Monica Lewinsky Scandal Referred to by Rand Paul

The Republican Rand Paul referred to the Monica Lewinsky scandal of the 90s as an example of former President Bill Clinton’s predatory habits. He said that if Hillary Clinton returned to office as the first female president, her husband would get another chance to assuage his predatory ways with women.

Rand Paul was interviewed recently and he lashed out at the Clintons. Paul is a potential 2016 GOP presidential nominee. Although he said Hillary was not to be blamed for anything, he reserved his ire for her husband Bill whom he accused of sexual predatory behavior. 

The Republican spoke of how while he was in the White House, Clinton used internees such as Monica Lewinsky who fell into his trap. He said that Hillary was innocent but with her possible return to political office her husband would get a second chance at satisfying his older instincts. The issue was womanizing. And Rand Paul spoke his mind. 

"The Democrats, one of their big issues is they have concocted and said Republicans are committing a war on women," Kentucky senator Paul said on NBC's "Meet The Press" Sunday. “One of the workplace laws and rules that I think are good is that bosses should not prey on young interns in their office. And I think really the media seems to have given President Clinton a pass on this. He took advantage of a girl (Monica Lewinsky) that was 20 years old and an intern in his office. There is no excuse for that, and that is predatory behavior….. Then they (Democrats) have the gall to stand up and say, ‘Republicans are having a war on women.’ ”

Rand Paul furthermore said that the media virtually gave a free pass to Clinton in the 90s. However, the facts speak otherwise. Clinton was hounded by the media to the point of super-saturation at the time of his impeachment. And the familial damage that affected him was not any less either. 

Paul added, “It’s not Hillary’s fault, but it is a factor in judging Bill Clinton in history. Sometimes it’s hard to separate one from the other.”

Senator Rand Paul especially pointed out the contradiction in the words of the Democrats. He referred to their accusation of a “war on women” by the Republicans. The Republican senator said this was hypocrisy since that man from their own side was a great skirt chaser. In other words, Bill Clinton came in for quite some criticism from a man who claims to hold the moral high ground.
