Is a tape of the former presidential intern trying to seduce Bill Clinton really circulating nearly 15 years after their affair?
UNCONFIRMED: Though an often credible tabloid says it has it
According to the Daily Mail, RadarOnline and other outlets, the National Enquirer has obtained an alleged sex tape of former presidential intern Monica Lewinsky trying to seduce Bill Clinton a few months after their affair ended. In this case, however, "tape" refers only to an audio message, so there's apparently no video to go along with it.
Tabloid claims to have new Lewinsky-Clinton audio
"The Enquirer reported that the tape — and begging love letters Lewinsky wrote to Clinton — were obtained by a cleaner who was hired by friends of Lewinsky's," reports the Mail. "'I was supposed to shred everything in late 1998, but for some reason I kept this material,'" the cleaner told the Enquirer.
The reason why the Mail and others are reporting this rather than the Enquirer itself is unclear. Also, for those worrying about the credibility of the notorious tabloid, remember that it had the story of John Edwards' love child years before anyone else.
Radar appears to have heard the nearly four-minute tape, and excerpts show that it consists mainly of Lewinsky, then 24, trying to convince Clinton to see her again. She reportedly gives him the option of either meeting in his office or at her home.
"Maybe we could go over and watch a movie together and just have kind of, I don't know, boxed dinners or something like that," she reportedly says on the tape.
