Who was Parker Dozhier and why was he called a "bag man"?

By Justin Bynum AAA
A:

Arkansas bait shop owner Parker Dozhier allegedly paid David Hale, the Independent Counsel's key witness for confidential information during the Whitewater Investigation. In exchange for these alleged payments, Hale passed along information from the Independent Counsel's office to Dozhier who, in turn, relayed that information to a right-wing magazine called The American Spectator.

Dozhier's activities took place under the umbrella of the Arkansas Project: a dirty-tricks campaign funded by billionaire Richard Mellon Scaife designed to damage then-President Bill Clinton. According to a former girlfriend, Dozhier received approximately $200,000 for his affiliation with the Arkansas Project.

For his part, Dozhier insists he never made payments to David Hale for confidential information. He does, however, admit to receiving $35,000 in exchange for intelligence-gathering activities for The American Spectator. At present, Parker Dozhier has never been charged with any crime.
