In the Clarence Thomas-Anita Hill scandal, an ex-girlfriend has surfaced who’s talking, according to The Washington Post. The Supreme Court Justice, who was accused of sexually harassing Anita Hill when she worked with him, finds himself in the headlines again after his wife, Virginia Thomas, left Hill a voicemail. In the message, Virginia Thomas requests Anita Hill to publicly apologize for her testimony nearly two decades ago against her husband. Ex-girlfriend, Lillian McEwen, has her own opinions about the scandal that played out in the public eye.
Ex-Girlfriend of Clarence Thomas Talks – Anita Hill Knows the Man She Did
Lillian McEwen came forward and said she wasn’t surprised by Virginia Thomas’ voicemail to Hill. More than anything, she understands Anita Hill’s allegations towards Clarence Thomas.
McEwen is a former Senate Judiciary Committee lawyer dated Clarence Thomas from 1979 through the mid-1980’s. She’s working on a memoir which details her relationship with Thomas. She claims that her experience with Clarence Thomas was more consistent with Anita Hill’s accusations. When the hearings were taking place, it was a national scandal being investigated.
Lillian McEwen said of Thomas, “The Clarence I know was certainly capable not only of doing the things that Anita Hill said he did, but it would be totally consistent with the way he lived his personal life then.”
Clarence Thomas’ wife left Anita Hill a voicemail claiming to “extend an olive branch” by asking her to publicly apologize to her testimony regarding the sexual harassment she suffered by her husband. Anita Hill has refused, saying that she stands by her testimony.
If Virginia Thomas wanted to keep the scandal alive, she’s doing a good job.
