Paula Jones is a former Arkansas state employee who sued U.S. president Bill Clinton for sexual harassment. Jones was born in Lonoke, Arkansas. Similarly, she was the daughter of a minister in the Church of the Nazarene and raised within that congregation. The Paula Jones case provided the impetus for Independent Counsel Ken Starr. And that was to broaden his on-going investigation into Clinton’s pre-presidency financial dealings. Likewise, with the Whitewater Land Company, and resulted in Clinton’s impeachment in the House of Representatives and subsequent acquittal by the Senate on February 12, 1999.
Background of Jones v. Clinton
In a declaration sworn under penalty of felony, Jones alleged that, on May 8, 1991, while working on official business in her capacity. Similarly, as an employee of the Arkansas Industrial Development Commission (the “AIDC”). Moreover, she attended the Annual Governor’s Quality Conference at the Excelsior Hotel in Little Rock, Arkansas.
She claimed she kept quiet about the incident since 1994, when a David Brock story in The American Spectator magazine printed an account. Jones filed a sexual harassment suit against Clinton on May 6, 1994. And that was two days before the expiration of the three-year statute of limitations, and sought $750,000 in damages.
Susan Carpenter-McMillan, a California conservative commentator, became her press spokesperson. Carpenter-McMillan wasted no time bringing the issue to the press, calling Clinton “un-American”, a “liar”, and a “philanderer” on Meet the Press, Crossfire, Equal Time, Larry King Live, Today, The Geraldo Rivera Show, Burden of Proof, Hannity & Colmes, Talkback Live, and other shows. “I do not respect a man who cheats on his wife, and exposes his penis to a stranger,” she said.
In February 2016, Jones endorsed Donald Trump for the 2016 United States presidential election. That same week, she attended a rally for Trump held in Little Rock, Arkansas, where she asked for a selfie with him.
In October 2016, Jones joined Donald Trump for a press conference before the second 2016 Presidential Debate. And that was to air grievances against Hillary and Bill Clinton. The conference also included Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey, and Kathy Shelton.
