Clarence Thomas Controversy

In 1982, Hill served as Thomas's assistant when he became Chairman of the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC), but left the position one year later. Hill's reason for leaving came to light in 1991, when she came forward with accusations that her former boss, and by then Supreme Court nominee, had sexually harassed her while at the EEOC.
