George Bush Jr.
TRUST OR HUSTLE: The Bush Record
In 1992, US News and World Report concluded that in one important
respect, “George W. Bush has less in common with his father than
with his younger brother Neil,” having “also benefited from some
questionable but less well-known business associations.”It
noted, in particular, that Bush sold $828,560 worth of Harken
stock [on June 20, 1990] just one week before the company stock
posted unusually poor quarterly earnings and Harken stock plunged
sharply. Shares lost more than 60% of their value over 6 months.
When Bush sold his shares, he was a member of a company committee
studying the effect of Harken’s restructuring, a move to appease
anxious creditors. According to documents on file with the
Securities and Exchange Commission, his position on the Harken
committee gave Bush detailed knowledge of the company’s
deteriorating financial condition. The SEC received word of
Bush’s trade eight months late. Bush has said he filed the notice
but that is was lost.

Sharon Bush, the estranged wife of
President George W. Bush's younger brother Neil,
is planning to write a tell-all book about her two
decades with the Bush family,
The Observer has learned.
Mrs. Bush is in the middle of a divorce battle
with Neil Bush, and the fight has turned nasty on
both sides. The Observer has obtained a deposition
given by Mr. Bush on March 4, in which he described
his marriage as "broken" and "loveless."
In her book, Ms. Bush wants to detail her
disillusionment with the family. According to
her associates, she has grown despondent about
her treatment at the hands of the Bushes.
She said family members have turned their backs
on her ever since last year, when she learned
that her husband wanted to end their marriage
after carrying on an extramarital affair with
one of Barbara Bush's former assistants.
