I believe Anita Hill

Posted By on Sat, Oct 23, 2010 at 6:14 AM

Another woman, a former long-time girlfriend, has stepped forward to talk about Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas.

The porn stuff? True. But it's not just about sex, Lillian McEwen says:

Though Ms. McEwen still seems to get upset discussing Justice Thomas at times, she said she was the one who ended the relationship.

“He was changing and I didn’t like it,” she said. “He was just becoming obsessed with campaigning for the president and interviewing with reporters and raising his child in a way I didn’t like. It’s a combination of obsessed, ambitious, irritable and bullying that was just too much for me.”

The justice's wife has some of the same propensity for hectoring. Too bad for her. Her phone call to Anita Hill drove McEwen out of the closet after all these years.
