    I know, ancient news.
    https://www.dailywire.com/news/5185/6-pieces-evidence-anita-hill-was-lying-amanda-prestigiacomo

    But during the Kavanaugh hearing, someone tried to ask him if he believed Anita Hill or not but ran out of time before an answer could be given.

    It still matters to many on the left.

    At the time, most of the American people did not believe her.

    To me, the first of these 6 reasons is the most interesting:
    "1. A witness said she was told details about the supposed sexual harassment while the two were living in Washington, except this witness was not living in Washington when Hill worked for Thomas.

    The witness supposedly corroborating Hills’ allegations had moved out of Washington before Hill even began working for Thomas. How could she have possibly been told about the harassment before it happened?"

    That witness was the only person to corroborate the story. I've also read that Anita MAY have been working for Thomas at that time, but the time appears to be well before even Anita claimed the alleged abuse started.

    Question: Does anyone know who she worked for before Thomas? I'm not finding it and wonder if it was a man, and has he ever had to settle or been convicted of similar charges. Your advice is appreciated.

    Clarence Thomas is still a piece of crap with no compunction from not recusing with clear conflicts of interest. Like most wingers, ethics only matter across the aile. Personal ethics are to be avided at all costs. Very Randian. A scumbag, period, yet he's on the Scotus.

    And yeah ancient news you're probably wrong about anyway, who cares by now? I certainly didn't have time to read that novel. A quick skim was enough to take in the idiot, er I mean "bullet" points of it. I give it a D-, I mean it got me here and to skim it, so there's that.

    As I wrote, Kavanaugh was asked about it. It still matters. We didn't believe her then. Were we wrong or not? If we were right, it supports opposition to "listen and believe". Still trying to find out about Anita's employer before Thomas.

    IDK It's been so long. I wouldn't even have a problem with Thomas if not for the damn conflicts. I don't recall the details, but I recall reading about such things more than once.

    It seems to me like water under the bridge.

    It was, in a way, the birth of the "Me too" movement. It is being used by that movement to show how pervasive the matter is. I can believe it may not be brought up again as I do think there are enough true and recent allegations to cover that we don't need to go back to this. I guess we can review further if someone does bring it up again, as was done in the Kavanaugh hearings but maybe this really was a one time thing.

    EDIT: Ooops. Tangentially, it is still being discussed https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/weather/joe-biden-addresses-his-call-with-anita-hill/vi-BBWkrAn

    She says she is not satisfied with his apology.

    Then why is Biden begging on his knees for Hill to give him absolution?

    A question I hope some reporter ask Biden.

    "You say you wish you would have treated Hill 'better' during the hearings. How exactly would that have manifested itself? Better in what way?"

    All of the Biden Haters, from the Bernie Bros. to the Progressive Purists are all over the Anita Hill thing trying to slam Biden.

    Anita Hill is irrelevant, except to the Biden Haters in the Dem Party.

    Being as that's a preposterously dishonest statement, there is no answer.

    He did and she flat turned him down. How self servingly disingenuous he waits until now to go crawling.

    If she is irrelevent why did he go begging for her forgiveness when he didn't need it.
    Why was she just "honored" here?

    She was lying, and sadly used as a prop by the DNC, much like Dr. Ford. The Dems used them both and tossed them aside when they were done.....

    Any idea who she worked for before Clarence? Because her one corroborating witness, (Susan Hoenetker [spelling]) appears to have shown she was actually irked by someone before Clarence. It was not him.

    Of course she was lying.

    It’s the Democratic M.O.; come up with unverifiable, unbelievable, and disgraceful accusations at the last minute to derail a Republican nomination.

    She never thought her name would even be known let alone she would have to make a sworn accusation in public. Just like Ford against Kavenaugh.
