Tyrrell: Purdum plagiarized me

R. Emmett Tyrrell, editor of The American Spectator, says that Todd Purdum’s Vanity Fair article was not original:

“Seventeen anecdotes and ideas are clearly lifted from my book, The Clinton Crack-Up,” states Mr. Tyrrell. “Mr. Purdum’s article did not make reference to the book once.”

No wonder Bubba called Dee Dee Myers’ husband “slimy.” Purdum’s suggestion of an affair between Clinton and actress Gina Gershon results in a threat from Ms. Gershon’s lawyer:

Through the innuendo-laden assertion that Ms. Gershon has been “visiting” with President Clinton in California, [Purdum] outrageously insinuates that Ms. Gershon has had an inappropriate sexual relationship with President Clinton. This is absolutely false. . . . We demand publication of a retraction and correction. . . .
The truth . . . is that Ms. Gershon has only been in the same room as President Clinton on three occasions, during which she was always in the presence of anywhere from approximately a dozen people to several hundred or more.

So much for that rumor, I suppose. Perhaps Vanity Fair confused Gina Gershon the actress with Nina Gershon, the federal judge whom Clinton appointed in 1995? But let’s not start any new rumors.
