WASHINGTON -- A red-faced George Stephanopolous told reporters last night that he would be sure never to let his driver's license expire again. President Clinton's senior advisor made the comments following his arrest on charges of driving with an expired permit and leaving the scene of an accident.
Stephanopolous said he brushed a parked car with his automobile while leaving a Georgetown restaurant after dinner. Police said there were no injuries in the accident, and alcohol was not involved.
NEW YORK -- The Wall Street Journal has reported that the FBI is launching an investigation of Calvin Klein's recent teen ad campaign. Investigators want to know if models in the ads -- called "pornographic" by some -- were minors.
Calvin Klein Inc. pulled the ad campaign, which began in print and on television in July, on August 28 after a flurry of complaints about the ads. Both the company and the agency that provided the models say all were over 18.
The American Family Association, a right-wing media watchdog group headed by Rev. Donald Wildmon in Tupelo, Mississippi, led the drive for a federal investigation.
