Clinton's Lawyer Decides Not to Explore Jones' Sex Life
U.S. President Bill Clinton's attorney has retracted his earlier plans to make Paula Jones' sexual history an issue in her sexual harassment case against the President. Lawyer Robert Bennett faced intense pressure to not pursue that type of case. U.S. Press Secretary Mike McCurry himself pointed out that President Clinton had signed a law making it harder to explore the sexual histories of alleged victims of sexual harassment. Patricia Ireland, President of the National Organization for Women, was pleased with the change in tactics and commented, "The result is the President's going to show leadership by not mounting this kind of attack against Paula Jones. I'm very pleased."
