Bush's Kid Brother Neil Under Investigation for Misusing Federal Funds

This post, written by Howie Klein, originally appeared on Down With Tyranny!

I'm trying to remember which Bush brother was the bank-robber. It was Neil, wasn't it? Let's see... Google... "Bush" plus "Silverado"... Yes indeed. It took me right to a Washington Post story from 2003 entitled The Relatively Charmed Life Of Neil Bush-- Despite Silverado and Voodoo, Fortune Still Smiles on the President's Brother. Oh, I had forgotten he's also a sleazy pervert.
Ah, it's nice to be Neil Bush.
When you're Neil Bush, rich people from all over the world are eager to invest money in your businesses, even though your businesses have a history of crashing and burning in spectacular fashion.
When you're Neil Bush, you'll be sitting in a hotel room in Thailand or Hong Kong, minding your own business, when suddenly there's a knock at the door. You answer it and a comely woman strolls in and has sex with you.
Yep, I forgot all about that messy, messy divorce. Oh, and I forgot about the millions of dollars in bribes the Chinese funneled into the Bush family through Neil. See, and you thought all that poison being shipped into America from China was just Miss McConnell's fault. The Bushes are as compromised as McConnell.

Anyway, like most of us I forgot all about that stuff. But a story in this morning's NY Times is bringing unwanted attention back to the someone almost as black a sheep in the Bush Family as George W. (Well... that's an exaggeration; he only cost the American taxpayers a measly billion dollars from his malfeasance at Silverado Savings and Loan.) After gambling in the commodities markets and losing at everything he's put his hand to-- or at least losing his hapless (or shrewd) investors' money-- he decided to get into the lucrative No Child Left Behind business. Is it any wonder edumacation is all mucked up under the Bush Regime?
The inspector general of the Department of Education has said he will examine whether federal money was inappropriately used by three states to buy educational products from a company owned by Neil Bush, the president's brother.
