A George W. Bush insider, Michael Connell was directly implicated in the 2000 and 2004 rigging of the election in which George W. Bush won. Michael Connell was ready to tell all to the media. And we're talking brutal honesty.
Of course, Michael Connell was afraid that George W. Bush and Dick Cheney would "throw him under a bus" before he could do it, and wouldn't you know it... Michael Connell was killed on December 21, 2008, when his single engine plane crashed three miles short of the Akron airport.
Some might say it's a complete fluke, but wow, what are the chances that the Bush IT expert who planned on telling all suddenly meets his end? Hmm, looks like George W. Bush gots some 'splainin' to do.
