Anita Hill criticized dealing with Kavanaugh statement

In an op-ed in the New York Times, Anita Hill, the Senate judiciary Committee, writes learned a little of the Clarence Thomas hearings, the claims by a deficiency of the Protocol for the security check sexual harassment and assault.

In an op-ed for the Hill published in The New York Times on Tuesday, Anita the goal of the Senate judiciary Committee took deals with the sexual assault allegations leveled against Supreme Court nominee Brett Kavanaugh and building on their own experiences with the Committee in the year 1991.

In her column, Hill said that the Committee had failed to “show its appreciation for both the seriousness of the sexual harassment, the claims and the need to have the confidence of the public in the character of a nomination to the Supreme court”, if you said that in 1991, then-nominee Clarence Thomas.

Thomas was eventually confirmed as a Supreme Court justice, a position he continues to hold.

Hill, now a professor at Brandeis University, accused Thomas of unwanted advances and lewd comments when she worked for him in the Department of education and the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission in the 1980s.

“The Senate judiciary Committee a Protocol for the security check sexual harassment and assault are still missing the claims that the surface during a hearing suggests that the Committee has little learned from the Thomas listen to, much less the newer #MeToo movement,” she wrote.

Hill said that, in order to make for the Committee, “better,” must “follow some basic rules.”

They proposed to investigate the choice of a “neutral investigation” of the allegations; balancing the interests of the public in the case of treatment of both sides of the Fair; delay Monday’s upcoming hearing, she said, leaves no time for a “meaningful investigation”; and with reference to the Kavanaugh Prosecutor, Dr. Christine Blasey Ford is your name.

Ford s-accusations came just a few days before the committee was a vote on Kavanaugh’s nomination.


You accused Kavanaugh of pinning you scream on a bed during a house party in Maryland in the early 1980s, she tries to remove her clothes and put his hand over her mouth when she tried to. At the time of the alleged encounter, Ford was 15, and Kavanaugh was 17, she said, adding that Kavanaugh was drunk.

He has denied all the allegations.

“With the years, in retrospect, way, a heap of evidence for the spread and the damage that does not cause sexual violence, and that individuals and our institutions, as well as a Senate with more women than ever, ‘understood’ is not an option for our elected representatives,” Hill wrote.

“In 2018,” she said, “our senators must do it right.”
