To those who have seen "The Ernest Green Story" on television's Disney Channel, he is a heroic figure--the remarkably courageous young man who helped integrate Little Rock's Central High School in the mid-1950s. But to Justice Department and congressional investigators probing Democratic fund-raising practices, Ernest G.
