The woman who accused Bill Clinton of raping her in the 1970s has lashed out at Monica Lewinsky over her involvement in the #MeToo campaign.
Juanita Broaddrick, 74, called out Lewinsky on Thursday after the former White House intern tweeted the #MeToo hashtag to identify herself a victim of sexual harassment or assault.
The hashtag has gone viral in the wake of the Harvey Weinstein sex harassment scandal. Lewinsky did not go into details about her experience with harassment.
Broaddrick criticized Lewinsky for failing to come to her defense when she initially came forward with her accusations against Clinton in the 1990s.
‘Better late than never Monica Lewinsky’s ME TOO. I have always felt sad for you, but where were you when we needed you?’ she tweeted.
‘Your silence was deafening in the 90’s when Kathleen, Paula and I needed your voice.’
She was referring to Kathleen Willey and Paula Jones who have also accused Clinton of sexual assault or harassment.
Broaddrick has long accused Clinton of forcing himself on her in a Little Rock hotel room while he was campaigning to be the governor of Arkansas.
