Susan McDougal,

ever-incarcerated Whitewater figure, was charged with embezzlement and tax fraud in a case unrelated to the Arkansas land deal. The latest charges were brought by conductor Zubin Mehta and his wife, for whom McDougal was bookkeeper and personal assistant from 1989 to 1992. After serving 18 months in prison for refusing to answer questions about President and Mrs. Clinton before the Whitewater grand jury, McDougal immediately began a 90-day detention at home for fraud in the Whitewater dealings. Although some felt her imprisonment for sticking to her principles in the Clinton investigation gave her a saintly aura, the embezzlement charges knocked her off the pedestal. Ex-husband Jim McDougal, also a key Whitewater figure, made headlines in March when he died in prison due to heart failure. President Clinton pardoned Susan McDougal shortly before he left office in 2001.
