Bush's brother has 400,000-dollar contract with Chinese firm
http://servihoo.com/channels/kinews/v3news_details.php?...

Neil Bush, a younger brother of US President George W. Bush, has a 400,000-dollar-a-year consulting contract with a Chinese computer chip manufacturing firm, The Los Angeles Times reported on its web site.

Citing court documents filed in the course of Neil Bush's divorce proceedings in Houston, Texas, the newspaper said the president's brother had agreed to strategize with China's Grace Semiconductor Manufacturing Corp at the same time the Bush administration is trying to help US firms compete more effectively against the Chinese. snip

However, the arrangement could attract attention during a presidential election cycle in which Chinese business practices have become a hot button issue, The Times said.

"There's certainly the appearance of influence being sought," the paper quotes Charles McMillion, a Washington business consultant who advised a congressional commission on US-China policy as saying. "If nothing else, it doesn't look good."

7. Bush brother tells of sex adventures and tangled deals
Telegraph article. I'm all up for giving this story some :kick:

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/main.jhtml?xml=/news/20...

In a deposition that could prove embarrassing to the White House, Mr Bush shed light on the usually closed and frequently lucrative world of deal-making in China.

He also admitted a series of sexual adventures while on trips to Thailand and Hong Kong.
