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.

Secret Service Agents Spotted in Nantucket

Rahm Emanuel

The presence of U.S. Secret Service agents, particularly outside of Washington, often creates a buzz and plenty speculation.

Over the weekend, the Boston Globe reports, agents  were spotted  in Nantucket outside the American Seasons restaurant, which  promotes itself as offering “some of the island’s most creative food, along with a one-of-a-kind boutique wine  list”.

The reason? White House chief of staff Rahm Emanuel was dining there.

A great place to vacation. And not a bad place for Secret Service agents to be working, if you have to be working.
