JONES' DESCRIPTION OF CLINTON DENIED

Lawyers for President Clinton insisted he doesn't have the "distinguishing characteristics" described by Paula Jones, as her attorney said the claim is only part of her sexual harassment lawsuit.

Robert Bennett, the president's lead attorney, dismissed as "baseless" a document in which Mrs. Jones purportedly describes characteristics in Clinton's genital area.

The lawyer said he received a copy of the document last week, three years after Mrs. Jones referred to it during a news conference after she filed the lawsuit against Clinton.

"This was just an effort to humiliate and embarrass the president, and at the appropriate time we will show that it is absolutely baseless and without merit," Bennett said.

Mrs. Jones claims Clinton exposed himself to her in a Little Rock hotel room in May 1991 while he was governor and she worked for a state economic office. The document purports to describe "distinguishing characteristics" she said she saw on his body during the alleged encounter.

Clinton denies her allegations. Trial is set to begin May 27.
