"A non-journalist, gossip monger on the internet had started this a week ago without any facts."

The "Drudge Report" an online political gossip site -- strongly suggested last week that during Hillary Clinton's campaign for the New York Senate seat, she had rewarded big donors with overnight stays at the White House and the Presidential retreat at Camp David.

(SOT/JOE LOCKHART, WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN)

"We have fallen into too easy a habit in this town of just asserting charges without checking them out."

So the White House released its private list of more than 400 overnight guests -- including a string of celebreties such as Meg Ryan and Dennis Quaid, Will Smith, Danny Devito and others.

NAT/SOT HILLARY CAMPAIGN



Most of the names do not appear on campaign contributions lists -- in fact, only ONE in FOUR made any contrubtions to Mrs. Clinton's Senate campaign.

But those who did contribute -- contributed big -- not to Hillary Clinton, but to the Democratic Party. Many donors made six figure contributions.

Her opponent, Republican Rick Lazo criticized the First Lady for abusing her power by having contgirbutors stay overnight.

While Mrs. Clinton admits some contributors HAVE stayed -- she insists the invitations were not made in return for money.

(SOT/JOE LOCKHART, WHITE HOUSE SPOKESMAN)

"Who do you expect you would you go to if you were running for office other than your friends!"
