Paula JonesPaula Corbin Jones (born Paula Rosalee Corbin on September 17, 1966 in Lonoke, Arkansas) was a former Arkansas state employee who sued President Bill Clinton for sexual harassment.
According to her story, in 1991 she was escorted to the hotel room of Clinton, then governor of Arkansas, where he crudely propositioned her. She kept quiet about the incident until 1994, when a David Brock story in American Spectator told a story about an Arkansas employee named Paula offering to be Clinton's girlfriend. Jones filed a sexual harrassment suit against Clinton in May 1994.
The lawsuit was dismissed and Jones settled with Clinton for $850,000. The testimony in the suit brought up other Clinton affairs, and led directly to the Monica Lewinsky scandal and Clinton's 1998 impeachment. Jones now claims she was victimized both by Clinton and his Republican opponents.
