Lehman hires Jeb Bush as private equity advisor

 NEW YORK, Aug 30 (Reuters) - Lehman Brothers has hired Jeb Bush, brother of the President of the United States, as an advisor to its private equity business, a source familiar with the situation said.

Lehman hired another relative of U.S. President George W. Bush last year--George Walker, a second cousin, who heads up the bank's asset management business.

Jeb Bush is the former governor of Florida.

Lehman Brothers declined to comment.

Jeb Bush: Lehman’s Secret Weapon

 :D

I'm guessing Lehman's handled a lot of Florida's CAFR money and Bush was getting in for his cut before the collapse.

So everytime one of these fail, the bushes and their friends make off with a ton of our money. The money doesn't dissapper. Someone has it and it is consolidated into a few pockets. Niel was in the silverado s&l fiasco in colorado in the 80s. So, this is not his first rodeo. He is the families money maker. Still, he is a free man. He should be in prison as should the rest of the loosers who steel from the common man.

Guess the rich are getting the middle class back for getting a piece of their pie for a while.
