Overreaction

You might have heard that Virginia Thomas, wife of Supreme Court Justice Clarence Thomas, called Anita Hill a couple of Saturdays ago. Not a bright idea, in my humble opinion.

Here, according to the LAT, is a transcript of the voicemail she left:

"Good morning, Anita Hill, it's Ginni Thomas. I just wanted to reach across the airwaves and the years and ask you to consider something. I would love you to consider an apology sometime and some full explanation of why you did what you did with my husband. So give it some thought and certainly pray about this and come to understand why you did what you did. OK, have a good day."
Again, according to the LAT, and apparently confirmed by a campus official, Hill turned the voicemail message over to security at Brandeis University, where she teaches "social policy, law and women's studies."

The campus authorities then proceeded to turn the recording over to the fucking FBI.

Again, while I think it was a really, really bad idea for Virginia Thomas to contact Hill, go back and look at that transcript. Is there anything remotely threatening going on there that the FBI should be looking into? Was there a crime committed?
