Post Stories on Lewinsky Media Coverage

Full Coverage: Including More Post Stories

Tuesday, Sept. 22, 1998
A chart published Sunday of members of Congress who have called for President Clinton to resign over the Monica S. Lewinsky affair mistakenly included Rep. Jack Kingston (R-Ga.). It also omitted the name of Sen. Robert C. Smith (R-N.H.), who has called for Clinton's resignation. spacer

"Calling for his resignation is different than calling for his impeachment. We're saying he should have the decency to leave office on his own and save the country from the turmoil this review is going to cause."
-- Rep. George Purdy Radanovich (R-Calif.)

"The president should resign for the good of the country."
-- House Majority Whip Tom DeLay (R-Tex.)

"I believe the appropriate next step for this president is to resign ... to save our nation from the trauma of a continued national soap opera that is distracting, and now I think is potentially dangerous."
-- Sen. Dan Coats (R-Ind.)
