In 2000, President Clinton and his wife started furnishing their newly purchased home in New York. In addition to shipping $28,500 worth of White House furniture to Chappaqua, they also began accepting lavish gifts and furnishing from friends and supporters. The reported total values of these personal gifts was approximately $190,000.
In 2001, following public disclosure and criticism, the White House white trash couple agreed to return White House furnishings they had had no right to take and also pay $86,000 which they said was the value of the gifts they had received.
According to White House press secretary Ari Fleischer, Clinton staffers deliberately removed the letter “W” from 100 computer keyboards, vandalized or deliberately moved plugs to 75 telephones and six fax machines, cut ten phone lines, wrote obscene graffiti and overturned office furniture. They also threw a large amount of usable office supplies in the trash.
In the White House itself, a photocopy machine was left with nude photos hidden in the paper tray so they would come out from time to time mixed in with other copies.
Rumors of damage to or pilfering from Air Force One were declared false by both President Bush and the plane’s Chief Steward.
