Pair sell web details of Clinton 'trysts'

Gennifer Flowers and Paula Jones are offering internet viewers lurid details of encounters they claim they had with former US president Bill Clinton for £1 (€1.2) a pop.

The women, who gained notoriety in the early 1990s, have created a website offering videos of their thoughts on Mr Clinton, his wife Hillary and other matters. Each video segment is available for 1.99 dollars.

“It’s a way we can get our story out there in our own words, without someone making their own interpretations or corrections,” Ms Jones said.

During the 1992 presidential race, Ms Flowers claimed to have had a 12-year affair with then-candidate and Arkansas governor Mr Clinton. Mr Clinton initially denied the allegation, but later, during his deposition in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case, acknowledged a single sexual encounter with Ms Flowers.

Ms Jones accused Mr Clinton of sexual harassment, saying he made an unwelcome sexual advance in 1991 in a Little Rock hotel room while he was Arkansas governor and she was a state employee. Her lawsuit set in motion the events that led to the impeachment of Mr Clinton.

Yesterday both Ms Flowers and Ms Jones walked down a manicured avenue to the Clinton Presidential Library in Little Rock, Arkansas, and chatted with an interviewer from the syndicated television programme Extra.
