It pays to be Paula Jones

FAST WOMAN: But speeding just got a warning for Paula Jones.

  • FAST WOMAN: But speeding just got a warning for Paula Jones.
Here's some small comfort for the women who've accused Herman Cain of sexual harassment and now find themselves being run through the right-wing politics-of-personal-destruction mill. Celebrity might pay off some day (and with something less painful than a televised boxing match with Tonya Harding).

Local example, in the person of Paula Jones of Lonoke, the famous accuser of Bill Clinton who is now a quiet suburban mom with a job in a medical office. Posted today on her Facebook account:

“Talk about LUCKY this morning … I got stopped by a state trooper going 80 and when he only gave me a warning and said “we have 180 something mutual FB friends” then I was like well we should be friends too! He was very polite and nice and told me to SLOW way down tho!!! Thank you sir! :D [emoticon for BIG smile]”

Commented a Facebook friend: “I am wearing a Paula Jones mask next time if I want to speed in Arkansas. Lol”

    September 8, 2016
