Fashion titan and Bill Clinton donor sued for 'herpes' date with woman he met online: suit
NY Post ^ | 4/6/13 | JAMIE SCHRAM and REBECCA HARSHBARGER

A fashion-industry titan and top donor to President Bill Clinton met a woman on Match.com, lavishly wined and dined her before she agreed to have unprotected sex — and infected her with herpes, she claims in a new lawsuit.

...

The date went well, as Simon regaled her with anecdotes about his relationship to the ex-president, she says.

“He told me that he had just gotten back from a lunch with Clinton; he is a close personal friend with Bill Clinton,” she said, and records, in fact, show he shelled out at least $1 million to Clinton’s foundation.

Simon, she said, claimed he had lunch with the former president earlier that day at Candles 79 on the Upper East Side.

“Clinton likes to eat organic because he has a heart condition,” she said he told her.

...

“He picked me up in an Audi A9,” she said. “He had a driver. He said, ‘I’ll bring my Bentley the next time.’

...

Back at Simon’s apartment, the two became intimate. But before bedding the fashion mogul, the unnamed woman asked Simon whether or not he had any STDs. Simon insisted he was clean, and claimed he had undergone regular tests, according to the lawsuit.

“We had sex unprotected,” the woman admitted, claiming that she was disease-free at the time of the encounter.

About two weeks later, she found out she had herpes, she said.

Sure, it's probably unfair, but I love the way the Post makes this herpes story a story about Bill Clinton.

“Sexual torts” is one of the new frontiers in personal injury litigation.

infected her with herpes . . . The date went well

Perhaps this makes sense to journalists and leftists, but I find it hard to combine those two concepts.

You can hose them down and dress them up, but dirty hippies are still the same on the inside — literally and figuratively.

I’m sure the Post will hear from Slick’s lawyers on this. LOL

Last week or so, I saw an article here on FR that said there were more than 110 million cases of “veneral diseases” in the US. The term, “STD” was not used although “STI” [sexually transmitted infections] was used. First time I’ve seen this latter usage. Still, one third or so of the US population has an STD. Beyond sad and downright shameful.

The alleged victim conceded that she should not have had unprotected sex.

“I absolutely should have used a condom. I let my guard down.”

Uummm, not quite sure how a condom would have fit her....

She should have run when she heard the name Clinton.

Paling around with a Clinton associate or donor or whatever should have been a red flag to this woman. These people lie.

It is actually higher than 1/3....it is lurposely underreported just like the unnemployment rate. They purposely leave out alimony and child support from the STD rate!

Fact: 99% of people with genital herpes are Democrats.

“Uummm, not quite sure how a condom would have fit her....”

Holding it really tightly between her knees would have been a good start.

The real news here is that there is “a fashion-industry titan”, who isn’t gay.
