Hell hath no fury like Anita Hill ignored as Joe Biden is about to learn the hard way. In what will surely be a fatal blow to Biden’s already failing campaign, Hill just told CNN she’s “ready to hold Biden accountable.”
Biden’s campaign is sinking – he can’t raise money from small donors as he has no natural base and must rely on big-ticket donors and PACs.
Not the stuff that inspires hope in the liberal base. Further complicating Biden’s campaign is Hill – women and African Americans (the key to winning the Dem primary) will be forced to reconcile who Joe was with who he says he is now.
That is a hard trick to pull off in today’s digital age.
Anita Hill said she’s “ready to hold Joe Biden accountable” for his role in leading the confirmation hearing of now-Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, whom she publicly accused of sexual harassment nearly 30 years ago.
“Have I forgiven Joe Biden? I’m ready to move on, but I am also ready to hold Joe Biden accountable. Accountability means acknowledging your role in a problem and the harm it’s caused. Acknowledging that you have culpability,” Hill told CNN’s Christiane Amanpour at the CITIZEN by CNN conference in New York on Thursday.
Hill continued: “Giving me clear information that you have made a change and that you are going to do something to make us all better off around gender discrimination.”
The Biden campaign declined to comment on Hill’s Thursday statement.
Earlier this year, Biden had a conversation with Hill in which he shared “his regret for what she endured” during the 1991 hearings, according to his campaign.
