I've been keeping this for over fifteen years, but after reading the s@#t in the media about Anthony Weiner I'm getting it off my chest.  I used to go to a place in New York on the East Side about 16 or 17 years ago.  One of the girls I was with told me one of her clients was Clarence Thomas.  She didn't give any dates or details other than to say he wasn't very friendly.  I really didn't care very much at the time, and since I have a very liberal attitude about these things I thought it wasn't anybody's business.

Now that the reactionary media is playing "gotcha" with Anthony Weiner I feel like expressing my disgust at the hypocrisy of these social Talibanistas.  Especially ironic that Weiner has led the charge against Thomas for not recusing himself in the upcoming health care reform issue.  

There's no doubt Anita Hill was telling the truth about Thomas, and while I don't expect anyone to believe my story I felt like telling it anyway.  I don't know the name of the girl I was with or the name of the place where she was working.  I doubt if it's still there after all these years.  But maybe there are other stories and/or rumors about Thomas' clandestine social activities that others may pick up on. If reactionaries want to play hardball over a few ill-advised tweets of a personal nature, then all bets are off as far as I'm concerned and if some investigatory journalist can dig up more dirt on Clarence Thomas that would be fine with me.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
