Newly announced presidential candidate Joe Biden contacted Anita Hill earlier this month to express “regret” over the way her sexual-assault allegations against Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas were handled—but Hill didn’t walk away happy.
She told The New York Times this week that she was unsatisfied with their conversation and refuses to call what he said an apology.
“I cannot be satisfied by simply saying I’m sorry for what happened to you. I will be satisfied when I know there is real change and real accountability and real purpose,” she said. Hill added that she doesn’t think Biden yet understands the true consequences of his actions, and, as such, she cannot support his presidential bid.
