Jeb Bush looted Florida pension funds to fund his brother's presidential campaign
When word got out that creepy Jeb might be running for prez, the crap started hitting the fan. The crap being that he was more moderate and more intelligent than his brother. Nothing could be further from the truth. He is a true member of the Bush clan. They've never found a rich man they didn't like or think deserved special handling by the government. Never turn your back on a member of the Bush clan!
There were many things he did wrong while governor of Florida, but this may be one of the most egregious and we're just learning about it now. What does that say about our MSM?
While Jeb Bush was governor of Florida, state pension officials committed at least $1.7 billion to financial firms whose executives were “Pioneer” fundraisers for his brother’s presidential campaigns. To achieve Pioneer status, the fundraisers had to amass at least $100,000 worth of bundled contributions to one of George W. Bush’s campaigns.
An International Business Times analysis of Florida government documents and a list of George W. Bush’s bundlers compiled by Public Citizen found that 11 firms that received new Florida pension investments under Jeb Bush were Pioneers. IBTimes also analyzed data from the Florida Division of Elections and Political Moneyline to determine how much money executives from those firms donated directly to Jeb Bush’s campaigns, George W. Bush’s campaigns, the Republican National Committee and the Republican Party of Florida between 1998 and 2006.
The crooks really have been in charge!
