Televised hearings were re-opened and held by the Senate Judiciary Committee before the nomination was moved to the full, Democratic-controlled, Senate for a vote.
Thomas was confirmed by a narrow majority of 52 to 48.
Thomas was nominated to the Supreme Court by President George H. Bush in 1991 and simultaneously accused by his former assistant Anita Hill of sexually harassing her while she worked for him at the Department of Education.
In confirmation hearings, Thomas denied the allegations and was confirmed to the bench by a 52-48 Senate vote.
A former gal pal of Clarence Thomas said the future Supreme Court justice was a manscaping maven with an impeccable scent during their ménage-à-trois days.
“He mostly always smelled like soap and just naturally had a wonderful odor to his body,” retired federal prosecutor Lillian Mc Ewen, 70, told The Post.
The allegations led to a media frenzy about sexual harassment, and further investigations.The hearings are depicted in the HBO movie “Confirmation,” which premiered Saturday.The nomination proceedings were contentious from the start, especially over the issue of abortion, and many women's groups and civil rights groups opposed Thomas on the basis of his conservative political views, as they had also opposed Bush's Supreme Court nominee from the previous year, David Souter.One such statement came from African-American activist attorney Florynce Kennedy at a July 1991 conference of the National Organization for Women in New York City.Referring to the failure of Ronald Reagan's nomination of Robert Bork, she said of Thomas, "We're going to 'bork' him." Public confirmation hearings on the Thomas nomination began on September 10, 1991, and lasted for 10 days.
