Biden colluded in blaming the victim in this historic sexual harassment case made against Clarence Thomas by civil rights lawyer and activist, Anita Hill, implying she was a ‘woman scorned’ seeking revenge with her charges. If the case had been heard post [#MeToo], there would have been a very different outcome and the continuing corruption inside the Supreme Court posed by Thomas and his far-right Trump-supporting wife would have been eliminated early on.
‘According to Hill, Thomas asked her out socially many times during her two years of employment as his assistant, and, after she declined his requests, he used work situations to discuss sexual subjects. “He spoke about … such matters as women having sex with animals and films showing group sex or rape scenes,” she said, adding that on several occasions Thomas graphically described “his own sexual prowess” and the details of his anatomy. Hill also recounted an instance in which Thomas examined a can of Coke on his desk and asked, “Who has put pubic hair on my Coke?” During the hearing, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch implied that “Hill was working in tandem with ‘slick lawyers’ and interest groups bent on destroying Thomas’ chances to join the court.”
