Susan Carpenter-McMillan

Susan Carpenter-McMillan (born circa 1949) was a senior adviser to Paula Jones during the Lewinsky scandal and headed the Paula Jones Legal Defense Fund. In 1997 Clinton was willing to settle the lawsuit that Jones brought against him for $700,000. Carpenter-McMillan advised Jones to reject Clinton's offer because the offer did not include an apology. Jones followed Carpenter-McMillan's advice, which contradicted the advice she received from her lawyers, Gilbert Davis and Joseph Cammarata. Jones eventually settled the case with Clinton for $850,000 and no apology.
In 2000 Carpenter-McMillan was not successful when she ran for the California State Assembly against Carol Liu.
Carpenter-McMillan was married to attorney William McMillan whom she divorced in 1998. She has two children.
