"In 2000, I got a call from a lawyer in Houston. He told me that his client, 'Susan,' could prove that George W. Bush arranged for his girlfriend to have an abortion back in the early 1970s. Her boyfriend at the time, 'Clyde,' was pals with Bush and set up the procedure. We checked up and found that indeed 'Clyde' was responsible for keeping Bush out of trouble. Bush had knocked up a girl named 'Rayette.' We talked to the doctor that performed the abortion. We felt we really had a blockbuster story, but about two months before we were going to break the story, 'Susan' disappeared. We finally found her. She was living in a half-million-dollar home in Corpus Christi, Texas. Before that she was living in a small apartment working for $13,000 a year as a cocktail waitress. I'm not saying Bush bought her off, but I'm confident that one or more of his cronies did. The only thing that interested me in this story is -- I'm pro-choice, but to have a guy who is running on a pro-life platform [...] and this procedure was committed in 1971, two years before Roe v. Wade, which would have made it a crime."
