Clarence Thomas’ Name on College Building

Students from Savannah College of Art and Design drafted a petition to have Justice Clarence Thomas’ name removed from a campus building. “The case between Clarence Thomas and Anita Hill in 1991 was extremely similar to what is happening to Dr. Ford today,” the petition states, “When will we learn that a victim’s trauma should outweigh politics?

Senate Republicans are in charge. They should act like it!

The Democrats and their allies in the media have turned the month-long confirmation process of a Supreme Court nominee into a back ally brawl.

If Senate Republicans want to play by the rules in this fight, they should exercise the power they already have. The Hill has the commentary: These folks are the ones who went hat-in-hand to disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein, who turned sexual assault into an Oscar-winning ...
