Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 10, 2005
Bill Clinton rose to the White House in part claiming to be a supporter of womenÂs rights, but a shocking new book claims to document a pattern of disturbing attacks against women that renders the former PresidentÂs claim hollow.
In "Their Lives: The Women Targeted by the Clinton Machine" (World Ahead Publishing, $25.95, ISBN 0974670138), author Candice E. Jackson documents how Bill Clinton used his political power to harass, intimidate, and terrorize women who got in his way. Whether it was assembling a smear team to attack a grief-stricken widow, threatening a reporter for her research into an Arkansas health care scandal, or hiring private investigators to bully an ex-flame's family members, Jackson says that Clinton showed no reluctance to go after any woman who inconvenienced his political career.
"This pattern of cold-blooded willingness by Clinton, his wife, and their inner circle to do anything to maintain power is clear," claims Jackson, an attorney and commentator who is also a recovering victim of domestic assault.
"Their Lives," which the author says fills in missing chapters from the 950 page "My Life," debuts in stores on May 31, 2005, the same day as the paperback version of Clinton's memoir. This book features an in-depth look at eight women who crossed paths with the so-called "Man from Hope" - seven former objects of desire as well as his wife, Senator Hillary Rodham Clinton.
Drawn from first-hand interviews and hundreds of sources, the book promises to counter Clinton's recent efforts to rehabilitate his legacy, although it does not focus on the morality of ClintonÂs philandering but rather his willingness to wield his political power against his victims.
The book's publication has been hailed by the women whose story it profiles. Clinton sexual harassment accuser Kathleen Willey praises the book as "the most accurate portrayal...of the true nightmare Bill and Hillary put me through." Alleged Clinton rape victim Juanita Broaddrick says "Their Lives" is "a complete chronological account."
Commentator and author David Horowitz says, "This book connects the political to the personal in a way no one has done before. It is a must read for anyone interested in the history of our age."
"Bill and Hillary Clinton showed no reluctance to do whatever it took to get the job done," Jackson says in speaking of Washington's most powerful couple. "It's important to tell the stories of the women they targeted - Americans need to know this side of the Clintons before Hillary asks us to send her back to the Oval Office."
