(Newser) – Move over, Monica. President Clinton had his eye on another young political staffer, and she’s recounting at least one incident with him in her upcoming tell-all. During the 2000 G8 Summit in Japan, Clinton allegedly called Stacy Parker Aab, then 26, to his room and embraced her on the balcony—for an inappropriate length of time, she writes—as he told her he’d always admired her. Scandal!

The book also recounts visiting Steven Spielberg's Hamptons home to find Kate Capshaw waiting to greet the president in a bathing suit—leaving Hillary unruffled, the New York Daily News reports. “Ms. Capshaw might have just been another woman showing off her best bits to the president,” Aab writes in Government Girl: Young and Female in the White House, due out January. “Mrs. Clinton had seen this scene before.”
