Juanita Broaddrick Goes After CNN’s Ana Navarro For Shafting Her

In a dramatic tweet Monday night — or as dramatic as these things go — CNN political analyst Ana Navarro stood shoulder to shoulder with the women of the #metoo movement.

But one woman, Juanita Broaddrick, who alleges that former President Clinton raped her during his 1978 gubernatorial campaign, seems to feel like a woman left out in the cold. That, or else she just wasn’t invited to Navarro’s sexual misconduct-themed birthday party.

Broaddrick didn’t take the slight laying down. She lashed out at a Navarro.

Broaddrick found a creative way to make good use of Charles Manson‘s newly empty cell, since the murderer and cult leader is now dead.

Broaddrick really wasn’t having a great day press wise.

She was also booted off Fox News’s “Hannity” program.

Born and raised in Akron, Ohio, Betsy has been covering and torturing Washington media for the past three years. Early on she studied journalism in England, interviewing punk rockers in Piccadilly Square who stole her notebook and ripped it up. After graduating from Union College with a B.A. in Spanish, she began her journalism career in Cambridge, Mass., working for a Cuban newspaper where she conducted man-on-the-street interviews. She asked Latinos about their love lives. “Do Latinos make better lovers or what?” She soon moved out west to Denver, where she worked for two rival Hispanic weeklies for one year each. Next stop: J-school at Northwestern’s Medill School of Journalism, where she earned a master’s degree. In the years following grad school she worked at the Boca Raton News as a business reporter followed by a brief stint as a press secretary for former Rep. Robert Wexler (D-Fla.). She spent the next decade on Capitol Hill covering hard news, features and gossip for The Hill Newspaper. In 2009 she quit and moved to Portland, Ore. and wrote about the many long-haired men there who distinctly resemble Jesus. They weren’t all kind (one was fat and confrontational) but she got her story. Prior to joining TheDC, Betsy was the editor of FishbowlDC, a Washington media gossip blog.
