  •  Serious question about Monicagate & Vernon Jordan (2+ / 0-)

    I remember listening to an NPR affiliate news talk show and the host had an expert on Monicagate on, and they asked the audience a question -- something like what was the actual wrong doing that Clinton was invesigated for with respect to Monical Lewinski.  All these people called in and said Clinton lied under oath about sex.

    They kept saying that was wrong -- although obviously the lying about sex was embarrassing.  

    The actual "justification" (if that word can be used) for the investigation was that Clinton had spoken to Vernon Jordan about getting Lewinski a job in New York, and that was somehow unethical.

    Does anyone know the relationship between the investigation and the Lewinski job thingy?

      WH interns are typically well connected (her dad was a big Dem contributor), so it could be possible.

      She was used as evidence that Bill was a serial harasser for the Paula Jones trial, which was what Ken Starr went after when the CLintons were exonerated from Whitewater.
