Gifts that go on giving

As many of you know, I posted a long screed about Christopher Hitchens here which inevitably put me on the radar of the freepers. You will notice that someone claiming to be from a television documentary production company has turned up there, asking for information; my guess is that he is one of the usual right-wing conspiracy nuts peddling rape allegations against Clinton.

If you google the name Eileen Wellstone, the woman Clinton allegedly raped at Oxford, you find an endless string of assertion without a shred of evidence. I find it highly implausible, to put it mildly, that the University would have covered up anything of the kind, and that no-one at the time would have known about it, including Clinton's feminist friends.
