Why did Hillary lose the election? Because she lost her own group, White women, by 10 points. Too many women remembered her record of tormenting women her husband had seduced or assaulted. That is the main inference from this book by presidential insider Doug Wead. He details many other Clinton scandals as well.
--- Hillary led the effort to smear and terrorize women who talked about Bill. At one point, she was tracking 26 "bimbos". She told her operatives to destroy their credibility completely.
--- All the women were denounced as unstable. Hillary said they were part of a "vast
rightwing conspiracy," though most had been forced to testify. Bill's IRS audited most of
--- GENNIFER FLOWERS: Bill denied her story of a 12-year affair. The Clintons warned
broadcasters not to carry it. One show was cancelled the day after Flowers was on it.
Hillary said she wanted to verbally "crucify" Flowers. But Flowers had a tape of Bill telling
her to lie. He finally admitted having sex with her. In 2004 when public memory had dimmed, he said it was only once -- a lie he thought would work at that point.
--- SALLY PERDUE: The former Miss Arkansas said that during their affair, Bill told her
Hillary was a lesbian. Liberals attacked Perdue's story, but Arkansas troopers confirmed
Bill's trips to her house. A Clinton agent threatened to break Perdue's legs or harm her
children, but offered a job if she kept quiet. Her car was vandalized; she found a shotgun
shell on the seat; later the back window was shattered. A letter warned that she could die
like Marilyn Monroe. Under pressure, her boss fired her. Perdue fled to China, where the
Clintons had her home raided, claiming she was a fugitive drug dealer. In 2016, back in the
US, Perdue again received anonymous phone calls and was followed while jogging -- no doubt to protect Hillary's presidential candidacy. Three more Miss Arkansas said they had had affairs with Bill.
--- JUANITA BROADDRICK, a Clinton supporter, claimed Bill had raped her and Hillary had
threatened her. Broaddrick's friend confirmed her shaken state after being with Bill. NBC
interviewed Broaddrick, but cut her reference to Hillary.
--- PAULA JONES: Bill assaulted this state-employee and demanded oral sex, but she managed to escape. Refusing to be victimized, Jones sued him. Bill scoffed at her claim; feminists scorned her as trailer trash and ridiculed her appearance. But a trooper admitted luring Jones to Bill's hotel room, and her description of Bill's "beet red" face matched Willey's (below). Bill eventually settled for $850,000. He was also fined $91,202 for lying in the
litigation, and disbarred for five years.
--- KATHLEEN WILLEY was a Clinton donor and organizer. Bill assaulted her in a hallway by
the Oval Office. Her account matched those of other women. While she awaited deposition,
Clinton agents questioned her friends. Her tires were punctured three times. Her postman
told her a creepy man had asked directions to her house. Her cat disappeared. A strange
man threatened her, mentioning the cat. Later she found its skull on her porch.
--- MONICA LEWINSKY: Bill denied having sex with the young White House intern till his
semen was found on her dress. (The Starr report includes oral-anal sex.) Hillary said Monica
was "a narcissistic loony tune" who forced herself on Bill.
--- For her 2016 run, Hillary's operatives bragged of corrupting the Wikipedia articles on the
women. At the Convention, Bill recounted his all-consuming devotion to Hillary -- a charade to fool voters too young to remember the facts. It didn't work.
