COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) – Monica Lewinsky and former President Bill Clinton are making unrelated presentations in Ohio’s capital city in the same month.
The 42-year-old Lewinsky headlines a fundraiser for the Jewish Federation of Columbus on Thursday. She has been traveling the country on a campaign to combat a cyberbullying epidemic in which she says she was “patient zero.”
Lewinsky says in 1998 she was the “first person to have their reputation destroyed” online amid revelations of her sexual relationship with Clinton. Since then, cyberbullying has been blamed for teen suicides and celebrity exploitation.
Two weeks after Lewinsky’s appearance, Clinton is scheduled to be in Columbus to deliver a presentation for Ohio State University’s John Glenn College of Public Affairs. Clinton’s appearance is not directly tied to the presidential campaign of wife, Hillary.
