Juanita Broaddrick made waves Wednesday when she tweeted that Bill Clinton raped her in 1978. Who is she, and what is her story?
In 1978, Bill Clinton was campaigning to be Arkansas’ governor when he made a stop at a nursing home, where a woman named Juanita Broaddrick worked as a nurse. In a 1999 interview with NBC News, Broaddrick says she remembered the then 35-year-old Clinton as “a very charismatic man with bright ideas” — she even campaigned for him. In the interview, Broaddrick says that Clinton told her to drop by his campaign office in Little Rock, Arkansas, if she were ever in the neighborhood. At the time, Clinton was serving as the state’s Attorney General.
