Clarence Thomas

U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ confirmation process made headlines when Anita Hill, an attorney who worked with him at the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission, testified during the confirmation hearings that he had made sexually suggestive comments to her that demonstrated "behavior that is unbefitting an individual who will be a member of the Court." Thomas has always denied any wrongdoing, but 20 years later, Hill maintains her position and the charges will always be an asterisk in the annals chronicaling  his career.
