Another Shining Example Of Bush's America

Remember Mike and Sharla Hintz? Bush held the Clive, Iowa couple up as shining examples of his most recent tax-cut bill when he stopped in Des Moines to sign the most recent round of slashes. The Prez even made mention that it was the couple's 13th wedding anniversary and that next year when they receive their refund check "they may want to come to Texas."

Not so fast! The Washington Post is reporting that Mike, a First Assembly of God youth pastor, has been arrested this week and charged with sexual exploitation of a child. Apparently, last spring Mr. Hintz began a relationship with a 17 year-old girl who was a member of the church's youth group. The contact occurred at the girl's home and during a mission trip to India.

The Peach would like to know if this is all part of the new and improved child-tax-credit initiative? Oh, and by the way, when Mike comes to visit, Bush may want to hide the twins.
