Bill Clinton: The Paula Jones Lawsuit Essay, Research Paper

Paula Jones’ Lawsuit Against Bill Clinton

A lawsuit has been filed by Paula Jones, a clerk for the Arkansas Industrial

Development Commission, for sexual harassment by then Governor Clinton. In her

lawsuit, Paula Jones states that Clinton told an Arkansas State trooper to

escort her to a private hotel room where she claims that she was sexually

harassed. There are two sides to this case: Clinton states that he did not do

it and that he has never seen this person before. Clinton’s lawyers say that

forcing the president of the United States to answer to a lawsuit will distract

him for his already hard and time-consuming job. On the other hand, Paula Jones

says that “no one is above the law,” not even the President of the United States.

What she wants most is for the truth to come out and for her story to be heard.

“In no way is she looking for her fifteen minutes of fame,” Jones says. The

case is going before the Supreme Court to decide whether to reverse the decision

of the two lower courts and delay the sexual harrassment lawsuit until President

Clinton leaves office. It could be months before the verdict from the Supreme

Court will be announced. I believe that the case should be held at a later date

when President Clinton is no longer in office. It takes away from his job which

is to run the United States of America. Fifteen years ago, the Supreme Court

blocked a damage suit against Richard Nixon with a five to four vote finding

that the president is immune from being suied for his official acts. If the

president gets in trouble, the whole nation is also in trouble because after all

we did elect him. Our confidence in our political leaders will suffer, and out

system of government will be impacted negatively. If Paula Jones is allowed to

sue the president, then others may follow, creating an even greater impact on

the president and his duties. This would be especially unfortunate if the

president did not commit the crime of which he is accused. The president should

be immune from being sued until he is out of office so the he can continue to

run our great nation without the extra worries.
