SOSA SET TO BE GUEST OF CLINTON'S AT STATE OF THE UNION
Published January 19, 1999
SAMMY SOSA will be the guest of PRESIDENT CLINTON during tonight's State of the Union address, according to King & Orin of the N.Y. POST. Sosa was flying in from the Dominican Republic and will "probably" sit with First Lady HILLARY CLINTON (N.Y. TIMES, 1/19). Meanwhile, Ira Berkow reports that Sosa was a "no-show" at the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) dinner last night in N.Y. at which he was to be honored. CORE's Gen. Counsel MEL SACHS said that Sosa's appearance had been "confirmed three times but then 'they kept making more and more demands.'" Sosa's agent ADAM KATZ called the statements a "distortion" (N.Y. TIMES, 1/19).
