A Blast From The Past
Answering Machine Harrassment? Ginnie Thomas calls Anita Hill. It’s been almost twenty years since Brandeis professor Anita Hill testified before a special congressional committee about then supreme court nominee Clarence Thomas. Hill said she had been repeated sexually harassed by Thomas with odd words and sexual references and suggestive actions toward her.

We’re joined by Bryan Bender from the Globe’s Washington bureau, who wrote about the story.
