Lillian McEwen used to date Clarence Thomas (EWW!), but according to the Washington Post, she didn’t get the chance to testify at his confirmation hearings even though he never raped her. She is now “breaking her silence,” however, because she
is “shopping to publishers” a memoir heard about that weird thing his wife did to Anita Hill. Anyway, McEwen was a work colleague in addition to dating him, and she says he was “obsessed with porn” (did he have an early copy of the Internet?) and liked “large breasts.” Does Clarence Thomas also like ladies who write memoirs about him? Because this lady is siiiiiiingle! (EWW!)
“He was obsessed with porn,” she said of Thomas, who is now 63. “He would talk about what he had seen in magazines and films, if there was something worth noting.”
“He was always actively watching the women he worked with to see if they could be potential partners,” McEwen said matter-of-factly. “It was a hobby of his.”
And Clarence Thomas would show them stuff he got at the local “hobby shop.”
McEwen recalls writing Thomas a short note before the confirmation hearings, curious about what she should say if she were quizzed about their relationship. She said Thomas preferred that she would take “the same attitude of his first wife,” who never talked publicly about their relationship.
Act like the first wife. Just always act like the first wife.
Clarence Thomas is probably a lot more mellow now. Who does he hit on, Ruth Bader Ginsburg? No, he just hangs out with Scalia, probably, watching ever-weirder porn. [WP]Related
