The Republican Club of Indian River County will feature retired nursing home administrator Juanita Broaddrick on Wednesday, March 6th, at the Grand Harbor Golf & Beach Club in Vero Beach, according to club president Frank Sosta.
Hosted by the Republican Club of Indian River, a full dinner will be served. Doors open for a cocktail hour at 5 p.m. – meeting starts promptly at 6:00. Mandatory RSVP is required – tickets start at $40.00.
Juanita’s book – “You’d Better Put Some Ice On That: How I Survived Being Raped by Bill Clinton,” will be available immediately following the event.
Author of “You’d Better Put Some Ice On That: How I Survived Being Raped by Bill Clinton,” Juanita Broaddrick burst into the public consciousness when she accused President Bill Clinton on national television of raping her in 1978 as he ran for governor of Arkansas. It was a television appearance she dreaded and never wanted, but she wanted to squelch the rumors. It was rape, pure and simple.
“I was a volunteer in Arkansas Attorney General Bill Clinton’s 1978 gubernatorial campaign when he summoned me for a meeting at a hotel in Little Rock,” Broaddrick told the South Florida Reporter. “Biting me on the lip during the attack, the last thing he said was, ‘You better get some ice for that,’ before putting on his sunglasses and walking out the door.”
In her book, Broaddrick tells a story of survival; from the sexual assault at the hands of the future governor – and later – future president, to the veiled threats by a seemingly complicit presidential wannabe, Hillary Rodham Clinton. Broaddrick aims to set the record straight and ensure victims everywhere are believed.
“Long before the #MeToo movement, Juanita Broaddrick, Paula Jones, and Kathleen Wiley publicly accused Bill Clinton of harassment and sexual assault,” Sosta told South Florida Reporter. “These women were far more credible than what we’ve seen in recent allegations against Kevin Spacey, James Toback, Louis CK, Harvey Weinstein and others accused of sexual misconduct.”
