Sen. Danforth, chief Senate sponsor and former boss of Supreme Court Nominee Clarence Thomas, held a news conference in the U.S. Capitol to distribute material supporting Judge Thomas and to reiterate his full support for Judge Thomas' confirmation to the Supreme Court. Over the weekend, allegations were aired in the media that Judge Thomas had sexually harassed an employee of his when he worked in the Department of Education. Sen. Danforth distributed a sworn affidavit from Judge Thomas disclaiming the allegations, and a phone log from Judge Thomas' office showing the employee, Anita Hill, had called him at his office between the time of the alleged harassment in the early 1980's and his confirmation to the Supreme Court, thus insinuating the allegations are untrue since she maintained a professional relationship with the judge. close
