The book, Whores: Why and How I Came to Fight the Establishment, recounts Klayman’s 15 years of battling politicians, governments and corporations he views as corrupt.
Klayman’s preferred method of warfare is the lawsuit, and his most notable targets have included former President Bill ClintonWilliam (Bill) Jefferson ClintonMaxwell accuser testifies the British socialite was present when Epstein abuse occurred Epstein pilot testifies Maxwell was 'number two' in operation Federal judge changes his mind about stepping down, eliminating vacancy for Biden to fill MORE, former Vice President Dick Cheney and the government of Iran, which Klayman recently sued for $10 trillion on account of its human-rights abuses.
“Tehran is the most important thing that’s going on right now,” Klayman told ITK. “Those young people can change everything. And we’re not helping them.”
At times, the book reads like a legal thriller in which Klayman is the hero; at others, like a classic political memoir, but with plenty of conspiracy theory and conservative politics throughout.
Klayman, who launched an unsuccessful bid for the Senate in 2004, filed numerous suits against the Clintons in the 1990s over financial dealings. But even though Klayman ran as a Republican, he’s not happy with the GOP, either.
Asked about the Republican front-runners in the 2012 presidential election, Klayman scoffed: “No one interests me. [Former Alaska Gov. Sarah] Palin’s not the answer. We don’t know who she is.” He then expressed some less-than-diplomatic opinions about other GOP aspirants.
Klayman had some advice for Palin, however. “When I first met Jeb Bush in 1994, he was a blank slate, just faking his way through the conversation. But he educated himself and became an intellectual of sorts. Palin can do what Jeb Bush did.”

When he’s not battling the powers that be, Klayman takes to the stage. “I do stand-up sometimes at night at the Buddha bar in Boca Raton,” he said. “It’s good practice, and you can make a lot of points using humor.
“I’m an optimist. I’m trying to make things better, and I wouldn’t do this if I didn’t believe it could be done.”
