In the eight years after he left the Florida governor’s mansion, Jeb Bush raked in nearly $30 million. Who paid him and for what? And what “services” did Bush perform for those who gave him millions?
In Bush Bucks: How Public Service and Corporations Helped Make Jeb Rich, Government Accountability Institute (GAI) President and New York Times bestselling author Peter Schweizer and his team of GAI investigators perform a granular examination of former Florida Governor Jeb Bush’s financial dealings and accumulation of wealth. What emerges is a disturbing pattern of cronyism and self-enrichment, one in which the companies and individuals that benefited while Bush was governor in turn helped make Bush millions of dollars shortly after he left the governor’s mansion.
Bush Bucks reveals:
- How more than half of Jeb Bush’s post-gubernatorial income was derived from a handful of companies that benefitted while Bush was governor.
- How Bush provided “political intelligence” to Wall Street investment firms via Lehman Brothers and Barclays that gave them the inside track on pending mergers and acquisitions.
- How Jeb’s educational reforms enriched key companies that then put money in Bush’s foundations and pockets.
Fact-based, quick-moving, and clear, Bush Bucks highlights a troubling constellation of cronyism and self-enrichment inside Bush world.
