From the transcript of a commercial that was broadcast last November on local television and radio stations in Washington, D.C., by the Free Congress Foundation and The National Center for Public Policy Research. The foundation maintains a Web site that provides updates on Paula Jones’s sexual-misconduct suit against Bill Clinton. In its first month, the toll-free number below received more than 4,000 calls.

For thirty-three years sexual harassment has been a crime in the United States. [Sound of jail door slamming]

But when a working-class woman accused the President of sexual harassment, the clock was turned back. The President’s men immediately unleashed a brutal—unsubstantiated—attack to discredit the morals and ethics of the woman bringing the charge.

No one should be above the law in America—no matter how powerful he is.

If you believe you have been a victim of sexual harassment by the President, we want to help. Call this toll-free number now: 1-888- H-A-R-A-S-S-U. That’s 1-888-HARASS-U.
