Anita Hill "Deeply Unsatisfied" With Joe Biden's Eve-of-Announcement "Apology"

Anita Hill has long criticized Joe Biden for the way he conducted the Senate Judiciary Committee hearings in the Clarence Thomas nomination process.

A process Thomas called a "high-tech lynching." And Anita Hill, I guess, was upset that the accused was permitted to defend himself, and that his supporters were permitted to ask her difficult questions.

Joe Biden never bothered apologizing to her for these grievances for the past, what?, 30 years?

But on the eve of the announcement of his bid to be nominated as the candidate of a transformed, feminist-dominated party, Sleepy Joe finally got around to doin' some forced apologizin'.

Or, not apologizing -- "expressing regret."

Anita Hill rejects it as too little too late.

[M]s. Hill says the call from Mr. Biden left her feeling deeply unsatisfied.

In a lengthy telephone interview on Wednesday, she declined to characterize Mr. Biden's words to her as an apology and said she was not convinced that he has taken full responsibility for his conduct at the hearings -- or for the harm he caused other victims of sexual harassment and gender violence.

She said she views Mr. Biden as having "set the stage" for last year’s confirmation of Justice Brett M. Kavanaugh, who, like Justice Thomas, was elevated to the court despite accusations against him that he had acted inappropriately toward women. And, she added, she was troubled by the recent accounts of women who say Mr. Biden touched them in ways that made them feel uncomfortable....

“I cannot be satisfied by simply saying, 'I'm sorry for what happened to you,'" said Ms. Hill, now a professor of social policy, law and women’s studies at Brandeis University. "I will be satisfied when I know there is real change and real accountability and real purpose."

[S]he added [that she] support Mr. Biden for president until he takes full responsibility for his conduct, including his failure to call as corroborating witnesses other women who were willing to testify before the Judiciary Committee. By leaving them out, she said, he created a "he said, she said" situation that did not have to exist.

Anita Hill isn't the only woman Biden's pissed off with his announcement.

The mother of Heather Heyer, killed in the Charlottesville mayhem, isn't pleased the Biden is using her daughter's death to score political points.
