George Bush and Ken Lay are Close and Personal Friends
BUZZFLASH READER CONTRIBUTION
I strongly encourage your readers, and everyone else, to review the archives at "The Smoking Gun" for a look at the personal and business relationship between President George W. Bush and indicted Enron exec Ken Lay. The memos go on and on.
The GOP will spin Lay's indictment as proof the Bush White House will not protect corporate criminals, but the Enron tapes and public disgust with Lay's company make it impossible not to do something before the election.
The larger story, the story that will be ignored, is the link between Bush and Lay. If President Clinton had built such a relationship with someone in Lay's position, the corporate media would have howled in outrage. But their idea of news was a $60 million Republican peep show starring the First Penis. When their own guy gets into bed with a company that jokes about ripping off "those poor grandmothers in California" it's not news.
