From Michael C. Bender writing at Bloomberg Politics:

On the campaign trail, Republican presidential candidate Jeb Bush rails against politicians who cash in after leaving office by leveraging the relationships they built during their time in public office. But a new e-book suggests that Bush’s own record may not be much different.

Peter Schweizer, author of the controversial book Clinton Cash: The Untold Story of How and Why Foreign Governments and Business Helped Make Bill and Hillary Rich, is now taking aim at one of the biggest names in the Republican race. His new publication, Bush Bucks: How Public Service and Corporations Helped Make Jeb Rich, is scheduled for release on Monday.

Bush Bucks is a less ambitious work than Schweizer’s Clinton book, a nearly 200-page hardback that caused weeks of headaches for Hillary Clinton by suggesting that the hope of quid pro quos motivated foreign donations made to the Clinton Foundation while she was the nation’s chief diplomat. The Bush e-book, just 25 pages long, raises questions about the millions the former Florida governor earned after leaving office from companies that benefited from the policy agenda he drove while he was the state’s chief executive.
