Dartmouth College junior Danielle D’Souza tweeted out what purports to be a picture of Bill Clinton, who presumably is or was in New Hampshire campaigning for his wife Hillary, the Democrat presidential front-runner, with the following satirical message.
“Hanging out a Dartmouth when this creepy, strange man came up behind me.”
Danielle is apparently the daughter of Dinesh D’Souza, the author and anti-Obama documentarian, who also attended Dartmouth.
Last year, the elder D’Souza pleaded guilty to one felony count related to an illegal political campaign donation and served eight months in a San Diego-area halfway house, an experience that he chronicles in a new book called Stealing America: What My Experience with Criminal Gangs Taught Me about Obama, Hillary, and the Democratic Party.
Some claim that the federal prosecution of D’Souza for a relatively minor election law violation was an example of unfair and selective enforcement.
About two years ago, an unrelated picture of Bill Clinton with a well-endowed young blonde at a Clinton Foundation fundraiser in New York City went viral on social media.

Commenting on the Danielle D’Souza tweet, Twitchy joked that “Despite what they actually mean, the government still says that if you see something, you should say something…While we wait for campus security to come up with an explanation why this man was running around loose on campus, let’s just pray that everyone is all right and campus security gives the all clear soon.”
The popular Clinton’s good-natured, good-old-boy, “Slick Willie” reputation has reemerged in the intense political season, but unfortunately it may not be all fun and games.
His much-discussed and written about alleged philandering as an Arkansas politician and U.S. president has been dredged up again after Hillary Clinton accused her GOP counterpart Donald Trump of sexism, at which point the brash New York businessman fired back, accusing her husband, who is now active on the campaign trail, of “women abuse,” among other things.
Hillary Clinton foes have also claimed that she enabled her husband’s misbehavior during their marriage.
While serving as the 42nd president, Bill Clinton had an affair with White House intern Monica Lewinsky, which eventually led to his impeachment in the U.S. House on perjury and obstruction of justice, although the Senate failed to convict him.
The Lewinsky scandal came to light as a result of a sexual harassment lawsuit filed against him by former Arkansas state employee Paula Jones. While the case, which has a complicated procedural history, was on appeal, Clinton paid Jones $850,000 to settle the litigation.
More disturbingly, on January 6, retired Arkansas nursing home operator Juanita Broaddrick took to Twitter to declare that “I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General, raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73…it never goes away.”
NBC News covered the Broaddrick story in February 1999, but waited 35 days to air it, which occurred after Clinton avoided impeachment.
“There were also rumblings that NBC sat on its 1999 Dateline interview with Broaddrick until after the Senate voted on perjury and obstruction of justice charges against Clinton. NBC’s Lisa Myers interviewed her on Jan. 20, 1999. Clinton was acquitted on Feb. 12, 1999. Dateline aired the Broaddrick piece on Feb. 24, 1999 only after the Wall Street Journal and Washington Post published articles with Broaddrick’s claims,” The Daily Caller noted about the mainstream media’s tendency “to protect Bill Clinton in the past from accusations of sexual impropriety.”
Kathleen Willey — who claims she was groped by then-President Bill Clinton in the Oval Office — has challenged Hillary Clinton’s feminist credentials given that the election 2016 candidate allegedly attempted to intimidate any female who came forward or might have come forward with allegations about her husband. In a recent radio interview, Willey insisted that “I would just like to encourage any woman who has suffered at the hands of Bill Clinton to please try to find the courage and bravery to come forth. Because it’s okay now. Nobody can hurt you now. It’s as simple as that… You will be okay but you will be doing the right thing for all the right reasons and you will be helping your fellow sisters,” Breitbart News reported.
Do you think that Bill Clinton’s past is relevant in election 2016?
