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


    The truth will out!

    Excerpted from “Lillian McEwen breaks her 19-year silence about Justice Clarence Thomas” By Michael A. Fletcher
    Washington Post Staff Writer, The Washington Post, Friday, October 22, 2010
    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. …

    She has written a memoir, which she is now shopping to publishers. News broke that the justice's wife, Virginia Thomas, left a voice mail on Hill's office phone at Brandeis University, seeking an apology -- a request that Hill declined in a statement. After that, McEwen changed her mind and decided to talk about her relationship with Thomas.

    "I have nothing to be afraid of," she said, adding that she hopes the attention stokes interest in her manuscript.
    Still, McEwen, a Democrat, acknowledges growing increasingly irritated with Thomas's conservative jurisprudence and his penchant for casting himself as a victim in the Hill controversy.
    Yea, there's no reason to doubt any of this.

    Don't like the testimony? Discredit the witness. You're all too predictable.

    I point out some very obvious reasons to doubt her claims and you pretend that they don't exist because you desperately want to believe what she's saying. Yea, I'm the one who's predictable.

    Imagine the following scenario: A guy who was friends with Obama in law school 19 years ago claims that he was secretly a radical liberal who dabbled in communism and hated America. That guy just so happens to go public with his claims at the same time that he was pushing a book that he wrote about his life. That guy also just so happens to be a Republican.

    Would you believe that guy's claims, or would you immediately characterize him as a liar and partisan hack?

    Yes, you're predictable. Just like the lawyer you are. We all love you lawyers for your predictability. This is just a case to be argued for you; you could care less about the beating hearts of the women Thomas has victimized in his career. Heaven forbid you address the substance of the accusation. No! Your sole goal is just to strip this woman of her credibility, her dignity. Thanks for that. Be proud of yourself.

    Quit whining, chappy. These accusations always carry suspicion. You should know better than to proudly proclaim, "The truth will out!"

    This is bogus and she is just calling attention to her manuscript and to defame someone she is in political opposition with.

    Yeah, Chappy.

    I'm 100% beyond-a-shadow-of-a-doubt certain that you said "aha! The truth will out!" when Juanita Broderick came out with her story about Clinton raping her. I can't possibly imagine things any other way.

    This is real close to "Much a do about nothing," since she was his girl friend and said: "Thomas often said inappropriate things about women he met at work -- and that she could have added her voice to the others, but didn't."

    Big deal as long as he wasn't making inappropriate remarks directly to the women.

    "He was always actively watching the women he worked with to see if they could be potential partners," McEwen said matter-of-factly. "It was a hobby of his."
    So what he was single all single men and I dare say women do this it's human nature, unless you're a homosexual. Or do I have it all wrong.

    I have never been a fan and I am always suspicious of people like Anita Hill who said nothing at the time and then later come up with a story of being aa sad victim.

    It's just like Meg Whitman's old Housekeeper who jumped up all weepy with a story of abuse. What a load. Add Gloria Allwet and the story becomes a full blown load of Bovine Scatology since Allwet is a first level media whore.

    I just wonder what the (expletive) is the point to bring this up now other than his silly wife is acting the fool, dragging up old dead stories.
