Clarence Thomas bio goes on sale Monday.

WASHINGTON (AP) - Breaking his 16-year public silence on his bitter confirmation hearings, Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas says Anita Hill was a mediocre employee who was used by political opponents to make claims she had been sexually harassed.

Thomas writes about Hill, his former employee in two government agencies, and the allegations that nearly derailed his nomination to the high court in 1991 in his autobiography, "My Grandfather's Son."

A copy of the book, which goes on sale Monday, was obtained Friday by The Associated Press.

He writes with indignation of the nationally televised hearings that he memorably called a "high-tech lynching." A child of the segregated South, Thomas says he was being pursued "not by bigots in white robes but by left-wing zealots draped in flowing sanctimony."

This is going to be a great read for a number of reasons. The pure satanic hatred which the Left spews at any minority who flees the left-liberal plantation and dares to think for themselves must be seen to be believed. And it was put on display for all the world to see in the Thomas confirmation hearings.
