I had an invite several years back to a party to welcome Mr. Jeb Bush to Miami. Mr. Bush moved to south Florida to be in charge of the Republican party. Having a father whom was president didn't hurt.

Kudos to WTHR (Channel 13) in Indianapolis, Ind., and Bob Segall (Eyewitness News) for revealing yet again our government’s failure to protect American interests, this time from blatant and injurious fraud perpetrated with the awareness of one of America's most vital and vulnerable institutions, the IRS.
