- Although the White House has successfully
intimidated NBC News into deep sixing an explosive interview with an Arkansas
woman who says Bill Clinton raped her 20 years ago, Capitol Hill Blue has
confirmed that the charge is but one of many allegations of sexual assault
by the President.
- A five month investigation into the President's
questionable sexual history reveal incidents that go back as far as Clinton's
college days, with more than a dozen women claiming his sexual appetites
leave little room for the word ''no.''
- Juanita Broaddrick, an Arkansas woman
who worked on Bill Clinton's campaign when he was attorney general, told
NBC's Lisa Meyers two weeks ago she was raped by Clinton. NBC, under intense
pressure by the White House, shelved the interview. The White House also
threatened Fox News Tuesday after it reported the story.
- But Broaddrick's story is only one account
of many sexual assaults by Clinton. Among the other incidents:
- A 1969 charge by a 19-year-old English
woman who said Clinton assaulted her after she met him at a pub near the
Oxford University campus where the future President was a student. A retired
State Department employee, who asked not to be identified, confirmed this
week that he spoke with the family of the girl and filed a report with
his superiors. Clinton admitted having sex with the girl, but claimed it
was consensual. The victim's family declined to pursue the case;
- In 1972, a 22-year-old woman told campus
police at Yale University that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton, who
w as a law student at the college. No charges were filed;
- In 1974, a female student at the University
of Arkansas complained that then-law professor Bill Clinton tried to prevent
her from leaving his office during a conference. She said he groped her
and forced his hand inside her blouse. Clinton claimed the student ''came
on'' to him and she left the school shortly after the incident.
- Broaddrick, a volunteer in Clinton's
attorney general campaign, said he raped her in 1978;
- From 1978-1980, during Clinton's first
term as governor of Arkansas, state troopers assigned to protect the governor
reported seven complaints from women who said Clinton forced, or attempted
to force, himself on them sexually.
- Elizabeth Ward, the Miss Arkansas who
won the Miss America crown in 1982, told friends she was forced by Clinton
to have sex with him shortly after she won her state crown. Last year,
Ward, who is now married with the last name of Gracen, told an interviewer
she did have sex with Clinton but said it was consensual. She later recanted
that interview and said had been threatened by Clinton supporters into
claiming the sex was consensual.
- Paula Corbin, an Arkansas state worker,
filed a sexual harassment case against Clinton after an encounter in a
Little Rock hotel room where the then-governor exposed himself and demanded
oral sex. Clinton settled the case with Jones recently with a cash payment.
- A former Washington, DC, political fundraiser
says Presidential candidate-to-be Clinton invited her to his hotel room
during a political trip to the nation's capital in 1991, pinned her against
the wall and stuck his hand up her dress. She says she screamed loud enough
for the Arkansas State Trooper stationed outside the hotel suite to bang
on the door and ask if everything was all right, at which point Clinton
released her and she fled the room. When she reported the incident to her
boss, he advised her to keep her mouth shut if she wanted to keep working.
The woman has since married and left Washington.
- Kathleen Willey, a White House volunteer,
reported that Clinton grabbed her, fondled her breast and pressed her hand
against his genitals during an Oval Office meeting in November, 1993. Willey,
who told her story in a 60 Minutes interview, became a target of a White
House-directed smear campaign after she went public.
- In an interview with Capitol Hill Blue
this week, the retired State Department employee said he believed the story
of the young English woman who said Clinton raped her in 1969.
- ''There was no doubt in my mind that
this young woman had suffered severe emotional trauma,'' he said. ''But
we were under tremendous pressure to avoid the embarrassment of having
a Rhodes Scholar charged with rape. I filed a report with my superiors
and that was the last I heard of it.''
- Capitol Hill Blue also spoke with the
former Washington fundraiser who confirmed the incident, but said she would
not go public because anyone who does so is destroyed by the Clinton White
- ''My husband and children deserve better
than that,'' she said.
- The other encounters were confirmed with
more than 30 interviews with retired Arkansas state employees, former state
troopers and former Yale and University of Arkansas students. Like others,
they refused to go public because of fears of retaliation from the Clinton
- Likewise, the mainstream media has shied
away from the Broaddrick story. Only The Drudge Report and other Internet
news sites have actively pursued it.
- The White House did not return calls
for comment Tuesday night.
