Lawyer CANDICE E JACKSON was so disgusted Clinton virtually ignored his infidelities in his bestselling autobiography MY LIFE, she wrote THEIR LIVES - THE WOMEN TARGETED BY THE CLINTON MACHINE, to expose several women she claims he sexually abused.

Jackson's controversial tome focuses on seven women, including Clinton's alleged mistress, GENNIFER FLOWERS, radio host SALLY PERDUE, White House intern MONICA LEWINSKY and the alleged rape victim, JUANITA BROADDRICK.

Broaddrick says she met Clinton - then the Arkansas Attorney General - in 1978, when he made a campaign stop at the nursing home where she worked.

And she alleges he asked if he could have a coffee with her in her hotel room to avoid reporters, but when she let him in, he reportedly forced her onto the bed and raped her.

She claims she met him again in 1991, weeks before he announced his Democratic Party candidacy for Presidency, and attempted a profuse apology - he later gave her a position on a state quango concerned with nursing homes.

Broaddrick told Jackson, "It was a really panicky situation. I was even at the point where I was getting very noisy, you know, yelling to please stop.

And that's when (Clinton) pressed down on my right shoulder and he bit my lip.

"When everything was over with, he got up and straightened himself, and I was crying at that moment. He walked to the door and calmly put on his sunglasses.

And before he went out the door, he said, 'You'd better put some ice on that.'"
