The committee heard a statement from Supreme Court nominee and U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Clarence Thomas to begin his reopened confirmation hearings. Anita Hill, a former employee under Judge Thomas in the Department of Education and later the EEOC, had notified the Judiciary Committee earlier during Judge Thomas' confirmation hearings that she had been sexually harassed by Judge Thomas when he was her boss during the early 1980s. Originally, the charges had been investigated and discussed with committee members by Judiciary Committee Chair Joe Biden. Over the weekend before the Senate confirmation vote on Judge Thomas, Professor Hill’s charges were leaked to the press, setting off a fire storm of debate on the Supreme Court nominee’s propriety. The Senate delayed the confirmation vote from October 10 to October 15 to accommodate additional hearings on the charges.

In his opening statement, Judge Thomas vehemently denied having harassed Ms. Hill. close
