An­other Bugliosi achieve­ment

Los Angeles Times - - OPINION -

Re “Pros­e­cu­tor in Manson mur­ders,” Obit­u­ary, June 10

In the obit­u­ary on Vin­cent Bugliosi, The Times ne­glects to men­tion his re­mark­able book, “The Be­trayal of Amer­ica,” a riv­et­ing ac­count of how Ge­orge W. Bush stole the 2000 pres­i­den­tial elec­tion.

In the type of painstak­ing de­tail for which he was fa­mous as a writer, Bugliosi ex­plains how then-Gov. Jeb Bush (and his sec­re­tary of state) con­spired to de­liver Florida to his brother, and how the un­ex­pected and un­prece­dented in­ter­fer­ence of the U.S. Supreme Court in stop­ping the vote count handed the elec­tion to Ge­orge Bush.

Bugliosi’s cu­rios­ity, at­ten­tion to de­tail and pas­sion for the truth were hall­marks of his work.
