|Description||Question: Which southern conservative Republican congressman who voted to authorize war with Iraq recently is a big fan of Vincent Bugliosi's provocative new book, "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder," on tape? |
Hint: The guy from the Carolinas who, during the lead-up to the war in 2003, renamed French fries "freedom fries" in House eateries but who later concluded the president took the country to war under false pretenses and soon began calling for troop withdrawal.
And while Bugliosi himself would neither "confirm nor deny" the mystery congressman is Rep. Walter Jones (R-N.C.), he didn't need to. He described Jones to a tee without ever uttering the congressman's name.
Bugliosi, the lawyer whose biggest claim to fame is prosecuting Charles Manson, tells us a "conservative Southern congressman" called him on June 16 to say he had listened to "The Prosecution of George W. Bush for Murder" on tape and loved it. "He said he bought several copies of the book and told colleagues, 'Here -- read this book. We've been lied to.'"
