decency to keep his mouth shut?” Hulie Freeze pleaded for decorum in the Governor’s Mansion. “There must be a place somewhere for dignity and refinement and I can think of no better place than in high office,” he wrote. But the public is not buying William’s appeal. On Tuesday, March 27, the UT chapter of the National Organization of Women protested Claytie’s rape remark at Williams’s Austin headquarters. Another demonstration was reported at Clayton Williams’s Houston campaign headquarters. Bill Kenyon, the Williams campaign press secretary, held court in his office, attempting to perform damage control. “Clayton has apologized, spoken with a great deal of candor, admitted his remarks were insensitive,” he said. Kenyon contrasted Williams’s forthrightness with Ann Richards’s behavior after the disclosure of her 1976 “wetbacks” remark, when, he claimed, Richards “went into hiding for three days.” Kenyon claimed that Williams was actu ally gaining sympathy for his misfortunes at the hands of the press. “On Sunday [March the 25th] we had a lot of harsh phone calls,” he said. “By today they’re running a little in our favor.” But Williams’s remark has assumed dimensions beyond newpaper letters and angry phone calls. On Thursday, March 29, an Austin woman was raped. The rapist, according to police reports, ordered the victim to “relax and enjoy it…Like Clayton Williams said, it’s inevitable.” FUTUM COMMUNICATIONS.
