Hillary says they're baaack!
WASHINGTON (AP) - Presidential candidate Hillary Rodham Clinton told Democrats Tuesday the "vast, right-wing conspiracy" is back, using a phrase she once coined to describe partisan criticism.
Speaking to Democratic municipal officials, the New York senator used the term to hammer Republicans on election irregularities.
Clinton was first lady when she famously charged allegations of an affair between her then-president husband Bill Clinton and White House intern Monica Lewinsky were the result of a conservative conspiracy.
As evidence of the affair eventually came to light, the comment was ridiculed.But many Democrats have since insisted that Clinton was correct, pointing to the well-documented efforts by conservative financier Richard Mellon Scaife to fund a network of anti-Clinton investigations.
Actually, we've been here right along, but staying low-key and meeting secretly and quietly here and there -- that's what conspiracies do, you know. I do think I can reveal that we have decided to lay off Hillary -- her campaign will implode nicely without us, and we need to conserve our energies to make sure the right sort of Republican gets the nomination, if you know what I mean. And don't think we're not watching you. You know who you are.
