Was It Legal for Anita Hill to Call the Cops After Ginny Thomas Left Her a Voicemail? Fox News Debates (VIDEO)

Anita Hill is back in the news, 19 years after her allegations that now-Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas had sexually harassed her scandalized the nation during Thoma's Supreme Court confirmation hearings.

Apparently, Thomas' wife Ginny recently left a message on Hill's answering machine, asking Hill if she would apologize for what she had put her husband through all those years ago. Hill responded by reporting the call to the police.

On the Kelly's Court segment of 'America Live' (weekdays, 1PM ET on Fox News) Megyn Kelly wondered if Hill had engaged in "criminal abuse of emergency services" by alerting the authorities to what she described as a polite and non-threatening call.

"It might not be threatening, per se, but it sure is bizarre," argued attorney Jonna Spilbor, who believes Hill is within her rights. "This dog has been asleep for 20 years. Why all the sudden would she pick up the phone? It's not so much what she said, but when she said it."

Lawyer Mercedes Colwin disagreed: "The is abuse of process," she declared.

Hopefully, if this debate continues, we will eventually hear from Long Dong Silver, the notorious porn star who played a starring role in Thomas' 1991 confirmation hearings.
