How to Become a Bounty Hunter



The White House, Drug Trafficking and a U.S. Attorney’s Press Release

Fair to say, no one in the Whitehouse including President Obama, Rahm Emanuel or David Axelrod were involved in drug trafficking in Texas — methamphetamine to be exact.

Nonetheless, a press release issued Tuesday by the U.S. Attorney in Texas seemed a bit curious: “Whitehouse, Texas Man Guilty of Drug Trafficking Charges.”

Turns out,  it wasn’t really thee Whitehouse, but rather a man named Jose Zavala, who pleaded guilty to trafficking in methamphetamine and  happened to be from Whitehouse, Texas, a little town in Smith County, Tex., with a population of 7,000-plus.

Sorry Rush Limbaugh. No Obama White House scandal this time.
