Vanity Fair: Bush Had Ties to Abramoff
Posted on Mar 8, 2006
WASHINGTON - Convicted lobbyist Jack Abramoff says President Bush knew him well enough to joke with him about weightlifting. “What are you benching, buff guy?” Abramoff said Bush asked him. The president has said he doesn’t know Abramoff.
Abramoff said he finds it hard to believe Bush doesn’t remember the 10 or so photos he and members of his family had snapped with the president and first lady.
