Subject: Jones' Attorneys Allege Other Sexual Advances By Clinton


Lawyers for Paula Jones have subpoenaed a woman who worked in the White House in 1993, alleging the president also made sexual advances toward her.

But this afternoon, attorneys for the woman, Kathleen E. Willey, issued a statement saying Willey was "outraged that she is being pulled into the Paula Jones case" and will fight the subpoena.

Willey's attorneys said that she had worked at the White House and "continues to have a very good relationship with the president."

The statement from Willey's attorneys said, "She does not know Paula Jones and does not have any information that would be relevant to her." Jones has accused Clinton of making a crude sexual overture to her in a Little Rock hotel room in 1991.

The president's lawyer, Robert Bennett, said any allegation the president made advances to Willey are "completely false."

Willey lives in the Richmond, Va., area. She worked in the 1992 Clinton campaign and later in both the White House social office and the counsel's office. Sources said Jones' lawyers want to depose Willey in August to determine if there is any truth to rumors that Clinton made sexual advances during a meeting to discuss her White House employment.

Bennett tells CNN that Jones' lawyers have also subpoenaed Betsey Wright, who was Clinton's chief of staff in Little Rock when he was governor of Arkansas. During the 1992 campaign, Wright was responsible for handling news media quest
