The Cato Institute later paraphrased Biden's general line of questioning in the hearing as, "Are you now or have you ever been a libertarian?
" On October 6, 1991, after the conclusion of the confirmation hearings, and while the full Senate was debating whether to give final approval to Thomas's nomination, NPR Supreme Court correspondent Nina Totenberg aired information from a leaked Judiciary Committee/FBI report stating that a former colleague of Thomas, University of Oklahoma law school professor Anita Hill, accused him of making unwelcome sexual comments to her when the two worked together at the Department of Education (ED) and then at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC).
The allegations led to a media frenzy about sexual harassment, and further investigations.
“It was pretty entertaining to watch.” Thomas — who was infamously slammed with sexual-harassment allegations in 1991 — loved to bathe and often stayed in the bathtub for hours, she said.
“When I met him, he took showers so frequently that his shoulders were chapped and the skin was cracking from the water force, so I introduced him to baths with bath milk, oils and salts,” she said.
The hearings are depicted in the HBO movie “Confirmation,” which premiered Saturday.
The nomination proceedings were contentious from the start, especially over the issue of abortion, and many women's groups and civil rights groups opposed Thomas on the basis of his conservative political views, as they had also opposed Bush's Supreme Court nominee from the previous year, David Souter.
