Comment: Do you know if in fact Hilary Clinton did decorate one of the white house Christmas trees with condoms back in 1996??? We have an ongoing 'discussion' on this and I would like to put it to rest!

I think this came up before because I remember researching it before. Unfortunately, I can't find what I found before. But here's what I remember and what I did find this time.
This story, as it is told, originated with Gary Aldrich, the former FBI agent, who wrote a "tell all" book. He alleges that the ornaments were placed on the Blue Room -- a public part of the White House -- tree. Some say the ornanments weren't "pornographic" but "occult" and a quick google will tell you the reference for each item.
What I found the first time I checked this out was that there was indeed a tree with condoms on it. But it was a small tree in a private office in the White House. I don't remember clearly if it was the First Lady's tree or a member of her staff's. It was a joke.
Maybe someone with more time at the moment can find more. Or maybe I will get a chance to look deeper later.
Oh yeah, the story also goes that Tipper Gore was so offended when she saw the alleged Blue Room tree at the White House Christmas party that she punched Hillary between the eyes and knocked her flat on the floor before storming out.
