Only In Arkansas: Lawyer McDougal

Hollywood might have to delay work on that movie bio we recently noted on Whitewater figure Susan McDougal. She's trying to change the ending. We've confirmed that the former FOB wants to be a lawyer.

She's applied to the University of Arkansas-Little Rock William H. Bowen School of Law. McDougal was pardoned for her conviction on Whitewater-related fraud charges, so that wouldn't block her from joining the bar. But legal experts say those blemishes might run her afoul of the good character requirement.
