Clinton political adviser James Carville has been served with a complaint
alleging defamation of character "and other charges" against former Clinton
girlfriend Gennifer Flowers, by the Washington-based legal watchdog
organization Judicial Watch.
Carville, who was served the complaint Tuesday during a book signing
event for his new book, "Stickin'," was named along with former Clinton
advisor George Stephanopoulos and first lady Hillary Rodham Clinton, who the
complaint alleges also violated Flowers' privacy.

A notoriously vociferous supporter of the president -- frequently
characterized as an "attack dog" -- Carville allegedly made false and
misleading statements about Flowers while defending the president on
television, radio, and in the press, at one point stating emphatically that
Flowers was lying about her involvement with Clinton -- charges which first
surfaced during Clinton's 1991 presidential campaign.
Though Clinton, through advisors like Carville and Stephanopoulos, denied
involvement with Flowers, he later admitted on national television that he
had, indeed, had a sexual relationship with her.
"Gennifer Flowers and other women represented by Judicial Watch who have
been wronged by President and Mrs. Clinton and their collaborators will not
rest until justice has been served," said Larry Klayman, chairman of
Judicial Watch. Klayman is an exclusive weekly columnist for
Judicial Watch currently has many lawsuits pending against the Clinton
administration alleging a variety of charges. The group, which has been
openly criticized by the administration, has been successful in winning
court decisions against administration officials for testimony and for
release of certain documents that have been denied to other investigators.
