Washington : Democratic party presidential front-runner Hillary Clinton has been heckled at a campaign rally by a Republican lawmaker who asked her questions about her husband former US president Bill Clinton’s alleged sexual impropriety. The heckler, later identified as Republican State lawmaker Katherine Prudhomme O’Brien, has for years followed the former first lady, peppering her with questions about allegations of past sexual misconduct by Bill.
Clinton, 68, who is aiming at becoming the first ever woman president of the US and is so far leading the Democratic Party’s race, described the repeated disruption in her speech as very rude. “You are very rude and I’m not never ever going to call on you,” Clinton said as O’Brien was repeatedly shouting at the former First Lady and the Secretary of State. Following the event, O’Brien told reporters that she was trying to ask Clinton about her husband’s sexual impropriety decades ago.
“I asked her how in the world she can say that Juanita Broderick and Kathleen Wiley are lying when she has no idea who Juanita Broderick is,” she said.
“She told me this summer she doesn’t know who she is and doesn’t want to know who she is. How can she access that they are lying, which she told someone last month?” O’Brien said.
