The Washington Free Beacon has released an audio recording from the early 1980’s which features Hillary Clinton discussing a 1975 criminal case on which she served as the court-appointed attorney defending an accused child rapist. The story itself has been known for a few years, but the audio recordings haven’t before been released.
Some are attempting to re-bury the WFB’s scoop as “old news,” among them, the Gawker-owned feminist website Jezebel:

“Old stories” about politicians aren’t worth bringing up? Jezebel, your self-awareness needs tweaking:

Jezebel’s “old story” rule is apparently suspended if the flashback is from 1983, the politician in question is a Republican and the subject isn’t child rape, but rather dog poop:
