Will the insider story from a former Clinton White House aide be covered by the mainstream media?
Kathleen Willey, is a former White House Aide who has accused then president Bill Clinton sexually groping her in the Oval Office the day she found out her husband was found dead in a park, (suicide similar to Vice Foster).
Her new book, Target: Caught in the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton, contains riviting testimony and stark revelations on the Clintons has been released today. The book definitely has some negative effects on Hillary Rodham Clinton’s and Obama’s 2008 Presidential ticket.
Ms. Willey’s book contains repulsive details that could put a dent in Sen. Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign, including accusations of campaign finance violations and new descriptions about harassment and threats by the Clintons and their associates. Willey also identifies the person who threatened her just prior to her testimony against President Clinton — a man who turned out to be paid by the Clintons.
Last September, Willey was the target of an unusual house burglary that nabbed a manuscript for her book, while little else was taken from her rural Virginia home.
The break-in, she said, reminded her of the widely reported incident 10 years ago in which she was threatened near the same Richmond-area home by a stranger just two days before she was to testify against President Clinton in the Paula Jones sexual harassment case. Willey believes the recent break-in and theft were prompted by the teasers of her book’s contents published that week in U.S. News and World Report’s “Washington Whispers” column and the New York Daily News.
Willey says she wrote the book because of persistent misunderstanding about what happened 10 years ago. The truth has a way of coming out in the end.
The “little people” ignored by regal Hillary entourage while campaigning.
Anita Esterday, a waitress at the Maid-Rite in Toledo, Iowa, told NPR’s David Greene in a report that aired on Morning Edition Thursday that “nobody got left a tip” on Oct. 8, when Clinton sat at the lunch counter and ordered up the restaurant’s famous loose-meat sandwich.
Esterday served Clinton, chatted with her and later ended up as an example of a hard-working single mom in Clinton’s stump speech. She told NPR she’s considering voting for Clinton, but was disappointed the senator and her staff didn’t make sure she got a tip for her labor.
The tip issue was a small part of an eight-minute piece about how everyday people get caught up in political campaigns. Half the story was about an incident in which another presidential candidate, Barack Obama, failed to follow up on a letter he said he might send to a supporter he met at a rally. The Obama campaign Thursday said they fired off a letter to the supporter after the story aired. But that part of the story received little mention in the blogosphere after airing Thursday.
PR damage control on Hillary Clinton and the missing tips. As soon as that story aired in the 5 o’clock hour Eastern Time, it was picked up by a number of political blogs. And the Clinton campaign immediately contacted news organizations to do damage control. Clinton spokesman Phil Singer wrote to NPR in an e-mail: “The campaign spent $157 and left a $100 tip at the Maid-Rite Restaurant. Wish you had checked in with us beforehand.”
So, why didn’t Hillary say so at the time?
Becuase this was a CYA to cover her arrogance.
So, after the fact, they cover up with a $100 payoff the restaurant owner, no doubt a liberal to have let Hillary’s gang take over all morning.
Miss Esterday said “nobody got tipped that day,” and NPR should have checked with the Clinton campaign before the story aired to see if any tip was left and how it was done. We regret that this was not done. On Thursday, Esterday was sticking by her story.
“Why would I lie about not getting a tip?” she told NPR. She also maintained that her co-workers at the restaurant had not received tips.
So who do you believe, Miss Esterday, or Mrs. Hillary Rodham-Clinton’s spokesman?
I’m sure, next time the Progressive Democrat will have plenty of $10s to pass around after her team sits down for a photo op.
Lesson learned by the Hillary machine, but how about the mainstream media. Is the story over? How about asking the Maid-Rite diner owner when he told the waitress staff about the $100? Why didn’t he announce it to them at the time or later that day? How about the next day? How about the next week? How about a month later? Today?
How about the name of the restaurant — Maid-Rite! How demeaning for the working women? Why did Hillary pick that un-PC chain restaurant? Is the owner a Progressive Democrat? It’s a chain of diners in Iowa. Contributors to Hillary/Obama?
Clinton aides plant student’s question
The Iowa caucuses are known for their “living-room chats” where ordinary Iowans can meet candidates face-to-face and talk about what interests voters. When candidates have larger events or make major policy speeches, the crowds are bigger, but there is often still an opportunity for questions. But under the pressures of major media coverage, with polls narrowing in Iowa, campaigns can potentially control questions and coverage by planning questions ahead of time.
While no campaigns admit to this practice, at a recent Hillary Clinton campaign event in Newton, Iowa, some of the questions posed to the New York Senator were planned in advance, planting some audience members in the crowd.
On Tuesday Nov. 6, the Clinton campaign stopped at a biodiesel plant in Newton as part of a weeklong series of events to introduce her new energy plan. The event was clearly intended to be as much about the press as the Iowa voters in attendance, as a large press core helped fill the small venue. Reporters from many major national news outlets came to the small Iowa town, from such media giants as The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, the Associated Press, and CNN.

Today we learn that the Democrat Party is not only the party of the super rich, their voters are among the richest Americans as well.
Democrats like to define themselves as the party of poor and middle-income Americans, but a new study says they now represent the majority of the nation’s wealthiest congressional districts.
In a state-by-state, district-by-district comparison of wealth concentrations based on Internal Revenue Service income data, Michael Franc, vice president of government relations at the Heritage Foundation, found that the majority of the nation’s wealthiest congressional jurisdictions were represented by Democrats.
He also found that more than half of the wealthiest households were concentrated in the 18 states where Democrats hold both Senate seats.
“If you take the wealthiest one-third of the 435 congressional districts, we found that the Democrats represent about 58 percent of those jurisdictions,” Mr. Franc said.–The Washington Times
The manager of the Maid-Rite Restaurant confirms that the Clinton party did leave a tip. It was divided among the servers…he doesn’t know why Esterday did not receive any.
JMO but maybe she did and thought she deserved more. She sounds like a liberal to me.
Don’t be so quick to jump on a news story; it may be false.
Why didn’t the manager tell that to the staff… the next day? Or how about the next week?
This was a coverup by the Clinton staff. You haven’t provided any update.
As far as I know, what I posted on 12/3 WAS the update at the time. Until I read your reply, I did not follow-up any further on the no-tip story.
Now I read that NPR apologized for airing the comment by the waitress without checking with the restaurant manager first.
Also, a Clinton campaign staffer visited the restaurant and gave the complaining Esterday
To sum it up, if the Clinton party handed a
$100 tip to someone at Maid Rite, Esterday claims she received none of it. And if they did, what is the names of the person who got it and the person who gave it?
We can chalk it up to a he said, she said debate. Aside from Hillary including this waitress’s personal story in her speeches there (if she did) ibasically it all amounts to trivia.
BTW, Mick, can you prove “This was a coverup by the Clinton staff.”
Responding to your, “You haven’t provided any update.”, where it is written that I am obliged to do that? If you REALLY wanted more information, you should have researched it yourself. Agreed?
I believe Esterday. She is a Democrat who was going to vote for Hillary untill this incident.
Thanks for the follow up. It was probably the manager of the chain restaurant’s fault for not announcing that day that the staff will split the $100 tip. Or the day after, or the week after…
How about a month later?
