The gift of George W. Bush keeps on giving;
The day before it was to take place, the ball was canceled with no explanation, although some tickets had been sold. The $50,000 check Hayes gave the St. Regis for a security deposit bounced, a hotel official said. The hotel and volunteers said they repeatedly tried to reach Hayes by phone and e-mail but never got a response.

The veterans ball is the only one of 10 official and 45 unofficial inaugural balls under investigation. The U.S. attorney's office, Secret Service and D.C. attorney general's office are looking into whether Hayes committed financial fraud, officials at the agencies said.

Hayes is a longtime Republican who ran an inaugural ball for George W. Bush in 2001. This year, he advertised his veterans ball on area radio stations and on the website of the Congressional Education Foundation for Public Policy, which he runs.
I wonder if Bush holdovers in the federal government and elsewhere will continue to cause issues like this going forward, or if Obama's presidency will somehow disinfect the corruption from the former Child King. Only time will tell, but while we're waiting let's nail every criminal we can, especially creeps like this guy.
