Jones Disappointed With Verdict

February 13, 1999

CABOT, Ark. (AP) _ Paula Jones, whose sexual harassment lawsuit began the scandal that ended with Friday’s impeachment vote, said she was disappointed the Senate did not remove President Clinton from office.

``I’m not happy, you know, for sure,″ Mrs. Jones told Fox News outside a school where she picked up her children. ``I just expected it because he gets away with everything.″

Mrs. Jones sued Clinton on May 6, 1994, alleging he propositioned her at the Excelsior Hotel in Little Rock three years earlier, when she was a state worker and he was Arkansas’ governor.

The case was later thrown out, and Mrs. Jones and Clinton settled for $850,000. But the House impeached Clinton on charges that he obstructed justice and committed perjury in the lawsuit.

Mrs. Jones had moved to California after leaving her job at a state economic office, but she is moving back to Arkansas to be closer to family and friends.
