President Bush's nomination of Clarence Thomas was instantly controversial. Many groups opposed Clarence Thomas, nomination to the high court (ie NAACP and several women's groups. Despite these voices of dissent, the Thomas nomination proceeded to the Senate Judiciary Committee's confirmation hearings. The committee split its vote, however--seven to seven, and the nomination went to the Senate without a clear recommendation.
When the nomination moved to the floor of the Senate, it took a sudden and dramatic turn when Anita Hill, a law professor at the University of Oklahoma, came forward with accusations that Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her. Hill had worked for Thomas years earlier when he was head of the Equal Employment Opportunities Commission. Hill charged that Thomas harassed her with inappropriate discussion of sexual acts and pornographic films after she rebuffed his invitations to date him.

I have no clue since I wasn't there. It is possible he harassed her it is also possible she is a liar. We will never know the truth.
