New Bush Campaign Manager?

Back in action and fit from all that weight training in his last postion, it looks like this guy is ready to take over the Bush campaign:
David Duke out of prison, at halfway house

BATON ROUGE (AP) — Former Ku Klux Klan leader David Duke left a federal prison in Texas and is staying at a halfway house in Baton Rouge, his spokesman said.

He was released from prison in Big Spring, Texas, on Thursday and took a Greyhound bus to a Baton Rouge halfway house, Duke spokesman Roy Armstrong said.
Armstrong said Duke will get a job in the next week. Duke is due for release from the halfway house on May 15, he said.

Duke, a former state representative, turned himself in at Big Spring in April 2003 after he was sentenced to 15 months in prison and fined $10,000 for bilking his supporters and cheating on his taxes. After completing his sentence, Duke was scheduled to have two years of supervised release.

In a plea bargain, Duke pleaded guilty to falsely reporting a gross income of $18,831 in 1998, rather than the actual $65,034, and to bilking supporters.

The mail fraud charge stemmed from what prosecutors described as a six-year scheme between 1993 and 1999 to swindle thousands of followers out of hundreds of thousands of dollars through a direct mail campaign.
No comment needed. Running for the dental floss now.
