Jeb, Give it up. Please.
Jeb Bush, our ever vigilant governor, has found a "new" crime with which to concern himself. After Terri Schiavo's autopsy results were released with no proof that her 1990 collapse was caused by an eating disorder, our caped crusader announced he wants to investigate Michael Schiavo. According to the Tallahassee Democrat, Jeb plans to ask prosecutors to investigate whether her husband took too long to call for help on the night she collapsed in 1990.
Well, the San Francisco Chronicle reports that an investigator has now agreed to look into the matter. Of his request for the probe, Governor I-don't-have-anything-better-to-do had this to say, his request for the probe was not meant to suggest wrongdoing by Michael Schiavo. Hmmm. If you believe that, there's still a lot of Everglades swampland for sale.
Everyone already knows where Bush's sentiments lie. From an article on CNN's site, All innocent human life is precious and government has a duty to protect the weak, disabled and vulnerable," he wrote. "Our thoughts and prayers remain with the Schindler family during this most difficult time." (Guess Michael Schiavo doesn't deserve any "thoughts and prayers.")
Those are the Schindlers who, according to that same article, alleged to Florida's Department of Family and Children Services that Michael Schiavo tried to starve [Terri], beat her, inappropriately medicated her and wanted her dead to gain financially.
Can they drag Michael Schiavo's name through the mud any more than they already have? All together now: yes they can! And this time the Governor of Florida is driving the wagon doing the dragging.
