Clarence Thomas, The wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas said Tuesday he did to Anita Hill, whose accusations of sexual harassment almost derailed Thomas’ Supreme Court nomination 19 years ago.
In a statement to CNN, New York “Ginni” Thomas said, “I made a call to Ms. Hill in her office extends an olive branch to her after all these years, with the hope that ultimately could happen that happened so long ago. That offer still stands, I’d be very happy to meet and talk with her if she would be willing to do the same. Certainly no offense was ever intended. ”
Hill, a law professor at Brandeis University, became the message across campus security, a university spokeswoman.
According to a source of Brandeis, who spoke on condition of anonymity, the message left by the weekend, said:
“Good morning, Anita Hill, is Ginni Thomas. I just wanted to get through the waves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would like you to consider an apology for some time and a full explanation of why he did what he did with my husband. Therefore, to think and certainly pray about it and come to understand why he did what he did. OK, have a good day. ”
Hill, who previously worked for Clarence Thomas, said in 1991 his Senate confirmation hearing that he used inappropriate sexual language around him. The testimony dominated the hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee, which deadlocked on the appointment to send it to the full Senate without a recommendation. The Senate approved the nomination of Thomas by a vote of 52-48.
Charles Radin, director of Brandeis news and communications, said Hill received a voice mail message and turned it over to the campus Public Safety Department, which in turn gave it to the FBI.
“No doubt he thought the call was inappropriate,” Hill said in a statement issued by CNN on Brandeis. “I have no intention of apologizing because he testified truth about my experience and I stand by that testimony.”
Ginni Thomas is a conservative activist who founded the Central Freedom.
