Wade if he were seated on the Supreme Court, used the scandal against him.
He also wrote that Hill "was a left-winger who'd never expressed any religious sentiments whatsoever..the only reason why she'd held a job in the Reagan administration was because I'd given it to her." In October 2010, Thomas's wife Virginia, a conservative activist, left a voicemail at Hill's office asking that Hill apologize for her 1991 testimony.
Anita Faye Hill (born July 30, 1956) is an American attorney and academic. Hill then became an assistant professor at the Evangelical Christian O. Coburn School of Law at Oral Roberts University where she taught from 1983 to 1986. Senate hearings on his confirmation were initially completed Hill said in the October 1991 televised hearings that Thomas had sexually harassed her while he was her supervisor at the Department of Education and the EEOC.
She is a University Professor of Social Policy, Law, and Women's Studies at Brandeis University and a faculty member of Brandeis' Heller School for Social Policy and Management. When questioned on why she followed Thomas to the second job after he had already allegedly harassed her, she said working in a reputable position within the civil rights field had been her ambition.
Hill is mentioned in the 1992 Sonic Youth song "Youth Against Fascism".
After being informed that the call was indeed from Virginia Thomas, Hill told the media that she did not believe the message was meant to be conciliatory and said, "I testified truthfully about my experience and I stand by that testimony." Shortly after the Thomas confirmation hearings, President George H. Bush dropped his opposition to a bill giving harassment victims the right to seek federal damage awards, back pay and reinstatement, and the law was passed by Congress.
The University of Oklahoma Law School defunded the Anita F.
Hill professorship in May 1999, without the position having ever been filled.
During court session, Republican Senator Orrin Hatch implied that "Hill was working in tandem with "slick lawyers" and interest groups bent on destroying Thomas' chances to join the court".
Thomas said he considered Hill a friend whom he had helped at every turn, so when accusations of harassment came from her they were particularly hurtful and he said, "I lost the belief that if I did my best, all would work out." Four female witnesses reportedly waited in the wings to support Hill's credibility, but they were not called, Hill agreed to take a polygraph test.
