Former Bush Counsel Charged With Attempted Murder of his Wife

Former Bush counsel charged in Conn. with trying to kill wife after she sought divorce.

"A onetime senior attorney to former President George W. Bush was charged Thursday with trying to kill his wife at their Connecticut home by beating her with a flashlight and choking her."

"Farren was general counsel at Xerox Corp. in 2007 when he was named deputy White House counsel during Bush's second term. He was previously undersecretary for international trade in the Commerce Department under Bush's father, former President George H.W. Bush; deputy manager for the elder Bush's 1992 re-election campaign; and deputy director for his transition team in 1989."

I predict that she will do VERY well in the divorce settlement.

Maybe not. His future earning capacity will be reduced to about 40 cents an hour in prison.
