We’re back at looking into the Clintons. We’re continuing through 1993 and finally heading into 1994 where the Paula Jones case came to light. It’s amazing with all of the unfortunate connections suicided people have had to the Clintons and their scandals that nobody seems to be paying much attention.
On August 15, 1993, Jon Parnell Walker, a Washington-based Resolution Trust Corp. official, “fell” from the top of the Lincoln Towers Building causing his death. In early 1992, Walker approved a field audit of Madison Guaranty, the failed savings-and-loan run by Clinton’s Whitewater business partner, Jim McDougal.
A year later he was dead.
On September 10, 1993, Stanley Heard, Chairman of the National Chiropractic Health Care Advisory Committee, died with his attorney Steve Dickson in a small plane crash. Dr. Heard, in addition to serving on Clinton‘s advisory council, personally treated Clinton’s mother, stepfather, and brother.
On September 26, 1993, an unidentified individual in a white Chevy pulled up to Jerry Parks car and opened fire on the man.
“The occupant of the Chevrolet then fired approximately ten shots based upon the evidence we found at the scene,” said Doc Holladay in 1993, back then as a spokesperson for the Little Rock Police Department.
Shortly before 7:00 Sunday night, police found the bullet-riddled body of a middle-aged Roland man lying outside his car near the intersection of Chenal Parkway and Highway 10 in west Little Rock,” Channel 7’s Geoff Morrell reported in a KATV news broadcast on September 26, 1993.
Parks’ family reported that shortly before his death, they were being followed by unknown persons, and their home had been broken into. Parks had been the Chief of Security for Clinton’s national campaign headquarters in Little Rock. He had been compiling a dossier on Clinton’s illicit activities. The dossier was stolen.
November 20, 1993, Edward Willey, a Clinton fundraiser, was found dead deep in the woods of Virginia with a gunshot wound to the head on the same day that his wife, Kathleen, claimed Bill Clinton groped her in the oval office.
Ed was involved in several Clinton fundraising events.
Kathleen, then a White House volunteer, was prompted to seek a meeting with President Clinton to plead for a paying job due to Ed’s dire financial situation. She alleges that the meeting ended when Bill cornered her in a private passageway and sexually assaulted her.
Kathleen became more well known in 97 after lawyers for Paula Jones, another Clinton accuser, gave her name to a reporter. She was scheduled to become one of only three witnesses in the Clinton impeachment trial until some members of the House and Senate refused to allow her to testify.
Willey told WND the break-in at her house reminded her of the widely reported incident 10 years ago in which she claimed she was threatened near her present Richmond-area home by a “jogger” just two days before she was to testify against President Clinton in the Jones case.
“I’ve seen too much evidence regarding other people who have been involved with the Clintons,” she told WND.
She speculates: “I have no idea how anyone other than the Clintons would know that Ed might have carried cash in briefcases. So why would he be killed? Because he was carrying illegal money? That’s probably not enough reason. But what if, in his desperation, Ed had ‘illegally borrowed’ from the campaign?”
“When I asked if the burns were indicative of a left-handed person committing suicide, [the examiner] said no. The room started to spin, and I went into the bathroom and threw up. By the time she sent me the full report, though, she’d reconsidered, saying it could be consistent with a left-handed person. She suggested that he held the gun with both hands but pulled the trigger with his right. That’s exactly how Vince Foster is said to have killed himself.”
The Paula Jones Case came to light in 1994. Paula Jones claims that on May 8, 1991, while working as a state employee of the IADC, she attended the Annual Governor’s Quality Conference at the Excelsior Hotel in Little Rock. She says that she was asked to report to then Arkansas Governor Clinton’s hotel room where he propositioned himself to her.
It’s her claim that she kept quiet about what happened until 1994 when David Brock’s story in The American Spectator printed her account of what happened. Jones’s lawyers filed a sexual harassment suit against Clinton on May 6, 1994, just 3 days shy of the expiration of the three-year statute of limitations, and sought $750,000 in damages.
The Paula Jones case came shortly before Clinton’s impeachment and acquittal. The Clintons were charged with perjury and obstruction of justice in the case.
Jones’s lawyers decided to show to the court a pattern of behavior by Clinton that involved his allegedly repeatedly becoming sexually involved with state or government employees. Jones’s lawyers, therefore, subpoenaed women they suspected Clinton had affairs with, one of whom was Monica Lewinsky.
In his deposition for the Jones lawsuit, Clinton denied having “sexual relations” with Monica Lewinsky. Based on testimony provided by Linda Tripp, which identified the existence of a blue dress with Clinton’s semen on it, Kenneth Starr concluded that Clinton’s sworn testimony was false and perjurious. Eventually, the court dismissed the Paula Jones harassment lawsuit, on the grounds that Jones failed to demonstrate any damages. However, while the dismissal was on appeal, Clinton entered into an out-of-court settlement by agreeing to pay Jones $850,000.
We’ll be discussing Monica Lewinsky and that scandal a bit further down the road.
