Ex-Clinton lover loses lawsuit bid
news.com.au ^ | 10 January 2006

A FORMER lover of ex-US president Bill Clinton has lost her effort to revive a defamation case against his wife, Senator Hillary Clinton, and two of the former president's top aides.

Former cabaret singer Gennifer Flowers came to public attention during the 1992 presidential campaign when she described a 12-year affair with Clinton, who later acknowledged a relationship with her.

Ms Flowers charged that during the 1992 campaign Hillary Clinton had helped co-ordinate campaign attacks against her. She also said James Carville and George Stephanopoulos made defamatory statements about her.

She had said in the suit that Senator Clinton, Mr Carville and Mr Stephanopoulos falsely accused her of lying about the affair and of doctoring tape recordings of her telephone conversations with Bill Clinton.

She filed suit against the three in 1999. A Nevada appeals court dismissed the suit in 2003, and Ms Flowers appealed to the US 9th Circuit Court of Appeals to revive the legal action.

The 9th Circuit ruled yesterday that Ms Flowers named Senator Clinton too late in the suit, after the passage of a four-year limitation. "Thus, her claim against Clinton is barred," a three-judge panel wrote.

As for the top aides, the court said: "Flowers's failure to present evidence of actual malice is fatal to each claim against Carville and Stephanopoulos".

The 9th Circus Court should be over ruled. Again.

I don't have much sympathy for her. She used her looks to hook up with a powerful creep and then got what she could expect from such a man and his entourage.

On the other hand, I agree this was a foolish decision since it would wind up with the 9th circuit, a bunch of Clinton whores.

That girl will do anything to revive her singing career. As James Carville once said "Drag a Hundred Dollar bill through a trailer Park and you don't know what you are going to catch."

Same thing goes for lounge singers. Get on with your life. You knew what you were getting into.

I think she sued in Nevada because it has one of the longest statutes of limitations for defamation. And that is where she was living at the time she brought suit.

All these people are multiple-cousins dozens of times over. It's a wonder they don't all look exactly alike.

The old joke...

After the divorce, are the bride and groom still first cousins?

Not quite true...x42i never admitted a relationship....his answer, to the Flowers question in his Paula Jones depo was, he had sex with Flowers one time in 1977.

Yes, I believe the VRC comment came from Hillary right after the Monica Lewinsky story broke.

"I don't think Hillary cares much for Jennifer."

JF had a few unflattering comments about Hillary in her book, "Passion & Betrayal."
