Operation Neil Bush?s Freedom

| June 9, 2003

Affairs, savings and loan schemes, and an ex-wife threatening a tell-all book?Neil Bush certainly has been busy. Bill Berkowitz, writing for WorkingForChange, reports of various offenses committed by George W. Bush?s brother, Neil. The most egregious fault relates to his treatment of his wife and two children in the early stages of his divorce proceedings. Neil offered them a paltry $1,000 per month alimony though he reported an income of more than $800,000. Unfortunately for Neil, his wife decided to fight back by threatening to write an insider biography of the Bush family. This biography would reveal that the ?Bushes are far more pragmatic and calculating than has ever been seen before.? Luckily for the Bush family, or perhaps because of some serious strong-arming, Neil Bush increased the alimony offer, and his wife put the book project on hold, proving again that for some families secrets must be kept at any cost.
