Whitewater / Lewinsky and related "scandals"The article is filled with allegations that are later proven to be false, and the troopers are later discredited. In 2002, Brock will write, "[I]n pursuit of my budding career as a right-wing muckraker, I let myself get mixed up in a bizarre and at times ludicrous attempt by well-financed right-wing operatives to tar Clinton with sleazy, personal allegations. Operating in conjunction with, but outside of, official GOP or movement organizations and well below the radar of the American public and the press corps as the election campaign unfolded, the effort went far beyond the opposition research typically conducted by political campaigns -- not only in its secretiveness and its single-mindedness, but also in its lack of fidelity to any standard of proof, principle, or propriety. These activities...were a very early hint of how far the political right would go in the coming decade to try to destroy the Clintons." As for the troopers' stories, in 1998 Brock writes for Esquire, "As difficult as it is for the general public to fathom, Arkansas political culture has a rich history of personal intrigue in which wild sex stories do feature prominently. ...Sit in the Capitol Bar, in downtown Little Rock, for a few nights, and you can be told that virtually every prominent public figure in the state is a rapacious womanizer and also gay -- including Clinton. Even Hillary Clinton was not spared this treatment: one can hear that she was having an affair with Vince Foster and also that she is a lesbian, often from the same lascivious gossips."
