Pervert on the Supreme Court

Lillian McEwen breaks her 19-year silence about Justice Clarence Thomas

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.

“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.”

[…]

Angela Wright, who in 1984 worked as public affairs director at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission — which polices sexual harassment claims — during Thomas’s long tenure as chairman, shared similar accounts with Senate investigators.

Once, when walking into an EEOC seminar with Thomas, he asked her, “What size are your breasts?” according to the transcript of her Senate interview.

Her story was corroborated by a former EEOC speechwriter, who told investigators that Wright had become increasingly uneasy around Thomas because of his comments about her appearance.

There’s a computer science term “garbage in, garbage out” which can now be applied to the SCOTUS. If you put garbage in there to act as the highest justice in the land, all you’re going to get is garbage out in his rulings. And that’s what we have with Clarence Thomas.

  1. Right. Conspiracy. Cover up. Sure. CTs problem was he didn’t toe the acceptable liberal NAALCP line.

  2. Wrong. Mason was convicted of murder. CT was never convicted of anything. I happen to believe in innocent until proven guilty. Heard of that?

  3. Buzzer. Wrong again. So far all I’ve spoken of is who you’ve brought up. Mason accused of a crime and convicted and CT, accused of a crime, never charged and of course never convicted. You really should pay better attention and not rush to liberal reductionism.

  4. Clarence Thomas wasn’t really accused of a crime, he was accused of acting inappropriately and of sexual harassment. This isn’t a black and white issue, an issue of guilt or innocence. I think it simply comes down to character. The position of Supreme Court Justice is, in my opinion, the most important position in our government. Clarence Thomas, from the accounts these women, including Ms. McEwan, have given does not have the proper character to sit on our highest court. He has shown himself to many people in his life to be sexist and unable to view women without a filter of sexuality. I would never trust him to be able to be a fair judge of any case involving any women’s issue, since he obviously thinks of women only as sexual objects.

    • Echo, actually some kinds of sexual harassment is criminal. But that’s neither here nor there really re Clarence Thomas. Fact is he was accused. Nothing was ever proven. I would bet a large amount that if he were a liberal, you would hear all sorts of cries of injustice for these accusations against him. But because he is a conservative…well we all know why Ben and all other lefties hate him and will not defend him against ACCUSATIONS until something is actually PROVEN. Typical.

      • He’s a liar, as are Alito and Roberts. They should be impeached.

      • No, if he were a liberal, I would feel the same way. Look, like I said, the position of Supreme Court Justice is the most important position we have in this country, even more important than the president. Supreme Court nominees are, and should be, held to the very highest standard. If a nominee, liberal or conservative, is accused of something as serious sexual harassment and a misogynistic attitude toward women, then he should not be appointed to the court. Maybe I’m biased because I’m a woman, but honestly, women have enough problems in this country, especially the way things are going right now. The fact that there’s a man sitting on the Court who thinks of women as sexual objects is incredibly troubling. I couldn’t care less about his political leanings.
