Bush Family Emails Hacked

A hacker using the handle Guccifer has hacked George W. and George H.W. Bush’s emails. According to The Smoking Gun:

Included in the hacked material is a confidential October 2012 list of home addresses, cell phone numbers, and e-mails for dozens of Bush family members, including both former presidents, their siblings, and their children. The posted photos and e-mails contain a watermark with the hacker’s online alias, “Guccifer.”

Correspondence obtained by the hacker indicates that at least six separate e-mail accounts have been compromised, including the AOL account of Dorothy Bush Koch, daughter of George H.W. Bush and sister of George W. Bush. Other breached accounts belong to Willard Heminway, 79, an old friend of the 41st president who lives in Greenwich, Connecticut; CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz, a longtime Bush family friend; former first lady Barbara Bush’s brother; and George H.W. Bush’s sister-in-law.

To which I say: AOL account? And also: one of the hacked emails contained a picture of a self-portrait that George W. made of himself in the bathtub? It’s too much for me to wrap my head around.

    So two of Bush’s paintings are portraits of him in the shower/bath, and another picture shows that the former president paints in a room that doubles as a gym. I think Freud/Will Ferrell could have a heyday with those two facts alone. Or is Bush taking the Bob Dylan lyric to heart: “But even the president of the United States: Sometimes must have to stand naked.”
