In the Clinton-Lewinsky affair, there were no “innocent parties”.
Bill was old enough to know that management using his interns for sexual gratification was a gross violation of ethical business practices. With the issue of workplace harassment being part of the public discourse long before his election, he literally had no excuse for his conduct with a subordinate.
On the other hand…
That does not exonerate Monica for her role in the affair.
“I thought maybe, he’d notice me. And notice me he did.”
She was no babe in the woods here.
Whether or not there is any truth to the ‘Presidential Kneepads’ reference, Monica obviously knew Bill to be a married man… and didn’t care.
She had a ‘crush’ on him and made sure he noticed her.
Not only did she ‘run home and change back into’ the same green outfit she had been wearing the previous time he took special notice of her, but she also made sure Bill knew she was… ‘available’.
It happened on November 14, 1995, in the middle of the government shutdown when Lewinsky had been called in to help with the phones.
On that date there had been a surprise party for one of Clinton’s staffers, and at one point Lewinsky realized her thong was exposed while Clinton was near her in the room.
Lewinsky opted to keep her thong out as Clinton walked by, and a short while later when she walked by his office, Clinton smiled at her and motioned for her to come into the room.
She soon admitted to Clinton that she had a ‘crush’ on him, and not long after the two were kissing in the dark room.
Making out with Bill in the dark after she showed him her thong? What a surprise!
They were both, each for their own reasons, sexual aggressors in this exchange.
‘But I think in one way the moment we were actually in the back office for the first time the truth is I think it meant more to me the someone who other people desired, desired me.’
And somehow we’re supposed to pity her for everything she went through?
She rolled the dice in a high stakes game… and she crapped out.
Them’s the breaks.
What sympathy should she really expect just because Bill didn’t have his side-chick’s back when her world came crashing down?
