The committee heard testimony from Supreme Court nominee and U.S.

Court of Appeals Judge Clarence Thomas on the second day of his

reopened confirmation hearings. Committee members questioned Judge

Thomas on the sexual harassment charges alleged against him by

University of Oklahoma Law Professor Anita Hill dating to the time

Professor Hill worked under Judge Thomas in the Department of

Education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the

early 1980s. Judge Thomas was questioned on his relationship with

Professor Hill before and after her employment as his assistant.

Senator Hatch proposed that Professor Hill created her charges from a

civil rights case heard in the U.S. Court of Appeals, Tenth Circuit,

and from the 1970s book The Exorcist. Judge Thomas repeated his

denial of the charges put against him, and said the charges of sexual

harassment were particularly painful when put against a black man as

they reinforce social stereotypes against blacks. close
