Clinton rape accuser fights IRS audit
May 31, 2000: Maybe it was just coincidence.
You go on national television and tell a secret you’ve kept for 22 years – that you were raped by the most-powerful man in the world, the current president of the United States – and you get a notice form the IRS that your business is going to be audited.
Maybe. But Juanita Broaddrick wasn’t buying it and she decided to fight back by suing the Clinton White House and the Justice Department for conducting a campaign to “smear and destroy her reputation.”
She was not alone – other Clinton critics had found themselves targeted by the IRS.
Paula Jones, Gennifer Flowers, former White House Travel Office Director Billy Dale and Elizabeth Ward Gracen have all accused the president of assault or harassment and were audited following their complaints. Dozens of Clinton’s political “enemies” also were audited during the 1990s, including the National Rifle Association, Citizens Against Government Waste, the Heritage Foundation, American Spectator, National Review and the Western Journalism Center, founded by WorldNetDaily Editor and CEO Joseph Farah.
