(Newser) – For the second time in a week Chelsea Clinton has been asked a question about the sex scandal involving White House intern Monica Lewinsky that cast a shadow over her father's presidency. When it happened at North Carolina State University yesterday, just as it did at Butler University last week, the former first daughter responded the same way: "It’s none of your business."

That is "something that is personal to my family," she said. "I'm sure there are things that are personal to your family that you don't think are anyone else's business, either." Then she added: "I don't think you should be voting for or against my mother because of my father.''
