The White House

Office of the Press Secretary

For Immediate Release May 3, 1993

Statement of Communications Director George Stephanopoulos

The President regrets the misunderstanding that may have been caused by any hyperbole in his jokes at Saturday's White House Correspondents dinner. While Senator Dole did make the case that the Wichita boathouse is a legitimate CDBG project, the potential cost to the taxpayers is not as high as stated in the President's joke.
