Law For Sexual Harassment
Q: If what I've heard so far is all enough to actually impeach
Clinton, will the US rightwing now agree to retroactively impeach
A: Allow me, as a lawyer, to point out that she had NO corroborating evidence or testimony of any kind. AND let me also point out that the sole person who said that Anita Hill had actually discussed her harassment "by her boss" (please note that Thomas was not specifically named in the conversation being recalled but that the witness, by her own admission, "knew" it had to be Thomas anyway) hopelessly compromised her testimony but no one noticed it at the time? Specifically, when Arlene Spectre asked her when and how this information had been brought to her attention, she said (I am paraphrasing here; if you wish I can find you the exact words she used) "Anita and I were no longer in direct daily contact, but we spoke on the phone on a near nightly basis. One night she called me, badly upset. I asked her why, and she said she was being harassed by her boss." The key point in this testimony was that the witness was asserting that this was a LOCAL call (this is quite clear in the body of the testimony) . . . BUT ANITA HILL DID NOT GO TO WORK FOR CLARENCE THOMAS UNTIL AFTER THE WITNESS HAD MOVED TO CALIFORNIA. At the time this call apparently took place, she was in fact working for a prominent Washington law firm, one of whose senior partners had had repeated run ins with his partners, the bar association, and the law for sexual harassment of female employees.
