Ex: Thomas Was Obsessed With Porn

Ginni Thomas was seeking closure when she left a voicemail for Anita Hill. This probably isn’t what she expected: Clarence Thomas’s ex-girlfriend Lillian McEwen, whom he dated in the 1980s, tells The Washington Post that “he was obsessed with porn. He would talk about what he had seen in magazines and films, if there was something worth noting.” She also says he was a big fan of large breasts; McEwen says he once told her he was so impressed by his coworker’s chest that he asked her bra size. McEwen, a retired prosecutor and law professor, was never asked to testify during Thomas’ confirmation hearings in 1991. She never spoke about her relationship with Thomas, but says she changed her mind after reports that his wife, Ginni, left a message for Hill; McEwen is also shopping her memoirs.
