Anita Hill Shares Her Opinion On How Dr. Ford/ Judge Kavanaugh Hearing Should Be Conducted
The September 2018 case of Dr. Christine Blasey Ford where she is asserting a claim of a past sexual assault against the current SCOTUS nominee Judge Brett Kavanaugh, hearkens back to a time (1991), when Anita Hill made similar assertions against the current sitting Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas. After, she was discounted based in part by testimony from Mr. Thomas’s other female working colleagues, his confirmation was rushed through, but then later, three other women came forward with similar allegations.
It’s the same republican Senators Chuck Grassley and Orrin Hatch who are rushing the confirmation process through for Judge Brett Kavanaugh that did likewise for Justice Clarence Thomas.
Check out below video as to how believable Judge Clarence Thomas was in his denials, when we know that were other woman with sexual harassment claims against him.
As per Wikipedia, “Christine Margaret Blasey Ford (known professionally as Christine Blasey) (born c. 1967) is an American psychologist and professor in clinical psychology at Palo Alto University. Widely published in her field, she specializes in designing statistical models for research projects. During her academic career, Ford has worked as a research psychologist for Stanford University’s Department of Psychiatry and a professor at the Stanford University School of Medicine Collaborative Clinical Psychology Program.
On September 18, 2018, Anita Hill for the New York Times penned the following opinion piece, ‘Anita Hill: How to Get the Kavanaugh Hearings Right’
“The Senate Judiciary Committee has a chance to do better by the country than it did nearly three decades ago.”
“There is no way to redo 1991, but there are ways to do better.”
“The facts underlying Christine Blasey Ford’s claim of being sexually assaulted by a young Brett Kavanaugh will continue to be revealed as confirmation proceedings unfold. Yet it’s impossible to miss the parallels between the Kavanaugh confirmation hearing of 2018 and the 1991 confirmation hearing for Justice Clarence Thomas. In 1991, the Senate Judiciary Committee had an opportunity to demonstrate its appreciation for both the seriousness of sexual harassment claims and the need for public confidence in the character of a nominee to the Supreme Court. It failed on both counts.“
