Report: Lewinsky Allegedly Forged Document
PORTLAND, Ore. (AllPolitics, Jan. 27) -- A document allegedly forged by Monica Lewinsky on Lewis & Clark College stationery has been turned over to Whitewater investigators, a school spokeswoman said Monday.
The purportedly phony document was written so an acquaintance of Ms. Lewinsky's would continue to receive unemployment benefits, The Sunday Oregonian reported.
When allegations of an affair between Lewinsky and President Bill Clinton surfaced, a college employee who retained a copy of the document brought it to school officials' attention and was urged to turn it over to investigators.
"I think it is fair to say that the employee believes that it may be an issue of forgery," said college spokeswoman Jean Kempe-Ware. Ware declined to comment on the document's specific content or on the employee who had kept a copy of the letter.
The college has not investigated the authenticity of the document. "The issue is in the hands of the independent counsel to determine if there is relevance or authenticity to this document," Kempe-Ware said.
Ms. Lewinsky graduated from Lewis & Clark College in 1995 with a bachelor's degree in psychology.
