On Monday, former president Bubba Clinton was on the Today Show to talk about his new novel “The President is Missing,”* written with James Patterson. When the interviewer with NBC News’ Craig Melvin asked about the Monica Lewinsky scandal in light of the #metoo movement, the former president lashed out, played the victim, and then admitted he never apologized to Ms. Lewinsky (video of the interview at the end of post).
Truth be told including Monica there are at least sixteen women that former president Bubba needs to call on the phone and personally apologize to.
The below are 16 different cases of women who accused former President Bubba Clinton of sexual assault or attempted assault. This doesn’t include the women Bubba had consensual affairs with such as Gennifer Flowers, or Sally Miller, only women he forced or tried to force to have sexual contact without their permission, or in the case of Monica used his position to seduce her. Each of the sixteen victims’ stories is condensed but their names are linked to web pages with more detailed versions of their statements/evidence:
Juanita Broaddrick claims she was raped by Bill Clinton and Hillary tried to silence her. “she says, he got her onto the bed, held her down forcibly and bit her lips. The sexual entry itself was not without some pain, she recalls, because of her stiffness and resistance. When it was over, she says, he looked down at her and said not to worry, he was sterile–he had had mumps when he was a child.”
Becky Brown was a nanny for Chelsea Clinton and the wife of L.D. Brown, an Arkansas state trooper. She claims he sexually harassed her in the mid-1980s. L.D. Brown made the allegation public in his 1999 book, “Crossfire: Witness in the Clinton Investigation,” writing, “Becky had been babysitting Chelsea and had already put her to bed. Bill, after getting a beer, found Becky watching television in the upstairs part of the Mansion. He slouched down next to Becky and offered her a beer. Incredibly, he began his ‘I’m so bad’ routine with Becky! I had seen him use it time and time again to get a woman to comfort him – comforting which he then manipulated into eventual sex. Becky got out of there in a hurry.” (L.D. Brown)
Helen Dowdy, the wife of Hillary Clinton’s cousin, claims she was groped by Bill Clinton at a Rodham family wedding in 1986. She told Jerry Oppenheimer, the author of State of a Union: Inside the Complex Marriage of Bill and Hillary Clinton (page 215) that Bubba groped her “up there.” She tried to pull away, but “he’s a big man.” She says she was eventually rescued when Hillary Clinton turned it into a three-person dance. “He was holding me very close, pulling me into him. … It was so inappropriate.”
Elizabeth Ward Gracen, 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 title. Gracen later told an interviewer that sex with Clinton was consensual. Her roommate Judy Stokes has said the ex-Miss Arkansas told her she was raped after the incident.
Sandra Allen James was pinned against a wall by the former president as he stuck his hand up her dress (Ms. James’ loud scream caused the Arkansas State Trooper outside the door to knock spoiling Bubba’s moment).
Paula Corbin Jones filed suit in 1994, alleging that Bill Clinton propositioned her and exposed himself to her in a Little Rock hotel room three years earlier when he was governor of Arkansas and she was a low-level state employee.
Carolyn Moffet a legal secretary in Little Rock who was invited to Bill’s hotel room after a fundraiser. When she arrived she discovered Bubba sitting on a couch only wearing a t-shirt. “When I went in, he was sitting on a couch, wearing only an undershirt. He pointed at his penis and told me to suck it. I told him I didn’t even do that for my boyfriend, and he got mad, grabbed my head and shoved it into his lap. I pulled away from him and ran out of the room,”
Eileen Wellstone, an English woman who said Mr. Clinton sexually assaulted her after she met him at a pub near Oxford University where Mr. Clinton was a student in 1969. Neither Ms. Wellstone nor her family wanted to pursue the case, and a report filed at the time by a State Department official was ignored by superiors. Apparently, the State Department didn’t want a Rhodes Scholar to have a rape charge.
Kathleen Willey told 60 Minutes that Bubba assaulted her in the White House. “he had his arms — they were tight around me, and he — he — he touched me, he touched my breasts with his hand, and, I — I — I — I was — I — I was just startled. And — then he — whispered — hehe — said in — in my ears that, “I — I’ve wanted to do this ever since I laid eyes on you.” And — I remember — I remember saying to him, “aren’t you afraid that somebody’s going to walk in here?” The — and, he said — he said, “no. No, I’m — no, I’m not.” And — and then — and — and then he took my hand, and he — and he put it on him. [On — on his genitals she says later]. And, that’s when I pushed away from him and — and decided it was time to get out of there.
Christy Zercher, an airline flight attendant on Mr. Clinton’s 1992 campaign plane, who said Mr. Clinton exposed himself, grabbed her breasts and made explicit remarks about oral sex. Ms. Zercher said later in an interview that White House attorney Bruce Lindsey tried to pressure her into not going public about the assault.
Sandra Allen James Former Washington-based political fundraiser. She says: Clinton invited her to his hotel room in 1991, pinned her against the wall and put his hand under her dress.
In 1972, when he was attending Yale (and dating Hillary) a 22-year-old woman told campus police at Yale University that she was sexually assaulted by Clinton, a law student at the college. No charges were filed, but retired campus policemen contacted by Capitol Hill Blue confirmed the incident. The woman, tracked down by Capitol Hill Blue in 2007, confirmed the incident, but declined to discuss it further and would not give permission to use her name. Also according to Capitol Hill Blue, “former Arkansas students confirmed that Clinton tried to force himself on them when he was a professor.”
Roger Morris wrote in “Partners In Power” that another unnamed victim accused Clinton of unwanted sexual advances: A young woman lawyer in Little Rock claimed that she was accosted by Clinton while he was attorney general and that when she recoiled he forced himself on her, biting and bruising her. Deeply affected by the assault, the woman decided to keep it all quiet for the sake of her own hard-won career and that of her husband. When the husband later saw Clinton at the 1980 Democratic Convention, he delivered a warning. “If you ever approach her,” he told the governor, “I’ll kill you.” Not even seeing fit to deny the incident, Bill Clinton sheepishly apologized and duly promised never to bother her again.
In the book, “Uncovering Clinton,” another woman, “the wife of a prominent Democrat” (who remained unnamed), accused Clinton of sexual abuse in 1996. Clinton started getting physical, trying to kiss her, touching her breasts. The woman said she was stunned. She had no idea how to respond. “I’ve never had a man take advantage of me like that” … As Clinton pressed himself on her, she said, she resisted–and finally pushed him away. What happened after that? I asked. Clinton turned away, she said. She hesitated, and she said softly and with apparent discomfort, “I think he finished the job himself.”
Lt. Col. Robert “Buzz” Patterson wrote a book about Clinton called, Dereliction of Duty in which he accounted yet another victim of sexual abuse by the then-president. He wrote that a female stewardess on Air Force One complained that Clinton “sexually molested” and “cornered” her on the flight. Per Patterson, the woman only “wanted an apology.”
Then, of course, there is Monica Lewinsky. Technically this one was consensual, but IMHO when a married President of the United States takes advantage of a 21-year-old intern…it’s seems pretty close to statutory rape. But along with the affair, the media and the Democratic Party joined with Hillary Clinton in an effort to destroy Lewinsky.
