Jordan recommended Lewinsky for job

WASHINGTON, Jan. 21 -- Revlon is confirming that a former White House intern accused of being involved in a sexual relationship with President Clinton received a job referral from Vernon Jordan, a presidential confidant who allegedly conspired to cover-up the alleged affair. Revlon said in a statement today that it offered Monica Lewinsky a position in public relations, but, 'In light of today's events the company is informing Ms. Lewinsky that it will take no further action at this time on her employment application.'

The cosmetics giant says Lewinsky was referred to Revlon-affiliate MacAndrews & Forbes by Jordan, a member of the board of directors of Revlon. Jordan has been accused of conspiring to cover up the alleged affair on Clinton's behalf. In the statement Revlon said, 'She was interviewed in December 1997 and January 1998. Thereafter she was offered a position as a public relations administrator at Revlon.' Revlon said it will cooperate with the investigation by independent counsel Kenneth Starr, but 'shall have no further comment on this matter.' ---
