Someone better get up early tomorrow for Ginni’s phone call:
For nearly two decades, Lillian McEwen has been silent — a part of history, yet absent from it.
When Anita Hill accused Clarence Thomas of sexual harassment during his explosive 1991 Supreme Court confirmation hearing, Thomas vehemently denied the allegations and his handlers cited his steady relationship with another woman in an effort to deflect Hill’s allegations.
Lillian McEwen was that woman.***
Given that history, she said Hill’s long-ago description of Thomas’s behavior resonated with her.
“He was obsessed with porn,” she said of Thomas, who is now 63. “He would talk about what he had seen in magazines and films, if there was something worth noting.”
McEwen added that she had no problem with Thomas’s interests, although she found pornography to be “boring.”
According to McEwen, Thomas would also tell her about women he encountered at work. He was partial to women with large breasts, she said. In an instance at work, Thomas was so impressed that he asked one woman her bra size, McEwen recalled him telling her.
And it goes on and on like that. I’m not sure how many women have to come forward with the SAME EXACT story about Clarence Thomas before the lunatics on the right admit Clarence might have been a bit of a perv and serial sexual harasser, but we’re at around a half dozen now. The final quote from McEwen was priceless:
“I have no hostility toward him,” McEwen said. “It is just that he has manufactured a different reality over time. That’s the problem that he has.”
That is pretty much the modern GOP in a nutshell, manufacturing their own reality every day of the week.
As an aside- can you imagine asking a co-worker her breast size? If someone tried that shit with my sister, she would KICK HIS ASS. Girl runs tri-athlons and has guns.
