20 Forgotten Bush Scandals

The Daily Beast wrote:

In an interview with Fox News on Sunday, George H.W. Bush congratulated his son on running a “clean operation." Bush apparently wasn’t paying very close attention. Everyone remembers weapons of mass destruction, the US attorney firings. But historians will note that those are only the beginning of the Bush administration scandals…

The Bush administration will leave the annals of presidential disrepute several times thicker than it found them. There’s Iraq, the hospital visit to John Ashcroft, the US attorney firings. But historians will note that those are only the beginning of the Bush administration scandals. Does the name Jeff Gannon ring a bell? Boxgate? What about the anti-prostitution AIDS tsar who purchased the services of—wait for it—the D.C. Madam? The Daily Beast has put together 20 of Bush’s greatest forgotten scandals.

Sex and Shoplifting

1) In March 2006, Claude Allen, Bush's top domestic policy aide, was arrested when he tried to return items he had shoplifted from Target for cash refunds. Allen, who made $161,000 a year, blamed stress from Hurricane Katrina.

2) In 2005, bloggers pricked up their ears when a reporter named Jeff Gannon asked a softball question at a Bush press conference. Some sleuthing turned up nude photos of Gannon—real name: James Guckert—on male escort websites.

......



Full list with links at link.

We forget the War Chimp is part of a dynasty of criminals but now Daddy is out there promoting the idea of a clean operation—what a load of crap.

Daddy wants to keep the dynasty's poop flowing through the White House, too. He'd like to see Jeb (the fat one who gave us W and Katherine Harris in 2000, along with a little help from their friends in the Supreme Court) run for president. PUH-LEEZE...no more Bushes! :evil: :evil: :evil:
