Monica Lewinsky’s Chance Encounter with Ken Starr Makes it to Vanity Fair as #Me-Too Story
After all these years, Whitewater counsel Ken Starr, as it turns out,  gives Monica Lewinsky, of blue dress infamy, “the creeps”.

You can’t make this stuff up, unless that is, you’re willing to wipe out with a magic eraser, the proven perversion of Hillary’s errant husband Bill Clinton.

We don’t know whether the chance encounter and its words took place before or after dinner, or whether there were any witnesses on either side to be able to take Lewinsky at face value.

Explaining in the article that she felt able to approach Starr, who she says “turned my 24-year-old life into a living hell”, she goes on to accuse him in the here and now of touching her arm and elbow which made her “feel uncomfortable”.

Notice how it wasn’t Clinton or what she did with him in the White House that turned her “24-year-old life into a living hell”, it was Ken Starr?

Notice how all wrong came only Lewinsky’s way in Starr’s effort “to investigate and prosecute President Bill Clinton”, said as though there was no need for the call to “investigate” and” “prosecute” sexual harasser Clinton?

In her account of the meeting described in Vanity Fair, Lewinsky comes on like an ingenue.

But then again Lewinsky said she could talk to Starr “only after years of counselling”.

“Describing spotting Starr, Lewinsky wrote: “I… began to ask, ‘You’re not?,’ he stepped toward me with a warm, incongruous smile and said, ‘Let me introduce myself. I’m Ken Starr.’ An introduction was indeed necessary. This was, in fact, the first time I had met him.” (NewsWeek, Feb.26, 2018)

 “Ken Starr asked me several times if I was ‘doing O.K.’ A stranger might have surmised from his tone that he had actually worried about me over the years. His demeanor, almost pastoral, was somewhere between avuncular and creepy. He kept touching my arm and elbow, which made me uncomfortable,” she said.

“The activist has also addressed her feelings about the #MeToo movement that she said has made her reconsider the power dynamics in her relationship with then-President Clinton, a powerful man 27 years her senior who she says had “enough life experience to know better.”

But the #MeToo movement, Ms. Lewinsky has given Bill Clinton a pass on sexual harassment while continuing to drum out of their livelihoods legions of men with accusations never backed up by any evidence.

“Since her affair with Clinton was exposed, Lewinsky has been in and out of the public eye—most recently devoting her energy towards tackling cyber bullying, a topic she had said is close to her heart after the backlash she received about her encounters with Clinton. (NewsWeek)

“And did her encounter with Starr end in the apology she had hoped for? Unfortunately, in that area too, their chance meeting left her unhappy.

“’Though I wish I had made different choices back then,’ I stammered, ‘I wish that you and your office had made different choices, too,’” Lewinsky wrote.

“In hindsight, I later realized, I was paving the way for him to apologize. But he didn’t. He merely said, with the same inscrutable smile, ‘I know. It was unfortunate.”

Could that be, Ms. Lewinsky because you were expecting an apology from the wrong man?
