    Anita Hill's complaint was merely that Clarence Thomas pressured her to date him


    Anita Hill testified that Clarence Thomas graphically discussed sex acts at work

    Hill’s complaints about Thomas involved much more than unwelcome pressure for a date. In her 1997 book, Speaking Truth to Power, Hill wrote that she told the two FBI agents who interviewed her, John B. Luton and Jolene Smith Jameson, "about Thomas' descriptions of pornography, the pressure for dates, the discussions of his sexual activities." Further, according to an October 7, 1991, New York Times article, congressional officials said that in her affidavit submitted to the Senate Judiciary Committee, "Professor Hill said that typically after a brief discussion of work, Judge Thomas would turn the conversations to discussions about his sexual interests. She described his remarks as vivid as he discussed sexual acts he had seen in pornographic films."

    In her opening statement at the Senate Judiciary Committee hearing, on October 11, 1991, Hill testified that after she turned down Thomas' "invitation to go out socially with him," he "continued to ask me out on several occasions" and "pressed me to justify my reasons for saying no to him." She asserted that Thomas also "began to use work situations to discuss sex" and that these "conversations were very vivid." She claimed that "on several occasions, Thomas told me graphically of his own sexual prowess."
