Hillary Clinton, the likely Democratic presidential candidate who is traveling the United States to speak against unequal pay for women, paid her own female employees much less than her male staffers when she was a U.S. senator from New York, according to a new report. 

The Washington Free Beacon found that she paid women about 72 cents for each dollar she paid to men who worked in her Senate office from 2002 to 2008. Clinton was sworn in on Jan. 3, 2001, and served until Jan. 21, 2009, when she assumed the position of secretary of state.

During her years on Capitol Hill, the median annual salary for a female staffer in Clinton’s office was $15,708.38 less than the comparable pay of a male employee, the Free Beacon found in an analysis of official Senate expenditure reports.

The revelations of her unequal pay for male and female employees comes as the issue of pay equity reignited a national debate that echoed from the stage of the Oscars’ celebration in Hollywood on Sunday.

Actress Patricia Arquette, in her Oscar acceptance remarks, demanded “wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America.”

Valeria Jarrett, President Barack Obama’s most trusted aide, immediately took up the call, even though the White House also violates pay equity.

Hillary Clinton’s Long History of Targeting Women

Hillary Clinton’s expected presidential campaign is being built around women’s issues, but women who have gotten in the way of her family’s political goals in the past have often been subjected to her wrath.

As Clinton has appeared at multiple events for women over the past several weeks, her record as an advocate for women has come under increased scrutiny.

Women who have accused her husband, former President Bill Clinton, of sexual misconduct have received special criticism from the former first lady.

One victim of Clinton’s wrath was Monica Lewinsky, whom Clinton called a “narcissistic loony toon” in private conversations with close friend Diane Blair.

Lewinsky was not the only woman who had a sexual relationship with Bill targeted by Hillary: she called Gennifer Flowers “trailer trash.”

Flowers alleged in a 2000 lawsuit that Clinton created and ran a “war room” during the 1992 campaign to “smear, defame, and harm” adversaries such as herself.

Prior to the 1992 election, Clinton worked to get sworn statements from all the women Bill was rumored to have slept with who said the rumors were false. She interviewed some of the women herself, according to Carl Bernstein’s A Woman in Charge.

Kathleen Willey, who claimed Bill Clinton sexually harassed her during his first term as president, said Hillary Clinton made it a point to launch a “terror campaign” against her and all other women.

“She is the war on women, as far as I’m concerned, because with every woman that she’s found out about—and she made it a point to find out who every woman had been that’s crossed his path over the years—she’s orchestrated a terror campaign against every one of these women, including me,” said Willey.

One of those women was Juanita Broaddrick, who says Hillary Clinton threatened her in person two weeks after she claimed Bill Clinton raped her.

Hillary’s aggressive attitude was not limited to those who accused her husband of sexual misconduct: other men received the benefit of the doubt from Hillary when she needed their support politically. When former Sen. Bob Packwood was accused of sexual harassment, Clinton told her friend Blair that she was “tired of all those whiney women,” and that she needed Packwood on health care.

Hillary has also suggested that Bill’s problems with women are the fault of a woman: his mother.

Clinton attempted to explain to Lucinda Franks that Bill’s infidelity is rooted in his abused childhood, stating during an interview that he was abused and that “when a mother does what she does, it affects you forever.”

Clinton’s remarks concerning her husband’s tough childhood came in response to a question about how “Bill’s sexual addiction began.”

“I am not going into it, but I’ll say that when this happens in children, it scars you,” said Clinton. “You keep looking in all the wrong places for the parent who abused you.”
