Press Release

	Americans expect to be protected from fraudulent business practices and deceptive marketing by federal law.  For example, investors and employees cheered when Enron executives were convicted of conspiracy to defraud in it financial claims.  Could the same indictment be made of the Bush administration's public claims that led the American people to accept the war in Iraq?  Elizabeth de la Vega—a former federal prosecutor with 21 years experience in handling criminal fraud cases—thinks yes.  In her new book, U.S. v. Bush, a Fraud Worse than Enron, she details her legal reasoning.  Written as an actual presentation to a federal Grand Jury, her legal arguments seeks an indictment of the Bush administration on one charge: "Conspiracy to Defraud the U.S. in violation of Title 18, U.S. Code, Section 371."  

Elizabeth de la Vega will discuss her book at Cambridge Forum on Wednesday, May 9.  The program begins at 7:30 p.m. at First Parish, 3 Church Street, Harvard Square, in Cambridge. 

	Jay Wexler, Associate Professor of Law at Boston University School of Law, will moderate.  He teaches law and religion, administrative law, and environmental law.  He also spent two years at the Office of Legal Counsel in the Department of Justice advising members of the executive branch on statutory and constitutional issues.
