    That doesn't change the fact that he ought to be impeached.

    I wonder if you'd be so complacent if this were Sotomayor instead of Thomas...

    Now please demonstrate that Thomas indisputably sexual harassed someone.
    Just a little note - I don't like being talked down to. I have already said that the EEOC guidelines do not limit sexual harassment to threats of job security in exchange for sexual favors. Sexual advances, if welcomed by the recipient, obviously wouldn't fall under sexual harassment guidelines, so that statement is not germane to the Hill issue.

    Sexual advances are deemed harassment when they are reasonably shown to cause distress and harm to the recipient. If Anita Hill felt that his statements were harassment, then she had every right to express that view. Whether what he did falls under EEOC guidelines would have been up to the commission set up to interpret the law. Neither Hill nor Thomas can determine the outcome if her allegations had been tried by either a commission, such as the one set up in Massachusetts, or by a civil court as established in other states.

    I think all that nonsense establishes is that Clarence Thomas is a human male. I dislike his politics, I think his penchant for pursuing women is...ordinary.
    Do women really not believe the statistics with regards to how many times a day guys think about sex?
    Or is it that they still think we need to be punished and humiliated for it?

    Then you would AGREE that Thomas is fully correct in claiming his INNOCENCE until a trial finds him guilty, correct?
    If you believe in the Supernatural then you can become a millionaire!

    Questioning or criticizing another's core beliefs is inadvertently perceived as offensive and rude.

    No, he doesn't.

    impeachement is the nuclear weapon of government, so no, i would be "complacent". I have never called for the impeachement of another official, for i have yet to see a politician worth impeaching.

    I have handled over 75 Federal cases on Title VII. What Thomas did does not rise to a hostile work environment claim (it is clearly not a quid pro quo claim) because his comments were not severe and pervasive enough to alter the conditions of her employment. Plus her actions after the alleged harassment establish that his alleged conduct was not "unwelcome". Since she was a federal employee, she was required to contact an EEO counselor within 45 days of the last act that she claimed constituted a "hostile work environment" and she did not. Thus a court would have no jurisdiction to entertain her claims.

    Nope, there is not enough probable cause for him to even be indicted let alone convicted and the federal statute of limitations on perjury are about 15 years passed.
