Washington: Paula Jones, a former Arkansas state employee, who once sued Bill Clinton for sexual harassment, has revealed that she is furious to see the former president campaigning for his wife.
“I can’t believe he’s got the nerve to do it,” she said. “I can’t believe he’s still going out there and showing his face. How can you go out there and talk to people like nothing has happened?”
Ms Jones accused Mr Clinton of propositioning her and exposing himself. The court eventually threw out her suit on the grounds that she failed to demonstrate damages.
Mr Clinton, who has denied her claims, reportedly paid her $850,000 in an out-of-court settlement, although Ms Jones says she only walked away with $151,000 after attorneys’ fees. Hillary Clinton stood by her husband despite the accusations. Ms Jones said she cannot believe Hillary is being sold as a good leader for women.
“That just makes me sick. She can’t be trusted,” Jones said. “I don’t see how they can believe that she is for women. She is for herself.”
Ms Jones said she does not hold Ms Hillary responsible for her husband’s alleged indiscretions, but “she is responsible for the cover up.”
