William Jefferson Clinton, born William Jefferson Blythe III, or Bill Clinton was the 42nd U.S. president, served in office from 1993 to 2001. Prior to that, the AR native and Democrat was governor of his home state. During Clinton’s time in the White House, America enjoyed an era of peace and prosperity, marked by low unemployment, declining crime rates and a budget surplus.
Clinton appointed a number of women and minorities to top government posts, including Janet Reno, the first female U.S. attorney general, and Madeleine Albright, the first female U.S. secretary of state. In the midst of these events, Clinton’s 2nd term was marred by scandal. On December 19, 1998, the U.S. House of Representatives impeached him for perjury and obstruction of justice in connection with a sexual relationship he had with White House intern Monica Lewinsky between late 1995 and early 1997.
On February 12, 1999, the U.S. Senate acquitted Clinton of the charges and he remained in office. He was the 2nd American president to be impeached. The 1st Andrew Johnson, was impeached in 1868 and also later acquitted.

The Clinton-Lewinsky scandal was the political sex scandal that came to light in 1998, involving a sexual relationship between 1995 and 1996 with then 49-year-old President Bill Clinton and a 22-year-old White House intern, Monica Lewinsky. During a televised speech, Clinton ended with the statement that he did not have sexual relations with Lewinsky, however further investigation led to charges of perjury and led to the impeachment of Clinton in 1998 by the U.S. House of Representatives.
In the subsequent 21-day Senate trial, he was acquitted on all impeachment charges of perjury and obstruction of justice. President Clinton was also held in civil contempt of court by Judge Susan Webber Wright for giving misleading testimony in the Paula Jones case regarding Lewinsky, and was also fined $90,000 by Wright. His license to practice law was suspended in AR for 5 years and later by the United States Supreme Court.
The scandal arguably affected the 2000 U.S. presidential election in two contradictory ways. Democratic Party candidate and sitting vice president Al Gore said that Clinton's scandal had been "a drag" that deflated the enthusiasm of their party's base, and had the effect of reducing Democratic votes. Clinton said that the scandal had made Gore's campaign too cautious, and that if Clinton had been allowed to campaign for Gore in AR and NH, either state would have delivered Gore's needed electoral votes regardless of the effects of the Florida recount controversy.
