Thomas
v. To accuse a person of sexual harassment.

Example Citation:
"Moreover, the veiled threat here is truly odious: Appoint someone we like, or prepare to be Borked and Thomased once again."
The Washington Times, "The confirmation ‘process’ morass" (editorial quoted in The Barnhart Dictionary Companion)

Notes:
This new verb originates from the sexual harassment accusations aimed at Clarence Thomas during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings. This is similar to the more general verb to Bork: to attack a person's character in a particularly vicious manner; from the brutal treatment aimed at Robert Bork during his Supreme Court confirmation hearings.
