A hacker, who goes by the handle of 'Guccifer,' recently broke into several e-mail accounts of the Bush family, including both former U.S. presidents.
According to TheSmokingGun.com, Bush family photos, e-mails and George W. Bush's odd self-portraits were posted online yesterday with the watermark 'Guccifer.'
Included in the hacked content is an October 2012 list of home addresses, cell phone numbers, and e-mails for Bush family members, including both former presidents, siblings and children.
A November 28 e-mail was sent to several family members by Neil Bush, one of George H.W. Bush’s four sons, and included specific details of the 41st president’s illness.
A late December e-mail reveals that George H.W. Bush's chief of staff, Jean Becker, wrote his children to inform them that “your dad’s funeral team is having an emergency meeting at 10 a.m. just to go through all the details.” Becker wrote that this information “fell under the broadening category of things NOT TO TELL YOUR MOTHER.”
In a December 26 e-mail to his siblings, George W. Bush wrote that he was “thinking about eulogy” for his ailing dad.
“Hopefully I’m jumping the gun,” wrote George W. Bush. “But since the feeling is that you all would rather me speak than bubba, please help.” The mention of “bubba” is apparently a reference to Clinton.
In a December 27 e-mail, Jeb Bush mentioned his father’s “kindness and good nature” and pointed to “how kind he was with President Clinton and he helped restore his sordid reputation. A very tough thing to do but with kindness, dad probably helped Bill Clinton than anything he himself has done.”
The hacker also uploaded photos that George W. Bush's odd self-portraits of himself showering and in a bathtub (below).
The hacker told TheSmokingGun.com that “the feds” began investigating him a “long time ago,” and that he has hacked “hundreds of accounts.” When asked about the FBI/Secret Service investigation that has begun, the hacker wrote: “I have an old game with the f*cking bastards inside, this is just another chapter in the game.”
