Justice Clarence Thomas is a controversial figure on the U.S. Supreme Court because of sexual harassment allegations raised against him during his 1991 Senate confirmation hearings. This study avoids unanswerable questions about Thomas’s past by making a straightforward comparison of his confirmation testimony about his judicial philosophy against his subsequent judicial opinions. This comparison raises serious questions about Thomas’s truthfulness during his sworn testimony before the Senate Judiciary Committee. Because the legitimacy of the courts depends on the integrity of the judges, the authors argue for increased consideration of impeachment if significant evidence indicates that judicial nominees intentionally deceived the Senate and the public about their views on law and public policy.

Review:

«In examining Justice Thomas’s statements and opinions, Smith and Baugh marshal evidence from an impressive range of constitutional issues to produce an arresting analysis. The provocative framework employed in 'The Real Clarence Thomas' provides a basis for analyzing confirmation testimony and is likely to spawn future research on judicial nominees.» (Madhavi McCall, Bucknell University)
«Smith and Baugh raise serious questions about Justice Thomas’s veracity, and they pursue their argument to its logical conclusion by asking whether Thomas should be impeached. Whether or not you agree with their argument, this is a fascinating and important book for anyone interested in the Supreme Court.» (Thomas R. Hensley, Kent State University)
