From the Paper:

"The Bill Clinton and Paula Jones fiasco hit the papers as the biggest scandal of the year if not the decade. There were threats of presidential impeachment and the media had a field day with reports of sex, mystery and harassment. (Squitieri; 1999)
"As Paula Jones accused the President of asking her for sexual favors while she worked as an internee a court case was filed and the President was taken to court. The hundreds of pages of depositions and legal arguments released by attorneys for Paula Jones detailed a simple claim about how her rejection of then-Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton's sexual advances damaged her job. (AP Online ; 04-21-2000)
"Disputing a central tenet of Clinton's argument that her suit should be dismissed, Jones said that, following an unpleasant encounter with Clinton in 1991, she was mistreated at work in ways large and small. She said she was reassigned to an Arkansas state job with fewer responsibilities, discouraged from seeking a better job, constantly watched by supervisors and singled out as the only woman not given flowers on Secretaries Day."
