WASHINGTON -- Juanita Broaddrick, the Arkansas woman who told a nationwide
television audience she was raped by Bill Clinton, filed suit yesterday,
accusing the president's office and Justice Department of conducting a
campaign to "smear and destroy her reputation."
The civil suit, filed in U.S. District Court, is the first legal action
Broaddrick has taken since she was interviewed by NBC News earlier this
year regarding her allegations of sexual assault, according to her lawyer,
Judicial Watch Chairman Larry Klayman.

Broaddrick charges Clinton raped her while serving as Arkansas attorney
general in 1978.

Klayman, whose Judicial Watch has filed several lawsuits against the
Clinton White House, said that the administration's action is a violation
of existing privacy laws.

Broaddrick's suit requests that the White House and Justice Department be
ordered to produce any records related to her and to stop "unlawfully
disseminating information from Plaintiff's FBI and/or government files."

"We want to find out what information they have on her in violation of the
Privacy Act and how she's been damaged by that information," Klayman said.
"We know based on the Filegate lawsuit that the White House keeps files of
perceived adversaries and critics."

"Filegate" refers to a disclosure that the Clinton White House improperly
maintained possession of approximately 700 FBI background files, including
the files of many prominent political opponents. Broaddrick wrote the White
House Oct. 12 seeking documents related to her. That request was denied by
the White House, according to documents filed with the lawsuit.

But Associate White House Counsel Meredith E. Cabe replied in an Oct. 27
letter that federal laws involving disclosure "apply only to records
maintained by 'agencies' within the Executive Branch."

"The President's immediate personal staff and units in the Executive Office
of the President whose sole function is to advise and assist the President
are not included with the term 'agency' under the FOIA and Privacy Act,"
she wrote. Thus, Cabe concluded, Broaddrick does not have a statutory right
to the records, "if such records exist."

Klayman disputes the White House's legal position. He says the
administration has acknowledged in the past it is subject to the provisions
of federal laws and that a recent ruling by U.S. District Judge Royce C.
Lamberth in the FBI files matter supports that position.

A public opinion poll by Zogby International last March showed most
Americans either believe Clinton is guilty of the rape of Juanita
Broaddrick in 1978, or say that more information is needed to make a true
judgment. Few respondents believed Clinton's denial. In the poll, Zogby
questioned 908 likely voters and found that those who have made a decision
about the alleged assault believe Broaddrick's allegations by a margin of
2-1.

Last week, the Broaddrick allegation entered the presidential election race
as Vice President Al Gore was questioned by a New Hampshire resident on
national television about his view of the charge.

"After seeing scandals in Washington, my question to you is not a question
about the man, or the presidential candidate, but a question to you as a
husband, as a father and as a student of Christianity," said Katherine
Prudhomme, a former Democrat now supporting Sen. John McCain. "When Juanita
Broaddrick made the claim, that I felt credible, that she was raped by Bill
Clinton, did that change your opinion about him being one of the best
presidents in history? And do you believe Juanita Broaddrick's claim? And
what did you tell your son about this?"

Gore spent several uncomfortable minutes trying to answer the question. He
claimed not to have seen the NBC News interview.

The White House had no comment on the suit.
