Prominent Donor Testifies Before Lewinsky Grand Jury

WASHINGTON (AllPolitics, May 21) -- Walter Kaye, a retired insurance executive and prominent Democratic contributor, appeared Thursday before the Monica Lewinsky grand jury.

Neither Kaye nor his attorney, Richard Holiman, made any comments after Kaye's morning appearance. In 1995, it was Kaye who recommended Lewinsky, a family friend, for a White House internship. Kaye has given more than $300,000 to the Democrats in recent years.

The grand jury is looking into reports that President Bill Clinton had a sexual relationship with Lewinsky and encouraged her to lie about it under oath. Clinton has denied the accusations.

Kaye's name came up early on in the Lewinsky saga, when it was reported that Clinton wore a tie Lewinsky gave him during a State of the Union address. Kaye disputed that claim, saying he gave Clinton the tie in question.

Kaye also has testified before Whitewater prosecutor Ken Starr's grand jury in Little Rock, Ark., about a $1,000 donation he made to Susan McDougal's legal defense fund.

And Kaye's name showed up on a 1997 list of people who had stayed over in the White House's Lincoln Bedroom, after allegations that Clinton had rewarded big donors with White House sleepovers.

Kris Ensgov, a personal aide to Clinton, was testifying Thursday afternoon before the grand jury. This is his second appearance.
