Senate Supreme Court smear of Clarence Thomas in 1991

Back in 1991, Judge Clarence Thomas was nominated by George Bush Sr to fill a vacancy on the SCOTUS bench.

The Democrat-controlled Senate took to a smear campaign dug up by staffers alleging Thomas had engaged in inappropriate sexual behavior with Anita Hill, someone he worked with a decade prior.

Suffice to say Anita Hill was subject to a detailed grilling over her sordid allegations and such was the humiliation, the other two key witnesses declined to subject themselves to the same treatment.

The Senate Judiciary Committee chairman was Joe Biden.

Politics is a dirty business. One wonders what dirt will be dished up for the coming nominee?!!
