N E W Y O R K , Oct. 7, 2000 -- Paula Jones, whose sexual harassment lawsuit led to President Clinton’s impeachment by the House, will be featured in a nude spread in Penthouse magazine, a newspaper reported.
The New York Daily News tabloid reported today that the former Arkansas state employee, who once vowed never to pose naked, is to appear in an upcoming issue of the magazine, nude and semi-nude.
The story accompanying the photographs is titled, “Paula Jones Uncovered! She Shows All, She Tells All: How the Far Right Used and Abused Her to Destroy Clinton.”
The News quoted a spokeswoman for the publisher, General Media Communications Inc., as saying “This is a new and improved Paula Jones. … She has a lovely body.”
The newspaper also quoted Susan Carpenter-McMillan, Jones’ former adviser, as saying she was “completely, vehemently opposed to posing in the nude.
“If it’s true. … It’s the worst thing she could have done. I don’t think anyone will approve of it.”
According to the News, the picture spread was shot in California during the Democratic National Convention and will show Jones naked inside and next to a swimming pool.
The News also reports that “at least two pictures … will be full exposure.”
The Penthouse magazine office was closed for the holiday weekend, and an operator said a spokesperson would not be available for comment until Tuesday.
Clinton was impeached on perjury and obstruction of justice charges, stemming from the Jones lawsuit, in which he gave evasive answers when asked about affairs with other women, including former White House intern Monica Lewinsky.
Jones had accused Clinton of sexual harassment while he was governor of Arkansas and she was a state employee.
