Monica Lewinsky on the cover of Time magazine.

Monica Lewinsky was an intern in the White House during the Presidency of Bill Clinton. She had an affair with Clinton, which he subsequently lied about while under oath in a deposition during a civil lawsuit brought by Paula Jones, who charged Clinton with sexual harassment. Disclosure of Clinton's lies about Lewinsky led to his impeachment.

Clinton sought to keep Lewinsky from publicizing their affair by finding her a job, and on October 31, 1997, Ambassador Bill Richardson, along with two assistants, traveled to Washington to interview Lewinsky at the Watergate hotel for a job at the United Nations.[1] Democratic Presidential Adviser Vernon Jordan found her employment with Revlon—a company at which Jordan was a board member -- [2] starting at $80,000 per year.[3]
