On the Willey Bandwagon
Last week we broke the story that Kathleen Willey had reported a break-in at her Powhatan County home over Labor Day weekend. But what got people talking, naturally, was Willey's suspicion that a "Clinton operative" was the burglar and had stolen a copy of her manuscript for "Target: In the Crosshairs of Bill and Hillary Clinton," due out in November.
Willey has kept a low profile since being swept into a national scandal a decade ago, alleging that then-President Bill Clinton groped her in the Oval Office in 1993. She maintains, however, that she's received numerous threats from the Clinton camp since.
Willey's stolen-manuscript story has garnered skeptics, but she soon had supporters weighing in, including David Schippers, chief counsel for Clinton's impeachment trial.
WorldNetDaily.com reports that Schippers "told Willey he had a remarkably similar experience prior to publication of his best-selling book and believes the Clintons also were behind it." He says he had several break-ins in the spring of 2000 while he was writing "Sellout: The Inside Story of President Clinton's Impeachment."
Also in Willey's corner: Rush Limbaugh, who offered this: "As I've said countless times, where the Clintons are involved, there is no coincidence."
As of Sept. 10, Willey tells us there are no updates on the investigation into her break-in by the Powhatan County Sheriff's Office. Media changes: Afternoon big-mouth Mac Watson is leaving WRVA 1140-AM for a gig in Phoenix. For about three years, the high-octane Watson has been talking national and local issues, marveling at pop culture and recounting awkward personal encounters. He's hit national airwaves, too, filling in for Glenn Beck.
At Channel 6, a revamped "Virginia This Morning" launched this week, an hour earlier at 9-10 a.m. Producer Christina Kolock says the idea is to add more of a news edge, becoming a localized third hour of CBS' "The Early Show." Because of the time change, hosts Cheryl Miller and Bill Bevins won't be on the air as much (Miller has later duties; Bevins has his Lite 98 show). In their places are Julie Bragg and Greg McQuade.
