At the recent CNN debate, former Gov. Jeb Bush admitted he smoked pot when he was in school. But a former GOP representative recently came out with an explosive claim that Bush was also a drug dealer.
John LeBoutillier, a former U.S. Congressman from New York and a co-host of Fox News Channel’s “Political Insiders,” said he heard about it in 2006 at his 30th Harvard reunion. He wrote:
take our poll - story continues below
In 2006 at my 30th Harvard Reunion, during a casual conversation one evening, a classmate told me about his years at Andover. Out of the blue he told me this story:
Jeb Bush and one other fellow student back then ran an illegal drug and liquor distributorship on the Andover campus. When the heat started coming down, Bush ratted out the partner to the school authorities and saved his own skin. Jeb got away with it, was never caught, never punished, graduated unscathed and went on to the University of Texas at Austin.
To this day no one outside the Andover community even knows about this illegal activity. The media is apparently unaware of it. Through three statewide campaigns for governor of Florida, it never came up.
LeBoutillier said a second alumnus confirmed the story in 2012 and reportedly told him: “I never knew why Jeb walked around Andover with his jaw hanging open until someone told me he was stoned all the time.”
Granted, these are only allegations. But they need to be investigated. If Bush does become the GOP nominee, these charges will not only hurt him, but the rest of the ticket as well. And you know the Democrats and their allies in the media won’t let it go.
Even if the allegations turn out to have been hyped somewhat, there’s always the concern over a possible cover-up. Why are we just now hearing about this?
Fortunately, Bush is way down in the polls right now. But anything can happen.
Here’s Bush at the CNN debate admitting he smoked… And unlike Clinton, he really inhaled:
