Claims to fame: Crooked businessman who figured heavily in 1980s U.S. savings & loan collapse; son of the 41st President of the United States; younger brother of George W. Bush; adulterer; homewrecker
Moral apex: Dumped wife Sharon (after 23 years & three kids) for married mistress Maria Andrews. Broke up Andrews marriage. May or may not have fathered Andrews’ two-year-old son. Admitted to multiple “sex romps” all over in Asia with presumed prostitutes — but swears he’s never paid for sex; women just showed up and had sex with him. Lucky guy, eh?
Icing on the cake: Asked Sharon for divorce by e-mail.
Schadenfreude moment: Messy divorce case splashed all over the press.
Marshall Davis Brown, attorney for Sharon Bush: “Mr. Bush, you have to admit it’s a pretty remarkable thing for a man just to go to a hotel room door and open it and have a woman standing there and have sex with her.”
Bush: “It was very unusual.”
Suggested Bible reading for Mr. Bush:
And shall receive the reward of unrighteousness, as they that count it pleasure to riot in the day time. Spots they are and blemishes, sporting themselves with their own deceivings while they feast with you; Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
