Gennifer Flowers Subpoenaed

October 29, 1997

DALLAS (AP) _ Gennifer Flowers, who claims she had an affair with President Clinton, has been subpoenaed to answer questions in Paula Jones’ sexual harassment lawsuit against the president.

Ms. Flowers received the subpoena Tuesday and is scheduled to give a deposition Nov. 14, said her lawyer, Rugger Burke.

Burke said he wasn’t certain what Ms. Flowers would be asked, but noted that Mrs. Jones’ attorneys had asked for tape recordings of conversations and any correspondence between Ms. Flowers and Clinton.

Mrs. Jones alleges in her $700,000 lawsuit that Clinton, then the Arkansas governor, exposed himself and asked her for oral sex in May 1991. She was a state employee at the time and claims Clinton later used his influence to land her in a dead-end job.

Clinton denies the allegations and says he does not recall meeting Mrs. Jones.

Ms. Flowers claimed during Clinton’s 1992 presidential campaign that she had a 12-year affair with him while he was governor of Arkansas.

Clinton has denied Ms. Flowers’ claims.
