Which acquaintance of former President Bill Clinton sued unsuccessfully for defamation after news of her alleged relationship with the then-governor surfaced in tabloid newspapers?
A. Monica Lewinsky
C. Paula Jones
D. Kathleen Willey
E. Zsa Zsa Gabor
The correct answer is B. In Flowers v. Carville, a 9th Circuit Court ruled that Gennifer Flowers’ holding a press conference to discuss her story about an affair with the presidential candidate constituted a voluntary action on her part to “get involved,” thus inviting criticism, however harsh, from Clinton’s people.
