Bill Clinton’s Record of Mistreating Women Could Be a Big Liability for Hillary

Bill Clinton has a long and questionable history with women.  From the infamous Monica Lewinsky case to the lesser-known Juanita Broaddrick, Bill can’t seem to keep it in his pants.  Clinton went so far as to pay alleged victim Paula Jones $850,000 in a 1998 settlement.

However, the former president’s sexual misconduct doesn’t end with just allegations. In 1992, Gennifer Flowers said she had a 12-year sexual relationship with Clinton, which he of course denied. He would later admit in 1998 under sworn testimony that he actually did have a sexual relationship with Flowers during his time as Arkansas governor.

Then there was Dolly Kyle Browning and Elizabeth Ward Gracen. Browning is an old high school classmate of Bill Clinton, who under a sworn declaration in 1998 stated that she and the former president had a 20-year off-and-on sexual relationship that spanned from the 1970’s until 1992. Gracen, the 1982 Miss America winner and actress from the TV series Highlander said she had a one night stand with Bill Clinton in 1982. He never confirmed or denied Browning’s accusations, but did denthose made by Gracen.

What is most compelling about all of Bill’s admittances and denials is the fact that he was married during all of this. One has to wonder if Hillary was aware. If she was not, at what point did she become aware and why has she never spoken up and spoken out for those who have accused her husband of rape. Some critics allege Hillary was not only aware but intimidated her husband’s accusers. 

Such an action would not exactly be out of character for Clinton who was revealed to have laughed about her successful defense of a child rapist in 1975. After a recording of her levity was unearthed, she has never apologized for her ghastly sense of humor.

On September 14, 2015, Hillary tweeted, “To every survivor of sexual assault… You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed we’re with you.”

Despite her and her husband’s past, however, Clinton actually has tried to address the sexual violence in a very generic way with a tweet stating, “Every survivor of sexual assault deserves to be heard, believed, and supported.” That tweet had a link to Hillary’s issues page on her campaign website titled — “Campus Sexual Assault: It’s not enough to condemn campus sexual assault. We need to end it.”

On that page, Clinton shares her plan to end campus sexual assault. At the top of the page, there is a quote from Hillary stating, “Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have a right to be heard. You have a right to be believed, and we’re with you.”

That quote is rather problematic since it doesn’t seem to apply to the women who have accused her husband. During a campaign event in December of 2015 a woman in attendance asked, “You say that all rape victims should be believed, but would you say that about Juanita Broaddrick, Kathleen Willey and Paul Jones? Should we believe them as well?”

“Well, I would say that everybody should be believed at first until they are disbelieved on evidence,” Clinton responded.

Clinton then rested the microphone in her lap and smiled. The issue with her response is that Paula Jones is the only woman to have actually filed suit against Bill. The other two have not, so their allegations haven’t been proven or disproven.

Clinton’s page also states she has led efforts to address violence against women her entire career. Her attitude toward the accusers of her husband seems all but indifferent which isn’t synonymous with someone who has led efforts to address violence against women. 

This is a serious problem for Hillary Clinton’s campaign and the more she has Bill Clinton on the trail stumping for her, the more her campaign will be demanded to respond to these accusations. The mood of the country is changing as it relates to sexual assault allegations.  American’s are no longer willing to overlook these types of attacks.  

If Hillary Clinton is to be hailed as a champion of women’s rights and  believes all accusers should be listened to, this standard should also apply to the women who have accused her husband. If not, Hillary should be made to answer for the double standard.
