“Hell hath no fury like a wife whose husband has been publicly scorned,” noted Washington Post columnist Ruth Marcus. But what motivated U.S. Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas’ wife, Virginia Thomas, to leave a phone message last week for Anita Hill, calling on Hill to apologize all these years later for her testimony in those confirmation hearings? Others have backed up Hill’s allegations that Clarence Thomas (in photo) sexually harassed her, Marcus noted. “Clarence Thomas has taken the road of angry denial and, unless she’s about to let her marriage unravel over it, the path of least resistance may be for Ginni to join him there.”
Then again, why did Hill hear in the message a threat worthy of a call to law enforcement? Marcus wrote: “A voice mail on an office phone isn’t exactly intrusive, and there was no harassing follow-up. Ginni Thomas might have been out of line, but she wasn’t threatening in any way.”
