A museum in Las Vegas is offering Monica Lewinsky $1 million dollars for the dress that she wore during her tryst with then-President Bill Clinton, the New York Daily News reported on the weekend.

Previously, The Las Vegas Erotic Heritage Museum had offered to pay Lewinsky $250,000 for the dress that was stained with the former president's DNA, according to the report.

In a letter to the former White House intern dated Feb. 20, Victoria Hartmann, the executive director of the museum said she wants to make the dress a part of an exhibit “examining the private relationships of people in power, gender dynamics (and) politics,” the news outlet reported.  

The Daily News said the exhibit is ongoing and it also contains “items of an intimate nature” belonging to Gennifer Flowers, an actress who claimed to have an affair with Clinton.

The exhibit “will serve to bring awareness to the complexities of sexual relationships and how they are perceived by Americans, especially when it involves those we put our trust in as leaders,” the paper quoted Hartmann's letter as stating.

Lewinsky has not yet responded to the offer the paper reported.
