Young son-of-a-Jeb, George Pee Bush, got himself elected Land Commissioner in Texas. There have been problems from the get-go, like hiring his buddies to high paying jobs within his office.
The big news in Texas right now is that George P Bush, son of a JebBush, got elected Land Commissioner in Texas and is violating the law, hiring his friends and family, not posting jobs, and has turned the Texas General Land office to a frat house / political payoff machine that even has his retired Republican predecessor aghast.
That has been the good news of his tenure in office.
He’s been spending more time on the campaign trail with his daddy than running his office in Texas.
Come to think of it, maybe that’s good news.
George Pee had a conference call with his closest supporters and even they were dumbfounded when he explained that he had run for “dogcatcher” in Texas
“There’s no better experience than getting involved in a presidential race because you truly do absorb so much more information than say, running for dog catcher like I did in Texas,” he said, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Brian Rosenthal.
But he didn’t stop there. When asked if he was going to help with the presidential campaign, he explained —
When he began to talk about where his father and brother would be campaigning, he said he was “stuck here in Texas this week, but will be out on the trail.”
So, here we have a young man with a $167,070 a year job that oversees the Texas School Fund and all the damn land in Texas. Land commissioner is the oldest, continuous elected position in Texas history. But, George Pee considers that dogcatcher.
I wonder if he knows he’s not “stuck in Texas.” He can leave at any time. In my mind, the sooner, the better.
