    Jeb Bush was preparing to release the emails he sent and received as Florida governor when he was excoriated by a letter-writer to The Miami Herald. The headline: “Don’t trust Jeb Bush with the power of the presidency.” The subject of many of the emails was Terri Schiavo. The letter-writer was her husband, Michael. Bush’s effort to stop Michael Schiavo from removing his brain-damaged wife’s feeding tube was a defining moment of Bush’s time in office. Bush, a devout Catholic, sided with Terri Schiavo’s parents in the end-of-life dispute and reached for unprecedented authority to intervene. Michael Schiavo said his...

    CLEARWATER, Fla.—Sitting recently on his brick back patio here, Michael Schiavo called Jeb Bush a vindictive, untrustworthy coward. For years, the self-described “average Joe” felt harassed, targeted and tormented by the most important person in the state. “It was a living hell,” he said, “and I blame him.” Michael Schiavo was the husband of Terri Schiavo, the brain-dead woman from the Tampa Bay area who ended up at the center of one of the most contentious, drawn-out conflicts in the history of America’s culture wars. The fight over her death lasted almost a decade. It started as a private legal...
  • Republicans have way to protest party's takeover by religious right

    the (relatively silent) majority of Americans feel(s) that the most compassionate treatment for Terri Schiavo - as well as the proper legal course of action - is to let her vegetative existence end, as advocated by her legal guardian, her husband. For Republicans who consider their party a captive of the religious right on matters like medical research and right-to-die legislation and now legislative intrusion into the judicial system, there is a way to at least feel more comfortable with their political consciences. That way is to leave a party whose leadership is currently attempting to leave behind in the...

    As if the topic of Amendment Two, a proposed constitutional amendment to ban gay marriage, was not emotional enough, now the husband of Terri Schiavo has weighed in.Michael Schiavo, in an email to opponents of the amendment, said, ""The same people who thought they knew what was best for my wife Terri, are once again trying to tell others how to live ...As a former Republican, I think if the people behind Amendment 2 really cared about respecting a legal marriage between husband and wife, they would have respected mine."

    Washington, DC (LifeNews.com) -- The web site of Michael Schiavo's political action committee, TerriPAC, is back online after an absence of over a week. However, the Federal Elections Commission, which already fined the PAC $1,350, has written another letter to the organization saying its reports contain inaccurate and incomplete information. As LifeNews.com reported on August 13, the TerriPAC web site was not online and attempts to reach it landed at a leading web domain registration company. The company's page for TerriPAC said the web site was offline pending deletion or transfer. The disappearance appears to be a case of TerriPAC...

    St. Petersburg, FL (LifeNews.com) -- TerriPAC, the political action committee created by Terri Schiavo's former husband, has paid a $1350 fine to the Federal Election Commission in Washington. The fine was assessed after the group failed to file complete and timely reports. Now the political group's web site has been taken offline. After ordering her painful two-week-long starvation and dehydration death in March 2005, Michael Schiavo created the PAC to target pro-life lawmakers who tried to stop him from killing her. Michael created TerriPAC with his brother Brian Schiavo and, since its creation, it has frequently run afoul of the...

    CLEARWATER, FL, July 25, 2007 (LifeSiteNews.com) - A North Country Gazette exclusive alleges, with evidence, that Michael Schiavo, who ordered the starvation of his wife Terry Schiavo in 2005, has a history of hostility towards co-workers, stalking women, vindictiveness and general unprofessional behavior. Last year, the Gazetter reports, Schiavo was involved in a complex tangle of accusations against co-workers at the Pinellas County Jail. The first alleged incident occurred on July 31, when co-worker Diane Cross illegally gave prescription medication, a muscle relaxant called Robaxin, to nursing supervisor David Richardson in order to alleviate his extreme back pain. Schiavo did...

    Coral Gables, FL (LifeNews.com) -- After the euthanasia death of Terri Schiavo, her former husband Michael wanted to exact revenge against the pro-life members of Congress who supported a measure allowing Terri's parents to take their efforts to save her life to federal court. He formed a PAC to get involved in various political campaigns, but it's running afoul of FEC reporting requirements. Schiavo was very involved in the 2006 election season. In Pennsylvania, he attacked pro-life Sen. Rick Santorum -- calling him "the only U.S. senator who flew to Florida and interfered with Terri Schiavo's private family tragedy." He...

    I don't know about anyone else, but I am still waiting for Michael Schiavo to make a correction on his blog about what "actually" took place in Colorado when he went there (to the debate) to supposedly ask Congresswoman Musgrave one question and she and her staff supposedly tried to have him removed. He called it, "My unreal night in Colorado - with radio link" (Thu Oct 26, 2006 at 08:05:14 PM PST). I'll say (from what I read) that it was his "unreal night". As I said before in "Standing up and Admitting a Mistake: Not Schiavo's Style?",  if...

However, the candidates Michael campaigned for during the 2006 mid-term elections didn't fare very well.In fact, every candidate Michael personally campaigned for during the election cycle went down to defeat.Michael traveled to Colorado twice to campaign against pro-life Rep. Marilyn Musgrave, a Colorado congresswoman. He even attended a late October debate between Musgrave and her opponent and shouted at her when the...

    Among the celebrities journeying to Connecticut to support Ned Lamont's campaign to unseat Sen. Joseph Lieberman (now running as an independent, having lost the Democratic primary to Lamont) is Michael Schiavo, known around the world as the husband who finally succeeded in having the feeding tube removed from his late wife, Terri Schiavo. Schiavo pointedly reminded Connecticut voters that Sen. Lieberman has supported the president and Congressional Republicans in passing emergency legislation involving federal courts in an attempt to save Terri Schiavo's life while he, Michael Schiavo, was respecting her wishes — which she could no longer communicate — to...

    THE EYES of the political world will be on us come fall. Pennsylvania is home to the hottest Senate race and three of the most contested House races in the nation. The outcome of the Santorum-Casey, Fitzpatrick-Murphy, Gerlach-Murphy and Weldon-Sestak races could determine control of Congress. The vulnerability of many GOPers is war-related. But there are also important social issues, notably the attempted intervention in the case of Terri Schiavo. Some clues on that might be found in Connecticut, which just had a bruising Democratic primary between Joseph Lieberman and Ned Lamont. Not only did they differ on the war,...

One would have thought that after all the controversy over Schiavo forcing the removal of the feeding tube from his comatose wife, Terri, over the strong objections of her parents who were willing to take care of her, that Michael Schiavo would slither away from public view and take...
