence Thomas. Her degrees are: Business Communication & Political Science from Creighton University, and J.D. from Creighton Law School (Omaha, NE).

Anita Moncrief isn’t your ordinary Republican voter.

During the 2008 election, Moncrief supported Hillary Clinton and then Barack Obama. But now, she speaks to tea party groups, calls President Obama a “socialist” and has come to call herself a “non-liberal.”

She attributes her ideological shift to what she saw and was exposed to as an employee for the Association of Community Organizations for Reform Now, better known by its acronym, ACORN. Moncrief testified against the now defunct organization in 2008 in a lawsuit filed against it by the Pennsylvania Republican Party.

A writer, blogger, activist and mom, Moncrief is affiliated with True the Vote and has been disowned by some of her own family for her newfound beliefs. The Daily Caller’s Ginni Thomas recently spoke with Moncrief about the efforts by the left to divide America along race, class and gender, why the left wants to grow government dependency and the price she has paid for changing her worldview.
