Spinning for a Tough New Crowd

SHARE

Former White House Press Secretary Joe Lockhart is telling stories again, but this time it's not to the press corps. Lockhart, who flacked for President Clinton, will deliver his true-life tale "Impeachment Day" next week at Washington's historic Lincoln Theatre as part of a night of storytelling sponsored by the Moth, a New York-based literary series. Lockhart has spun the yarn for audiences in Aspen and New York, but he's much more nervous this time around. "People outside Washington are fascinated by a peek behind the curtain," he says. "But people in Washington live behind the curtain." Lockhart says this will be the last time he tells the tale.
