Can't argue with you there. While I don't care for the woman in the least, I can respect that she is a force to be reckoned with and she couldn't get that without fighting her way to the top.

3 2 - James Milan - Found decapitated. However, the Coroner ruled his death was due to natural causes".
Has no one commented on the bolded one yet.. LOL, I thought that one would be internet gold!
James Milan Milam had information on the Ives & Henry deaths. He was decapitated. The state Medical examiner, Fahmy Malak, initially ruled death due to natural causes, claiming that the victim's small dog had eaten the head, which was later recovered from a trash bin several blocks away.
But the retiring Guam medical examiner, Dr. Hee-Yong Park, has raised questions about Malak's credibility because of a misstatement of credentials on his resume. And, since then, the controversy has grown with disclosures in Pacific Daily News about the controversies surrounding Malak in Arkansas.
Malak never told members of the commission seeking to fill the position of his troubled tenure in Arkansas, Guam Attorney General Elizabeth Barrett-Anderson has said. Anderson chairs the Postmortem Examination Commission, which is in charge of finding a new medical examiner.
Malak resigned after nearly 12 years as medical examiner amid a growing controversy over his rulings. An ad hoc group, VOMIT, (Victims of Malak's Incredible Testimony) also has protested Malak's continued employment in a state job. Malak's job performance also has been an issue in the presidential race. Gov. Bill Clinton has had to defend the state's longtime employment of Malak amid ongoing controversy. Questions also have been raised by the Los Angeles Times and NBC, among others, about Malak's findings in the case of an assault victim who died during a surgery in which Clinton's mother was the nurse anesthetist. (The case occurred while Clinton was out of office and independent pathologists have concurred with Malak's findings in the case.)
Another case involved James "Dewey" Milam whose body was found without the head. In this case, Malak ruled the cause of death to be an ulcer. Although Milam's head had been clearly severed with a knife, Malak claimed the family pooch had bitten off the head, eaten the entire thing, and then regurgitated it. Malak says he tested the dog's vomit and found traces of Milam's brain and skull. Unfortunately for Dr. Malak, Milam's head was later found. Malak, it turns out, had made up the entire story. Media coverage of Malak's dishonest rulings resulted in a massive public outcry calling for his removal from office.
Clinton's Ties to Controversial Medical Examiner Questioned
Three weeks before Clinton announced his presidential candidacy last Oct. 3, he pushed Malak, who was appointed during his first gubernatorial term, to resign. But then the Clinton Administration found Malak another well-paying job in state government.
It prompted renewed questions about a conflict of interest growing out of Malak's ruling in 1981 that involved Clinton's mother. That ruling, which came between terms when Clinton was out of office, helped Clinton's mother avoid legal scrutiny in one patient's death--while she was defending herself in a medical malpractice lawsuit stemming from the death of another patient.
The conflict-of-interest questions have been raised by a county coroner, by Malak critics and by a writer for the Arkansas Gazette. The writer, Max Brantley, a columnist for the Gazette at the time and now editor of the weekly Arkansas Times, said about Malak's resignation and his new position: "We may never know why Malak enjoyed such strong support." He added that "critics will note, accurately, that Malak has made an autopsy finding helpful to Clinton's mother."
At the time of the Ives/Henry first autopsies, Arkansas State Medical Examiner, Dr. Fahmy Malak's boss was the head of the State Medical Commission, Dr. Joycelyn Elders. Dr. Elders answered directly to then Arkansas Gov. Bill Clinton.
1987: In 1987, then-Governor Bill Clinton appointed Elders as Director of the Arkansas Department of Health.
1992: In 1992, she was elected President of the Association of State and Territorial Health Officers.
1993: In January 1993, Bill Clinton appointed her the United States Surgeon General, making her the first African American and the second woman (following Antonia Novello) to hold the position.
