This series investigated the Tampa-Hillsborough County Expressway Authority, which prompted an investigation by Governor Jeb Bush's office, an investigation by the Florida Legislature's Auditor General and an ongoing investigation by the FBI.
Florida bans more ex-felons from recovering their civil rights, including the right to vote, than any other state. Almost half a million people are caught up in the state's error-ridden system to restore civil rights. Since Jeb Bush took office, the system has slowed to a crawl; it could take decades to clear the backlog of cases. In Bush's six years as governor more than 200,000 applicants, many of them non-violent ex-felons, have been blocked from voting again. The issue took on particular significance in the 2000 presidential election when George W. Bush won the state of Florida by only 537 votes. Included are two follow-ups that cover prominent Florida Republicans taking the lead in asking Governor Bush to automatically grant clemency to ex-felons.
The investigation found that people who contributed to Gov. Jeb Bush's campaign and major donors to the Republican Party of Florida were far more likely to get plum appointments to the state's powerful boards and commissions during the Bush tenure than those who contributed t the Florida Democratic Party of Bush's opponents.

The Post investigated statewide political candidates' use of a state campaign finance loophole, which allows for the use of expensive, corporate airplanes while paying only a small fraction of the actual operating costs. Findings revealed that the biggest user of this loophole was Florida Governor Jeb Bush.
The Royal Palm Yacht and Country Club of Boca Raton, Fla., faces allegations of anti-Semitism by the community and even Florida governor Jeb Bush. One and only one Jewish member was admitted four years ago after his Christian father-in-law wrote a scathing letter warning of consequences that might be brought by not admitting his son-in-law and daughter. Some members say attitudes at the elite club are gradually changing, while others allege there has never been any discrimination. The current commodore says the business of the private club is nobody's concern, but because the club has more than 400 members, it is subject to Florida state law.
