Chalk this one up as an unfortunate slip-of-tongue.
David Siegel, the Florida real estate mogul behind timeshare company Westgate Resorts, claims that he was "personally responsible" for George W. Bush's 2000 presidential victory. When the subject comes up in a newly released documentary, Siegel declines to elaborate, stating, "it may not necessarily have been legal."
Siegel's comments appear in director Lauren Greenfield's documentary "The Queen of Versailles."
The film follows Siegel and his wife, Jackie, as they set out to construct a giant 90,000-square-foot mansion in Florida modeled after Versailles. The ambitious building project was put on hold following the 2008 financial crisis. Magnolia Pictures, the film's distributor, did not make the video clip of Siegel's comments available to HuffPost.
The film quickly moves on from Siegel's election-related statements, but multiple photos of Siegel and Bush are shown throughout the movie.
so if this claim about illegal help turns out to be true will this mean W is fined, has to vacate all his wins during the 2000-2008 seasons and get his named removed from public buildings?
