L A Times ^ | April 2, 2013, 8:43 p.m. | Elaine Woo

William H. Ginsburg, a seasoned medical malpractice attorney who bolted to national prominence in the brutal arena of Washington politics as Monica Lewinsky's lawyer, died Monday at his home in Sherman Oaks. He was 70.

Later, in an open letter to Starr in California Lawyer magazine, he wrote: "Congratulations, Mr. Starr! As a result of your callous disregard for cherished constitutional rights, you may have succeeded in unmasking a sexual relationship between two consenting adults."

No, it was an affair between a married PRESIDENT of the USA and a relative child intern, which could have all kinds of national security concerns- if the louse-in-chief was not already a known womanizer.

Oh, and there was that pesky thing about lying under oath and many mysterious 'arkancides' - and the death of 2 former clinton bodyguards at Waco by 'friendly fire'

He knew that then also.

P.S. Mr. Star did not ‘uncover’ the sexual relationship. THAT relationship came out all on its own.

P.P.S. Didn’t you just feel so sorry for Mr. Fidel Castro? They rained on his parade. There he was with ALL of our major media on his island for the historic visit of the Pope when the Monica scandal broke.

Immediately, all the media packed up their cameras and flew home to cover the big scandal. Poor Fidel was left without anyone to film his event. ROFLOL.

President was accused of sexually harassing numerous women in the workplace and using force and the threat of force from armed guards to coerce women into having sex and remaining quiet even after other women stepped forward. The Clinton team paid off Ms. Lewinsky with a 6-figure job at a Friend of Bill’s company. The Clinton team pressured Ms. Lewinsky to lie under oath.

Same tactics used by the Clintons in their other scandals (keep the witnesses quiet).

Was Mr. Ginsburg okay with his client lying in the investigation of sexual impropriety in the workplace?

And where were the NOW nags who insisted that a boss who hired a secretary who’d put out was a BAD thing to be shamed?

Commander in Chief Clinton deployed troops on the phone while receiving oral sex from Ms. Lewinsky. The security breech did not just encompass the risk of blackmail.

That was and should have been at the core of the whole thing, not the fact that clinton got a lewinsky.

I saw him speak with Lewinsky present before a group of lawyers. He was pretty much of a blowhard and legal idiot, but all that mattered was powerful political forces were behind him. Keep in mind they undoubtedly paid Ginsburg and used him to control Lewinsky, rather than have her cooperate with the prosecution.

Makes me sick that Clinton, both of them actually, are corrupt and evil and the media allows them to parade around as some kind of folk heroes when they are scum.

Yes, I seem to recall something about a sexual harrassment lawsuit, them Clinton's team obstructing justice, then getting Monica to perjure herself, and maybe filing some false affadavits. I think he was also disbarred from the state of Arkansas, and the USSC won't allow him to argue cases there, either.

But just two consenting adults, Mr. Ginsberg.

Hmmm, Clinton signs a law early in his Administration in order to appease the nags where females can use past/present sexual peccadillos as evidence in sexual harassment cases.

Jones finds out an intern/Lewinsky is blowing/who knows what else the President in the White House, thus a subservient in an adulterous affair that gives a huge amount of evidence to the Jones' corner.

Clinton has an "Oh S#@T" moment where he curses himself out for signing that POS legislation and advises the intern to lie.

Nags come to his rescue and perpetuate their hypocrisy.

MSN/legal profession assumes Lewinsky's position and services the Clinton Administration.

Most of the electorate still says this was "all about sex".

I'll have to post on the Limbaugh thread to see if Limbaugh plays his "Ginsberg alert theme" like he used to do when Ginsberg was "in the news." Limbaugh would joke about it because he once appeared on all the Sunday morning shows on the same day.

CNN has a list of "His Most Memorable Quotes" and among them this one that still makes my skin crawl:

"I was there at the beginning. I kissed that girl's inner thighs when she was six days old . I said, 'Look at those little polkas.' I truly am the avuncular Mr. Ginsburg." -- Ginsburg, illustrating his long-term relationship with Monica and the Lewinsky family.

Bubba was impeached and disbarred by the Supreme Court and the state of Arkansas. If he were a Republican the press would remind us of that every time his name is mentioned.

Because a sexual relationship in the workplace, during working hours, with a subordinate is just your “private business” - when you are a Democrat politician....

Don't try this where YOU work!

He is the guy who remembered kissing Monica's ‘pulkies’(sp?) when she was a baby, right?

Bonnie and Clyde were folk heroes once upon a time and everyone knew they were guilty as sin as well.

Since the braindead Democrats CLAIMED that they did not know he lied about it until he went on tv and said that he lied, we know that they are simpletons who will swallow the most obvious falsehoods or else they lie about their perceptions of truth and expect us to fall for it. Stalinists always do.
