Monica Lewinsky on the cover of Time magazine.

An intern in the Clinton White House, who had a relationship with President Clinton that he subsequently lied about while under oath. He didn't actually lie, but instead exploited a technicality in the definition of sex the investigation was using, by which Monica Lewinsky had had sex with him, but he had not had sex with Monica Lewinsky. This led to President Clinton's impeachment.

President Clinton sought to hush Lewinsky up by finding her a job. On October 31, 1997, Ambassador Bill Richardson, along with two assistants, travelled 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,[2] starting at $80,000 per year where Jordan also is a board member.[3]
