Well, this is interesting.
An Alaska lawyer said Justice Clarence Thomas groped her at a dinner party in 1999, a claim that Thomas said is “preposterous,” the National Law Journal reported Thursday.
The publication said Moira Smith posted on Facebook about the alleged incident Oct. 7, the night of the disclosure of Republican presidential nominee’ Donald Trump’s taped boasts about grabbing women.
The NLJ report said Smith, at the time a 23-year-old Truman Foundation scholar, said that the incident occurred at the Falls Church, Va., home of her boss. She said Thomas grabbed and squeezed her buttocks several times.
“He groped me while I was setting the table, suggesting I should sit ‘right next to him,’ ” Smith wrote, according to the NLJ report...
Thomas, in a statement through the Supreme Court’s press office, denied Smith’s allegations.
“This claim is preposterous and it never happened,” Thomas said.
Now, IIRC, Congress spent quite a bit of time and money investigating a certain president accused of having a consensual relationship with a woman. It seems to me that if a sitting Supreme Court Justice, a person who can only be removed from office via impeachment, is accused of sexual assault, shouldn't the Congress put together an investigative committee to determine if the accusation is credible or not? Think that will happen? Because IOKIYAR, I seriously doubt that will happen.
