Sexual Harassment

Monica Lewinski is back in the news and it is now coming out that some in the media aided the Clinton's in making her the villain in the scandal that led to the impeachment of the President. http://washington.cbslocal.com/2014/05/16/letterman-i-feel-bad-about-my-role-in-humiliating-lewinsky/

Amazing how things turn around, I don't think that Clinton should have been impeached for  his affair and the cover-up that ensued, but he should have resigned or at the very least apologized for his actions and volunteered to enter sexual harassment training.  To this day Bill and Hilary act and talk as if Monica was the villain of the piece.  If what he did was not sexual harassment then the term has no meaning.  The fact that those in the media and others, some who call themselves feminists, defended him and continue to lionize him is the real tragedy of this whole episode.  Clinton's actions in this instance, and this was not the only such instance in his life, set back the cause of equality of women in the work place and led to an atmosphere where women continue to receive unequal pay and are derided if they act like men when they are put in positions of power, take note New :York Times.

At one time I oversaw FOIA at a Federal agency, having to forward requests to the White House for review must impose a tremendous burden on both requesters and agency personnel.
