Another Bush on the pipe

by IMCweb surfer Friday, Sep. 13, 2002 at 6:12 PM

Hey, I wonder what would happen to any of us -- mere plebians -- if we were found w/ a rock of crack cocaine while in detention. Suffice to say we'd be facing a long prison stay. NOT IF YOU"RE A FRIGGIN' BUSH. Can you say Noelle for president in 2024? (Oh yeah, Neil Bush, the pResident's brother (and friend of John Hinkley, and S & L scam artist), just got a divorce. Family values!)

Police: Noelle Bush Found With Drugs
Governor's Daughter in Treatment

By Manuel Roig-Franzia
Washington Post Staff Writer
Wednesday, September 11, 2002; Page

MIAMI, Sept. 10 -- A two-gram
rock of crack cocaine was found
inside the shoe of Florida Gov. Jeb
Bush's 25-year-old daughter by
workers at the central Florida
rehabilitation center where she is
undergoing court-ordered drug
treatment, Orlando police said

Noelle Bush was not arrested
because witnesses would not give
sworn statements, but the incident is
under investigation, according to Orlando police spokesman Orlando Rolon.

Bush entered a drug treatment program in February, one month after she was
charged with a third-degree felony for allegedly trying to buy the anti-anxiety
drug Xanax with a fake prescription at a drive-through pharmacy in
Tallahassee, the state capital.

She was jailed for three days in July for violating the terms of her
court-ordered treatment program after rehabilitation center workers
discovered that she was carrying prescription pills.

Word of the incident spread Tuesday morning during a chaotic primary
election day in Florida, where Gov. Bush was inundated with complaints
about voting machines not working and alleged voting irregularities.

"This is a private matter as it relates to my daughter and myself and my wife,"
Gov. Bush told reporters. "The road to recovery is a rocky one for a lot of
people that have this kind of problem."

A resident at the Center for Drug-Free Living in Orlando, where Noelle Bush
is being treated, called police late Monday evening and told officers that "the
governor's daughter was caught" with drugs, a police report says. In May,
Noelle Bush had requested a transfer to the center, which court officials in
Orange County say has a 75 percent success rate.

When officers arrived at the center, two staff members told them that they had
searched Noelle Bush after several residents complained about her, the report
says. Staff members also told the officers that residents are warned that they
can be searched at any time.

The white rock that staff members found in Noelle Bush's shoe tested positive
for crack cocaine, the report says.

One of the staff members -- Julia Elias -- began writing a statement about the
incident, but tore it up and threw it away after her supervisor -- Wilma
Accison -- called and told her not to speak with the police, the report says.
The officers picked up the torn statement and logged it as evidence.

Later, the program director, Joyce G. Brulon, arrived and told officers that
the center typically handles such incidents in-house, rather than contacting
police, the report states. Brulon's statement was contradicted by one of her
staff members, Sandra J. Williams, who told officers that the center's policy
requires such matters to be referred to the police, the report says.
