Did you see this one?:
1. Contact with the genitalia, anus, groin, breast, inner thigh, or buttocks of any person [that is, any other person, in this case, Monica Lewinsky] with an intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person [Lewinsky];
Contact means intentional touching, either directly or through clothing."
The parts in the quote that appear between brackets were inserted by the poster in order that he might use the above to "prove" that Clinton did not commit perjury. The above "definition" could be used to "prove" that Lewinski had sex with Clinton while simultaneously Clinton did not have sex with Lewinski!
Hmmm. Wonder why he was stripped of his credentials by the Arkansas bar?
Obviously, even under the above "definition," Clinton had sex with Lewinski. He did "cause ...contact with the genitalia [HIS OWN]... with an intent to arouse or gratify the sexual desire of any person [HIMSELF].
I took the liberty of inserting my own "brackets," as the practice seems common in the other poster's assertions.
The question is not whether one cares if the Prez has sex or an affair. The question (in my mind) is how did this smart guy let himself get into this idiotic situation and what does that say about his judgement in areas other than the area of "how do I get re-elected?"
Not to beat a dead horse, but the guy that made that stupid claim about Clinton ought to get a job as his spokesperson, if he's not already employed thusly.
