FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Dulles NOW Chapter
August 18, 1998
Dulles NOW filed an Amicus brief in support of Paula Jones' appeal pointing out that the alleged behavior of Governor Clinton may have constituted abuses of power. President Clinton has now admitted to conduct with an employee in the White House that is similar to the conduct alleged against him by Paula Jones. Ms. Jones has been prevented from pursuing her case, in part because of false statements made by the President and Monica Lewinsky. Dulles NOW believes Ms. Jones deserves another chance to make her case and to demand truthful responses from the President and others, and believes the "gag" order placed upon her case must be lifted.
Since last January, the White House has relentlessly attacked the credibility of fellow public servants such as Ms. Jones, Kathleen Willey and Linda Tripp. Even though the President knew these women were telling the truth, he allowed the White House attack teams to engage in savage personal onslaughts aimed at manipulating public opinion against them. It amounted to retaliation and abuse.
This public abuse of women, combined with the callous disregard for sexual harassment laws, has not only harmed the cause of women it has also damaged the fabric of the country. Therefore, Dulles NOW calls for the resignation of Mr. Clinton from the presidency, confident that the demonstrated strengths of this democracy and its institutions will ensure minimal disruption during the transition phase and that such move is in the interest of the nation.
