Ex-Intern: Lewinsky Admitted Affair
LOS ANGELES (AP) _ A college student who worked as a Pentagon intern says Monica Lewinsky told him last summer that she had a sexual relationship with President Clinton, the UCLA Daily Bruin reported Monday.
Dennis Lytton, a political science major at the University of California, Los Angeles, said he briefly dated Ms. Lewinsky after they met at the Pentagon last July.
Lytton, 24, said Ms. Lewinsky told him she and the president had sex and ``you could say that I earned my presidential kneepads.″
The comment was similar to what Ms. Lewinsky allegedly told a former high school teacher with whom she had an affair.
``It was kind of shocking,″ Lytton said of Ms. Lewinsky’s statements. ``I didn’t want to go into it further.″
Reached Monday by The Associated Press, Lytton said of the Daily Bruin report: ``The information is accurate. The quotes are accurate. That’s all I want to say at this time.″
Lytton, a fourth-year UCLA student, told the newspaper he went out with Ms. Lewinsky twice last summer and they often had lunch together in the Pentagon cafeteria.
He said he decided to speak publicly of the matter because he wanted to document his story in case Ms. Lewinsky told Whitewater prosecutor Kenneth Starr that she had ``told me more than she really did.″
Lytton worked as an unpaid intern in the office of Joe McMillan, the acting deputy assistant secretary of defense for strategy and threat reduction, from June 23, 1997, until Aug. 29, 1997, according to Pentagon spokesman Col. Richard Bridges.
