May 1999 Issue


Susan McDougal, a key figure in the Whitewater investigation involving President Bill Clinton and Hillary Clinton, will speak at the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners' (ACFE) Annual Fraud Conference, to take place July 25­30, 1999, at Caesar's Palace in Las Vegas.

Her presentation is entitled "Why I Was Acquitted of Embezzlement" and will focus on the embezzlement case brought against her by conductor Zubin Mehta and his wife, Nancy. The Mehtas accused McDougal of stealing $50,000 from them while she was their bookkeeper and personal assistant. McDougal was found not guilty on all charges last November. According to the ACFE, she is not being compensated for her presentation.

"For those of us that investigate allegations of fraud, the perspective of someone who has been on the other side of the fence is very valuable," said Joseph T. Wells, ACFE founder and chair.

The conference will also explore fraud in computer technology, government, health care, insurance, banking, internal auditing, and public accounting. For more information, contact the ACFE at (800) 245-3321 or *
