Don't Ever Forget What Happened The Last Time The Government Shut Down
• Unable to begin a new paying job, a 22-year-old female intern continued to work at the White House.
• Said intern’s “personal relationship” with President Bill Clinton began on November 15, 1995, the day after the government shutdown began.
• On that Wednesday evening, the intern, seizing the moment, told Clinton she “had a crush on him.” The 42nd President responded by accompanying the intern to a back study behind the Oval Office, where he kissed her.
• “Unclothed genital contact” would later occur, along with “kissing, hugging, touching, and oral sex on the person of the President, but not intercourse.”
