This one inside the New York Times:

WASHINGTON, Nov. 6 — The inspector general of the Department of Education has said he will examine whether federal money was inappropriately used by three states to buy educational products from a company owned by Neil Bush, the president’s brother.

If the company sounds familiar, it may be because of a controversy that erupted in the wake of Hurricane Katrina, when Neil’s mom donated funds to the Bush-Clinton Katrina Fund, but stipulated that they had to be spent buying her son’s firm’s educational software for the Houston public schools.

Charity begins at home.
