Clinton campaign laughs off 'absurd' claim Bill tried to seduce Jackie Kennedy

Did Bill Clinton Try to Seduce Jackie Kennedy

Bill Clinton just can't seem to get his love life out of the spotlight.

A new book claims the former president attempted to seduce former first lady Jackie Kennedy while visiting her at her Fifth Avenue New York apartment.

According to the book, Mrs. Kennedy told a friend "We almost indulged in a wrestling match. It was most embarrassing. I mean, I was flattered that I turned him on so much at my age, but Bill was just like Jack in the sense that neither of them wanted to take 'no' for an answer."

But many claim multiple details in this story are unfounded. By all accounts, Mrs. Kennedy was an ardent supporter of President Clinton, donating to his campaign numerous times before passing away at the age of 64 in 1994.

At the time the authors claim this would have happened, Mrs. Kennedy, would have already been in her 60s. Clinton would have been in his late 40s.

When asked for comment Sunday a Clinton Spokesperson told the Daily Mail "[Is it] possible to quote me laughing at the sheer absurdity of this story?"

The story is a part of "Bill & Hillary: So This Is That Thing Called Love" by Darwin Porter and Danforth Prince, which is scheduled for release later this month.

Porter has written sensationalist biographies of many Hollywood figures, but he has received criticism for his use of predominantly second-hand information.
