ABSTRACT
Comments on the confirmation of the nomination of Clarence Thomas to the U.S. Supreme Court despite a sexual harassment claim by law professor Anita Hill. Argument of Thomas that Hill had misinterpreted his clumsy attempts at courtship and ribald humor; Conspiracy of "interest groups" to program Hill with a racist story pieced together from bits of old law cases and novels; Reasons that were believed strong enough for the Senate to reject Thomas' nomination.
