    (May 17, 1937- )
    Born in Newport News, Virginia
    Birth name was Hazel Reid
    US Secretary of Energy (1993-97)
    As Energy Secretary, she was criticized for spending too lavishly during overseas trips, such as taking a 76 person entourage to India or chartering Madonna's jet.
    She hired a consulting firm to rate reporters for how friendly or hostile their stories about her were.
    She reportedly routinely manipulated statistics to exaggerate the Department of Energy's record on awarding contracts to businesses owned by women and minorities.
    She allegedly agreed to meet with Chinese officials in exchange for a $25,000 donation to her favorite charity.
    She declassified Cold War era documents showing that the government had used American citizens as guinea pigs in radiation experiments.
    She stood up for whistleblowers at nuclear power plants, announcing a 'zero tolerance' policy towards retaliation against them.
    An investigation by Attorney General Janet Reno found there was 'no evidence' she had solicited the $25,000 donation.
