RAND PAUL REMINDS AMERICA "BILL CLINTON ABUSED YOUNG GIRL"
The Christian Science Monitor frets up a storm with this report:
"US Sen. Rand Paul ( has made) repeated references to the Monica Lewinsky scandal that nearly did in Bill Clinton lo these 16 years ago...."
Mr. Paul brought it up on NBC's "Meet the Press" two weeks ago.
"He took advantage of a girl that was 20 years old and an intern in his office," Paul told host David Gregory. "There is no excuse for that, and that is predatory behavior."
On Newsmax TV Thursday, Paul - reportedly considering a presidential run himself - tried to connect Clinton's past to 2016 front-runner Hillary Rodham Clinton.
"What if that unsavory character is your husband?" Paul asked. "What if that unsavory character is Bill Clinton raising money for people across the country, and what if he were someone that was guilty of sexual harassment and inappropriate behavior at the workplace - which, obviously, having sex with an intern at the office is inappropriate by any standard."
Then he came back to it in a pre-taped C-SPAN interview to be broadcast Sunday.
Said Paul: "The Democrats can't say, 'We're the great defenders of women's rights in the workplace and we will defend you against some kind of abusive boss that uses their position of authority to take advantage of a young women' when the leader of their party, the leading fundraiser in the country, is Bill Clinton, who was a perpetrator of that kind of sexual harassment. Anybody who wants to take money from Bill Clinton or have a fundraiser has a lot of explaining to do."
