In July 1993, White House official Vincent Foster wrote an anguished lament: ""in Washington...ruining people is considered a sport."" Nine days later, Foster was dead. Shock at the apparent suicide of one of President Clintons top aides turned to mystery, then suspicion, as the White House became engulfed in an ever-widening net of unanswered questions. Among the confidential matters Foster was working on when he died was the Clintons ill-fated investment in Whitewater, an Arkansas land development. Soon conspiracy theories were circulating, alleging that Foster was murdered because he knew too much. And the Whitewater affair, a minor footnote to the 1992 presidential campaign, was suddenly resurrected in the national media. To a degree that left them sunned and at times depressed, the president and the first lady have been buffeted by a succession of scandals, from the first ladys profitable commodities trading to the sexual harassment allegations of Paula Jonesl Like his predecessors, the Clinton presidency son found itself engulfed in allegations of scandal, conspiracy, and cover-up.
