ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: U.S. Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton on Thursday (December 3) was asked by a young supporter at a campaign stop in New hampshire whether she thinks that all sexual assault victims should be believed about their allegations, including her own husband's former accusers. The young woman had named among others Paula Jones and Juanita Broaddrick, who had lodged sexual harassment complaints against the former president at various times of his political career. "Everybody should be believed at first before they are disbelieved based on evidence," Clinton replied, to applause. Jones was at the center of a sex scandal that surrounded Clinton in the early 1990s. She had accused him of exposing himself to her and requesting that she perform oral sex in a Little Rock, Arkansas hotel room in 1991.
