After Juanita Broadrick’s viral tweet that Bill Clinton raped her.
Buzzfeed has a lengthy article and interview with Juanita Broaddrick, who has accused Bill Clinton of rape, Juanita Broaddrick Wants To Be Believed. It’s well worth the read.
There is one part of the Buzzfeed article which is news in itself.
Hillary (in)famously stated on Twitter, and a campaign video quoted on her website, that women who allege sexual assault “have the right to be believed.”
In light of the accusations by Broaddrick and others such as Paula Jones, Hillary’s comment was the focus of much mockery, including our tweet of a previous A.F. Branco cartoon:
Broaddrick tweeted on January 6, 2016 about the rape, and the tweet went viral (it currently has over 46,000 retweets):
I was 35 years old when Bill Clinton, Ark. Attorney General raped me and Hillary tried to silence me. I am now 73….it never goes away.

The Buzzfeed article documents that after that tweet, the Clinton campaign quietly removed the language about women alleging sexual assault having “the right to be believed”:
Another redditor pointed out that Hillary Clinton’s campaign website appeared to have made some edits to its “campus sexual assault” page. Last winter, website archives show, a September 14, 2015, quote from Hillary ran across the top:
“I want to send a message to every survivor of sexual assault: Don’t let anyone silence your voice. You have the right to be heard. You have the right to be believed, and we’re with you.”
In February, shortly after Broaddrick’s viral tweet made headlines, the line “you have the right to be believed” was cut from the text. A video of the full remarks, that line included, is currently on the page. The Clinton campaign declined to comment on the change.
