In 1999, Juanita Broaddrick accused then-President Bill Clinton of raping her in a hotel room while campaigning as governor of Arkansas in 1978. She is now speaking out against her alleged rapist in an effort to educate the American people about the Clinton’s abusive history with women.
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73....it never goes away.— Juanita Broaddrick (@atensnut) January 6, 2016
Was dreading seeing my abuser on tv campaign trail for enabler wife......but his physical appearance reflects ghosts of past are catching up— Juanita Broaddrick (@atensnut) January 5, 2016
The former nursing home administrator reveals, “I’ve been quiet for too long, and now with the possibility of [Hillary Clinton] being the Democratic nominee and possibly president, I feel the need to get involved.”
She also condemned Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for covering up for her husband’s misdemeanors in the past, and thinks it is ironic that Clinton was the forerunner in a recent campaign ad that states women have the right to be believed if they say they have been sexually abused.
She criticized the former secretary of state on social media, slamming the politician for her bigoted views.
"To every survivor of sexual assault...You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed. We're with you." —Hillary— Hillary Clinton (@HillaryClinton) September 14, 2015
Thoroughly disgusting--Hillary's comments on rape. Shame on you, Hillary, shame on you!!— Juanita Broaddrick (@atensnut) September 15, 2015
Broaddrick has nothing but praise for “heckler” Katherine Prudhomme-O’Brien for confronting Clinton on her husband’s sordid past and claims of sexual assault against several women, including Juanita.
The allegations of the former president’s scandals have been making headlines for the past few days. At a campaign stop at New Hampshire, another audience member questioned Clinton about the words spoken in her campaign ad and cross-questioned whether her husband’s past accusers were to be believed as well. In reply, Clinton said, “Well, I would say that everyone should be believed at first until they are disbelieved based on evidence."
Paula Jones also accused the ex-president of sexually harassing her in 1993. Her lawsuit was dismissed but Clinton agreed to pay $850,000 in settlement. He, however, did not plead guilty to the charge and stated he only agreed to pay to put the matter behind him for good.
