"The Bush Chronicles"?

Back in the Nineties, during the Clinton Regime, some clowns were peddling a videotape called "The Clinton Chronicles" that claimed to prove that Bill and Hillary! and their cronies were responsible for dozens of murders of people who crossed them. The Mena, AR airport was mentioned and whatnot - it's all too long ago to remember well, but suffice to say, they were smoking rope.

Well, it appears that the rope has switched sides as sites like Report From Outside the Beltway are saying that Jeb Bush had some guy murdered who was looking into some money-laundering scheme involving the Florida toll road system.


FLORIDA PANHANDLE [love the dateline], June 10, 2005 -- Experienced federal investigators [Who?], acting independently, have discovered a covert funding channel used by the 2000 and 2004 Bush-Cheney campaigns and the administrations of Jeb Bush in Florida and Bob Taft in Ohio to illegally funnel foreign and other questionable money into Republican coffers.

Ever since the brutal death of Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) investigator Ray Lemme in July 2003, the focus of investigators in Florida and Georgia has been on the political scandal Lemme was uncovering. After his official investigation of contract fraud, money laundering, illegal immigration, and election fraud was shut down on orders of Jeb Bush, Lemme continued to investigate the use of FDOT to launder cash for the Bush Brothers and their allies. Lemme's focus was on the use of the Florida turnpike system to launder cash for the Jeb and George W. Bush campaigns. It was an investigation that would ultimately lead to Lemme's body being discovered in a motel room bath tub in Valdosta, Georgia. A two-state police cover up of Lemme's death, threats directed at Florida and Georgia investigators, and a virtual media blackout indicates that the GOP administrations of Jeb Bush and Georgia's Sonny Perdue wanted the Lemme story to go away -- and fast.

The reason for the cover-up of Lemme's reported "suicide" is simple. Investigators have now discovered that foreign cash, including Chinese, Saudi, and Nigerian money, was laundered via the biggest state-run cash cow in Florida -- the Florida Turnpike system. Because most of the transactions involving Florida's toll roads involve cash and huge amounts of it, it was easy for foreign and other questionable money to be laundered via FDOT.

Maybe my liberal readers can wade thru the whole article and then cross-reference it to something Michael Moore SWEARS happened just like he recreates it, but for the rest of us, here's the simple sniff test...

If lunatic right-wingers are nuts to suppose such things, why should anti-Dubya people be taken any more seriously?

Put that in your "Bush Lied, People Died" bong and smoke it!
