    Gov. Bush says prosecutor will investigate accusation of delayed
    911 call for Schaivo

    By The Associated Press
    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) -- Gov. Jeb Bush said Friday that a
    prosecutor has agreed to investigate why Terri Schiavo collapsed 15
    years ago, citing an alleged gap in time from when her husband
    found her and called 911.
    In a letter faxed to Pinellas-Pasco County State Attorney Bernie
    McCabe, Bush said Michael Schiavo testified in a 1992 medical
    malpractice trial that he found his wife collapsed at 5 a.m. on
    Feb. 25, 1990, and he said in a 2003 television interview that he
    found her about 4:30 a.m. He called 911 at 5:40 a.m.
    "Between 40 and 70 minutes elapsed before the call was made,
    and I am aware of no explanation for the delay," Bush wrote. "In
    light of this new information, I urge you to take a fresh look at
    this case without any preconceptions as to the outcome."
    McCabe was out of state Friday and couldn't immediately be
    reached for comment, but Bush said McCabe has agreed to his
    Michael Schiavo's attorney, George Felos, did not immediately
    return a telephone call seeking comment from The Associated Press.
    But on Wednesday he said his client didn't wait to call for help.
    He said his client has conceded that he confuses dates and times.
    Felos has said that if Michael Schiavo had not called 911
    immediately, as Bush and others allege, Terri Schiavo would have
    died that day.
    "There is no hour gap or other gap to the point Michael heard
    Terri fall and called 911," Felos said. "We've seen the baseless
    allegations in this case fall by the wayside one by one ... That's
    what I would call it, a baseless claim to perpetuate a controversy
    that in fact doesn't exist."
    Terri Schiavo died March 31 from dehydration after her feeding
    tube was disconnected at her husband's request, despite
    unsuccessful efforts by her parents, Bush and others to keep her
    An autopsy released Wednesday concluded that she had been in a
    persistent vegetative state and revealed no evidence that she was
    strangled or otherwise abused before she collapsed.
    It left unanswered the question of why Terri Schiavo's heart
    stopped, cutting oxygen off from her brain. The autopsy showed she
    suffered irreversible brain damage and her brain had shrunk to half
    the normal size for her age.
    Bush's request was immediately criticized by some lawmakers.
    "Enough is enough," said Democratic Sen. Ron Klein. "I don't
    want to see it on TV any more, I don't want to hear politicians
    talk about it. Let her be at peace."
    Bush acknowledged in his letter that an investigation may be
    "I understand that these events took place many years ago, and
    that you may not be able to collect all the relevant records and
    physical evidence. However, Mrs. Schiavo's family deserves to know
    anything that can be done to determine the cause and circumstances
    of her collapse 15 years ago," Bush wrote. "The unanswered
    questions may be unanswerable, but the attempt should be made."

    So, Jeb is doing this entirely for publicity?

    The Michael Jackson story is over and support for his pig of a brother's wars is waning. That's why he's doing this.

    That's what it looks like to me, too. The whole idea is absurd...and wayyyy too late!
