Bill and Hillary Clinton, seeking a taxpayer bailout of more than $3.5 million, and a host of other scandal players are asking for a total of $7.8 million to cover legal bills stemming from the independent counsel`s probe. Monica Lewinsky wants $1.2 million, and Clinton pal Vernon Jordan, who helped Lewinsky find a New York City job, has put in for a $303,000 reimbursement. A federal three-judge panel will make the final decision about who gets how much. One factor that`s not considered by the court is the ability of applicants to pay their legal bills. The Clintons, Jordan and Lewinsky are wealthy by almost any standard.
