First the spelling bee champion was tagged with sending a spelling error-ridden dispatch to the nation's leaders. Later the student of history was fooled by a fake Shakespeare internet hoax, but not before delivering a performance before thousands.
The stormy week in Malibu ends with a look at the financials...
Dissing Diva Barbra Streisand may be warning the nation about Vice President Dick Cheney and the evils of Republican big business interests, but a DRUDGE REPORT investigation can reveal:
Streisand bought and traded 800 shares of HALLIBURTON -- while Dick Cheney was its chief executive!
IRS tax returns show Streisand invested tens of thousands of dollars in Dick Cheney's HALLIBURTON.
Records show the HALLIBURTON stocks were purchased on April 21, 1999, while Cheney was the chief executive officer of the giant, one of the world's largest providers of products and services to the petroleum and energy industries.
The shares were sold eight months later for nearly $35,000, according the Schedule A form filed for the Barbra Streisand Foundation.
In her confidential memo to Capitol Hill last week, Streisand warned Democrats not to ignore "the obvious influence on the Bush Administration of such special interests as the oil industry, the chemical companies, the logging industry, the defense contractors" and others.
"Many of these industries, run by big Republican donors and insiders, clearly have much to gain if we go to war against Iraq," Streisand noted.
Streisand could not be reached for comment on the HALLIBURTON stock play.
