Clarence Thomas’s Wife Ginny Asks Anita Hill To Apologize
Virginia Thomas would like Anita Hill to apologize for accusing her husband, Clarence, of harassment during the time Thomas was sent up to the Supreme Court. Thomas made the request in a voicemail to Hill.
“Good morning, Anita Hill, it’s Ginny Thomas,” said the voice. “I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband. So give it some thought and certainly pray about this and come to understand why you did what you did. OK, have a good day.”
Hill didn’t think the call was real.
“I initially thought it was a prank,” Hill told ABC News. “And if it was, I thought the authorities should know about it.”
Hill reported the call to campus police at Brandeis where she teaches. And she didn’t appreciate the approach.
Hill told ABC News: “Even if it wasn’t a prank, it was in no way conciliatory for her to begin with the presumption that I did something wrong in 1991. I simply testified to the truth of my experience. For her to say otherwise is not extending an olive branch, it’s accusatory.”
She continued: “I don’t apologize. I have no intention of apologizing, and I stand by my testimony in 1991.”Click here for reuse options!
