While the sexting of former congressman and current candidate for new York mayor Anthony Weiner is still making national headlines, a blast-from-the-past sex tape involving Monica Lewinsky and former President Bill Clinton has just reportedly surfaced.
An audio tape obtained by the National Enquirer purports to reveal the former White House intern planning a secret sexual meeting with the president and proclaiming to her paramour she’s “too cute and adorable” to be ignored.
The recording, made in November 1997 at the height of the pair’s sexual affair, is three minutes, 47 seconds long, and is addressed to “handsome.”
At one point, Lewinsky is heard trying to seduce Clinton, saying: “I could take my clothes off and start … well … I know you wouldn’t enjoy that? I hope to see you later and I hope you will follow my script and do what I want.”
Monica’s voice is the only one heard on the tape, which was thought to have been destroyed years ago, though a duplicate was secretly made and has now surfaced, according to the Enquirer.
On the recording, Lewinsky tells the commander in chief: “Since I know you will be alone tomorrow evening, I have two proposals for you, neither of which is you not seeing me.”
She then takes charge, instructing Clinton use his secretary, Betty Currie, to plan the president’s schedule so they could secretly meet without any formal record of her visit.
“Now the first thing that has to happen is that you need to pre-plan with Betty that you will leave the office at, I don’t know, at 7, 7:30 so that everyone else who hates me that causes me lots of trouble goes home,” Lewinsky tells Clinton.
“Then you quickly sneak back and then in the meantime I quickly sneak over and then we can have a nice little visit for, you know, 15 minutes or half an hour. Whatever you want.”
Monica laments how the pair’s previous “60 seconds” encounter “was just not enough – even though you did look very handsome.”
“Maybe we could go over and watch a movie together and just have kind of, I don’t know, boxed dinners or something like that,” she continued.
“And then that way we don’t have to deal with the problem of me … of there being a record of me going upstairs and we can spend some time together and see a good movie.
“So I don’t know, those are two proposals and you can’t refuse me because I’m too cute and adorable and soon I won’t be here anymore to pop over.
“I’m hoping you will hear this and you will choose which one you want to do and go tell Betty and then she can call me and let me know so I don’t have to stress out all day and I don’t have to call her every two hours and bug her because, I know you will find this very hard to believe, but I can be a pain in the a– sometimes.
“I’m very persistent, but um … I really want to see you.”
The Enquirer says Lewinsky initially played the tape for Linda Tripp – the woman whose covert phone tapes of Monica eventually led to Clinton’s impeachment – on Nov. 20, 1997.
A report by the Office of Independent Counsel Ken Starr indicates the cassette was delivered to the White House the next day.
The recording as well as other “souvenirs” such as love letter from Lewinsky to Clinton, were reportedly obtained by someone hired as a “cleaner” by people close to Lewinsky.
The material was kept private for the past 15 years, and the Clintons reportedly thought the evidence was no longer in existence.
“First, I forgot to tell you that the Gingko Blowjoba, or whatever it’s called, was from me,” Lewinsky wrote in one romantic note to Bill Clinton.
“I also included those new Zinc throat lozenges which are rumored to be great.”
In several notes, Lewinsky pleaded with the president to make time to see her, and she begged him to explain why he put an end to their adulterous affair.
The Enquirer reports the revelation of the tape could sink Hillary Clinton’s expected run for the White House.
“The Clintons thought this sex tape was dead and buried,” a source told the paper. “If this tape and other material are surfacing now, imagine what else must be out there?
“This could be just the tip of the iceberg and the most embarrassing ‘bimbo eruption’ of all for the Clintons.”
