Over the years there have been many variations of the claims.
Bill Clinton ran drugs. Clinton had someone killed. Clinton went into the future and cause the recession.
And on it goes.
And today conservatives try to pass off shoddy, illegal, and plain immoral acts by claiming Clinton did it first.
The easiest way for them to pull this off is to take some act he did do, vague it up, misquote, and place in a completely different context.
This brouhaha over US Attorneys getting sacked, specifically the ones NOT targeting democrats, and targeting republicans. With White House chatter, Rove involvement, and Gonzales in over his head (Probably should have just stayed on the State Supreme Court.), it is time to bring out the big guns, and that means targeting the previous president that conservatives love tarring. Bill Clinton.
The trouble, of course, is that they need to lie to make Clinton seem worse. Clinton did drop the previous admin's US Attorneys. It was not an unheard of practice. It was a sweep...at the start of his own administration. Yeah, when he came in he bumped them out and put in a new set. Bush 's man has been popping them one by one as they give his overlords' displeasure.
One way, administrative house cleaning. Another way, political games using our the USA's as pawns.
The Carpetbagger Report has more on this story.
Clinton has plenty to be criticized for. But, like with Hillary, can people stick to the events that occurred in this reality. Hmm? And MEDIA, catchup!
