Jeb Bush’s Ties To Fugitive Raises Concerns

by Washington Post
March 18, 2015

Jeb Bush was a young man building a real-estate business in Miami in 1985 when a health-care entrepreneur named Miguel Recarey Jr. hired him to help locate office space in South Florida.

Bush, then the son of the vice president, later provided another service: opening doors in Washington, where Recarey had mounted an aggressive lobbying effort for a waiver from Medicare rules that would allow his fast-growing company to continue to expand.

Recarey got what he wanted. But two years later, the firm, International Medical Centers, was shut down as regulators searched for millions in missing federal funds. Facing charges of bribery and bilking Medicare, Recarey fled the country to avoid prosecution. He remains a fugitive in Spain, where a court denied U.S. requests for extradition.

The Recarey case illustrates aspects of Bush’s business record that are likely to resurface as he moves closer to a campaign for president. Time and again, he benefited from his family name and connections to land a consulting deal or board membership, sometimes doing business with people and companies who would later run afoul of the law.

    Wow! Just when you thought he was the real deal, that is to say the GOP establishment did.
    Out of the blue, a sucker punch from moral reality hits, damn I hate that when it happens.
    Will this be his only problem? or will others keep popping out of the woodwork? this could end up with neither he or Benghazi Hillary making the cut?
    Our America needs a leader who not only loves America, and would go to the wall to save it.
    2016 may be our last hope to right the boat of our constitutional freedoms, once again I am sure the GOP will snatch victory from the jaws of defeat.
    God Bless America, we will need his help.
