David Brock, who made his name raking Anita Hill over the coals after the Clarence Thomas confirmation hearings, now says he lied--and he's sorry. The formerly right-wing author, in a forthcoming book, says he "lost my soul" in printing allegations he knew to be untrue. Brock writes that he was "dumping virtually every derogatory --and often contradictory--allegation I had collected on Hill into the vituperative mix."

If the world ended tomorrow and good and evil fought it out for keeps, I imagine that David Brock would be one of the devil's chief recruits. His public behavior in recent years gives you the strong impression that he's exactly the kind of unctuous weasel you'd expect hell to be full of--hell, of course, being a place like Washington, a pit made wretched not by any external force but by its own jockeying inhabitants.

A crisis that has crippled New Hampshire's highest court for nearly six months came to a close Tuesday when Supreme Court Chief Justice David Brock was acquitted overwhelmingly of four articles of impeachment. Moments after the final vote, the 64-year-old Brock--who tenaciously faced down the first such trial in state history--smiled and hugged his tearful wife.

The state's chief justice was impeached by the Legislature on Wednesday in the first such action against a New Hampshire public official since 1790. He will face a state Senate trial that could result in his removal from the bench. Deepening a constitutional crisis that began over a divorce case, the state House voted, 253 to 95, to impeach David A. Brock for a host of alleged offenses, some of them more than a decade old. The vote came after seven hours of debate.

The Paula Jones lawsuit against President Clinton, the tales that Clinton used Arkansas state troopers to procure sex, the rumor that the president sneaks out of the White House at night for secret sexual trysts all derive from the work of one man, conservative writer David Brock. With his lurid stories, Brock has been the source of more glee for conservatives, more fodder for radio talk shows and barroom jokes--and more heartache for the first family--than anyone in America.
