Jeb Bush’s Scandals

I’m writing this because Jeb Bush is running for president, and people need to know the truth about him BEFORE election time.

Currently Jeb Bush is under investigation by Florida Attorney Steve Medina on charges of corruption involving Charles Koch, David Koch, Florida Governor Rick Scott, and presidential candidate, Jeb Bush. They are part of a deal made that allows the Koch Industries’ highly profitable paper and pulp company, Georgia Pacific, to dump millions of gallons of toxic waste per day, into St. John’s River in Florida.

The Jeb Bush administration (1999-2007), over the objection of then Attorney General Charlie Crist, gave preliminary approval for a Georgia-Pacific pipeline from its Palatka paper mill to the St. Johns River.

Now in Bush’s Presidential campaign his biggest contributors are the aforementioned Koch Brothers. Bush’s association with the Koch Brothers, and many other unscrupulous, and often criminal businessmen goes back decades.

In1984 Jeb Bush was then the chairman of the Dade county Republican party and

Camilo Padreda a close family friend, was its finance chairman. Padreda later pleaded guilty to defrauding the housing and urban development department of millions of dollars during the 1980s.

In 1985 Bush’s real estate firm received $75,000 from Miguel Recary, who never actually bought any property (yes a payoff). Recary was under investigation for Medicare Fraud. Jeb’s father George Bush, then Vice President interceded.

In 1986 Bush was a member of the board of The Private Bank and Trust which failed after federal regulators seized the organization and found that “it had been ‘making investments contrary to client instructions and putting funds in companies affiliated with or managed by the bank.

In 1989 Bush formed Bush-El to market MWI’s water pumps internationally. On one of Bush’s trips to Nigeria to help sell them MWI pumps in 1991, that company’s corporate pilot claimed he saw a suitcase full of cash — an apparent bribe for Nigerian officials.

In 1995, Jeb joined the board of directors of Ideon Group, a credit card registry service

Bush resigned soon after that. And the shareholders of Ideon filed suit against Bush and other directors, alleging stock manipulation.

In 2007, five months after his tenure as governor, Jeb Bush joined the world financial services behemoth Lehman Brothers as a paid consultant. Two month later Lehman started its slide from “risky” mortgages.

Later in 2007 Jeb joined the board of directors of Ideon Group, a credit card registry service. The Securities and Exchange Commission charged InnoVida in 2012 with “defrauding investors in an offering fraud scheme”.

Since joining the board of directors of Tenet Healthcare in April 2007, Jeb Bush has received more than $2 million in fees and stock awards. Tenet paid $900 million in fees to settle claims that it overbilled Medicare in the 1990s.

In 2010 Bush was elected director for Swisher Hygiene Inc. Shareholder lawsuits followed against Bush and his colleagues, “accusing him and fellow board members of insufficient oversight. Swisher Hygiene agreed to a class-action settlement.

Jeb Bush used his private e-mail account as Florida governor to discuss security and military issues such as troop deployments to the Middle East and the protection of nuclear plants, according to a review of publicly released records.

If Jeb was a member of any other family he would have been in PRISON decades ago. And now he wants to be President.
