"As a former federal employee, for 21 years, I can say that this no mistake about the intent of the Hatch Act and other similiar laws. Every year we would receive a memo or letter reminding all federal employees that no campaigning, soliticiting or any other political actions can be performed on federal premises. Even if using the phone for soliciting contributions off premises is not covered as you suggested, all lowly federal employees know that use of government phones for personal reasons is illegal. The federal building in Manhattan has phone booths in the hallways for employees who wished to call home or make other calls. Of course these rules were probably abused by most federal employees, but this does not make it right for someone in the VP's position to do so, especially to make solicitations and basically campaigning at the same time." --kirkz

President Clinton, who never did get his draft story straight, said in a radio address last year that a wave of black church burnings brought back "vivid and painful memories of black churches being burned in my own state when I was a child." When Arkansas historians pointed out there were no black church burnings in the state then or perhaps ever, a Clinton spokesperson said he meant "black community buildings" (though there is no record of that either). But, wherever the fires were, she insisted, Clinton's recollections were "very vivid and painful." --Why do public figures pad their autobiographies?, By Jodie T. Allen, Slate

"Honesty is not so much a credit as an absolute prerequisite to efficient service to the public. Unless a man is honest, we have no right to keep him in public life; it matter not how brilliant has capacity..." --Theodore Roosevelt, May12, 1900

The "Unofficial" Bill Clinton


WASHINGTON ~ Last night, as the sun set on the nation's capitol, hundreds of federal agents sealed off all streets leading to the White House in an attempt to conceal a secret alien visit. Residents were evacuated from the area and roadblocks were set up at intersections within a two mile radius of the White House. Many people reported noxious vapors and a putrid stench which seemed to originate from the White House. A wEakLy wHiRL kNEwZ SPECIAL REPORT ALIENS CONTROL CLINTON
