Allegations Of Previous Affair, Forgery Haunt Lewinsky


WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, Jan. 26) -- Monica Lewinsky, the former White House intern at the center of the latest Clinton Administration controversy, had an affair with an older married man while she was a college student, says an acquaintance. Meanwhile, forgery allegations from her college days also follow Lewinsky.

According to a person who knew Lewinsky while she was a student, Lewinsky conducted an affair with an older married man while attending Lewis & Clark College in Portland, Ore. The acquaintance says that Lewinsky moved from Los Angeles, where she was attending Santa Monica College, to follow the man to Portland.

Lewinsky told a group of friends about her affair with the older professional man, who had small children at the time.

Lewinsky's lawyer, William Ginsburg, told CNN that Lewinsky moved to Portland only because she had been accepted at Lewis & Clark College. Ginsburg acknowledged that Lewinsky did have a relationship with a man aged 40 while in Portland, but said he could not comment on the man's marital status nor his profession.

Meanwhile, an employee of Lewis & Clark College has told the college administration that documents in the employee's possession suggest that Lewinsky could have been involved in forgery.

According to Scott Staff, a vice president at Lewis & Clark, the college administration advised the employee to contact Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr with the information. Staff said he does not know if that contact has been made yet.

Staff will not say what the nature of the alleged forgery is, but the forgery neither relates to academic nor sexual matters. The employee brought the matter to the attention of college officials on Thursday. Staff says the college has not seen the documents in question.

In a statement, the college administrators "praise the courage of this employee to step forward in this investigation through well-established legal procedures to help the U.S. government reach the truth in this most important matter."

Ginsburg tells CNN, "At this point, I know nothing about this."
