I'm not saying that Jean Marbella deliberately tried to mislead readers in her recent column ("In all these sex scandals, see a double standard," Nov. 18) in which she implied that Bill Clinton had been impeached because he had had a sexual affair with a female intern in The White House.

Nor am I saying that she tried to excuse his outrageous behavior by asserting, "...there's no shame in being a stud."

Truth be told, however, President Clinton was impeached by the House of Representatives for committing perjury before a grand jury, and for obstructing justice.

Ms. Marbella knows that, or should.
