Kathleen Willey – a stay-at-home “soccer mom” who found herself at the very epicenter of a ruthless Clinton spin machine determined to ruin her at any and all costs — has joined WorldNetDaily’s popular Speakers Bureau.
Willey’s name became well known in the summer of 1997 after lawyers for Paula Jones gave her name to a national magazine reporter. The lawyers had filed a lawsuit in federal court against President Clinton for sexual harassment of their client and were looking for other women who had suffered the same abuse. Willey was subpoenaed by Jones’ attorneys to be deposed in their case, and after many months of unsuccessful legal maneuvering, was forced to testify.
During the months that led up to her testimony, however, she was courted by the White House and the president’s attorneys to avoid testifying and then to “plead the fifth” if she was forced to testify.
Two days before her testimony, she was threatened by a stranger at dawn while walking in her rural neighborhood. She and her children were both threatened and references were made to her damaged car and missing 13-year-old pet. The message was clear: Remain silent.
But Willey did tell the story of her assault by the president of the United States, and later became a cooperating witness before Ken Starr’s grand jury. She appeared on “60 Minutes” and told her story to 29 million viewers.
Willey was scheduled to become one of only three witnesses in the Clinton impeachment trial until some members of the House and Senate, fearful of unseating a “popular” president, refused to allow her to testify.
Throughout her long ordeal, strangely missing from the ranks of those interested in Willey’s story were the normally vocal women’s organizations.
“What single Democratic woman has done more than any other to expose the radical feminists’ organizations as the supreme hypocrites of modern times?” asks Rebecca Hagelin, WND.com vice president of communications. “Kathleen Willey.”
“When Kathleen bravely came forward with her horrendous story of sexual assault by President Clinton, the feminist leaders were silent. When she became the target of brutal verbal attacks and was sucked-up in the vortex of the Clinton spin machine, the feminist ‘champions’ of women were nowhere to be found,” continued Hagelin.
“The National Organization for Women and the Fund for a Feminist Majority want to bury Kathleen Willey and her story because it reveals that their true agenda has less to do with women’s rights, and more to do with advancing radical liberal policies. Well, I’ve got big news for them,” said Hagelin. “WorldNetDaily.com is now providing a tremendous platform for Kathleen Willey. As the newest member of the WND.com Speaker’s Bureau, Kathleen will be able to tell her full story, uncensored, to those who truly care about corruption and sexual abuse.”
WorldNetDaily’s “Speakers and Talk Show Guests” bureau include over two dozen personalities, including ABC’s John Stossel, whose addition was announced last week. Other speakers in WND’s “panel of experts” include former GOP presidential candidate, Ambassador Alan Keyes, supply-side guru Jude Wanniski, Prof. Walter Williams, Col. David Hackworth, Rev. Jerry Falwell, columnist David Limbaugh, broadcast journalist Jane Chastain, columnist Don Feder and WND founder Joseph Farah.
“WorldNetDaily.com is creating the most provocative speaker’s bureau ever assembled,” Hagelin concludes. “We are placing on the table a cadre of important issues of the day that are often tossed aside by the media in general. The WND.com Speaker’s Bureau is a way to broaden our reach with the truth — to bring, directly to the people, newsmakers, experts, authors and others who are engaged in the battle over who will shape our culture.”
