Jeb Bush's Porn Problem

It looks like the formidable Jeb Bush campaign is beginning to leak oil. According to International Business Times which plowed through 280,000 emails that were released by the former governor show the stalwart of family values invested Florida's pension fund in porn.
"Have you people lost your minds? If investing in hardcore pornography is justifiable, why not go for further investment in legal prostitution,casinos,etc" wrote one angry voter.
In 2005 the American Family Association got wind that the Florida State Board of Administrations, which manages the state's $149 billion pension fund and on which Bush served as a member, had purchased more than 47,000 shares of Movie Gallery. Movie Gallery is a video rental company that according to one email "shades hundreds of its stores with 'back rooms', filled with thousands of magazines and videos exhibiting morbid depictions of sex."
Morbid depictions of sex! tsk, tsk. Too bad David Carradine isn't alive to see it.
At one point the SBA's director told an angry Floridian that the state could not take investment advice from “various constituency groups.” The board, he explained, had a fiduciary obligation to invest in areas that generated profits regardless of how the taxpayers viewed them.
I have harbored the opinion for sometime that Jeb Bush would be this primary's John Huntsman. Articulate and qualified, but one the voters will not be able to stomach.
We didn't see anything about porn investments and peep shows in Sarah Palin's emails.
