The Taint of Scandal

In the twilight of Bush's tenure as governor, Jim Crosby's admission that he accepted kickbacks from a vendor who ran cash prison canteen services adds a stigma of scandal to the administration and is likely to put the former prison boss behind bars. The lingering question is whether Bush had too much faith in Crosby for too long, and it's a question that might arise if Bush ever seeks national office. Story here.

In another reason Jeb Bush might want to spend a little quality time in the private sector after January, his net worth continued to fall last year. He's worth $1.4-million, a 41 percent drop since taking office.
