FLASHBACK: Clinton accused of 1978 hotel rape:

Juanita Broaddrick, who now runs a nursing-home business in Arkansas, told the Wall Street Journal that Mr Clinton raped her in the Camelot Hotel in Little Rock in 1978, when he was the state attorney-general.

The newspaper reports that Mr Clinton persuaded Mrs Broaddrick to have coffee with him in her hotel room during a conference of nursing home administrators in 1978. She alleges that he then forced her on to the bed, where he held her down, bit her lips and raped her.

When it was over, Mrs Broaddrick claims, Mr Clinton told her that she should not worry because he was sterile due to a bout of childhood mumps.

Mrs Broaddrick is not directly quoted in the Journal’s account of the alleged rape but in response to Mr Clinton’s sterility claim she said: “As though that was the thing on my mind – I wasn’t thinking about pregnancy or about anything. I felt paralysed and was starting to cry.”

She added: “This is the part that always stays in my mind – the way he put on his sunglasses. Then he looked at me and said ‘You better put some ice on that’. Then he left.”

Norma Rogers, a friend of Mrs Broaddrick, told the Journal that she found the alleged victim in a state of shock. In reported speech, she is said to have alleged that Mrs Broaddrick’s lips were discoloured and swollen to twice their normal size and the crotch of her tights was torn.

“She just stayed on the bed and kept repeating ‘I can’t believe what happened’,” Mrs Rogers said.

Since it looks like the Dems are rolling out that whole “War on Women” theme again.
