George W. Bush's e-mail accounts have been compromised by the hacker known as Guccifer, who exposed the Bush family's personal photos as well as paintings by the former president. On top of the personal photos, the hacker also obtained cell phone numbers, personal e-mails, security codes and information in regards to George H.W. Bush's health. The hacker, Guccifer, is currently at the center of a criminal investigation in order to find out his true identity.

Reports say that at least 6 accounts have been hacked, including Barbara Bush's brother, family friend Willard Hemingway, and another family friend, CBS sportscaster Jim Nantz. Certain e-mails with information about George H.W.'s recent hospital stay were obtained and released. Specifically, an e-mail from Jeb Bush addressed a meeting with former President Bill Clinton and H.W.'s health, saying how kind the two were to each other. He also stated:
"[H]e helped restore his sordid reputation. A very tough thing to do but with kindness, dad probably helped Bill Clinton than anything he himself has done. Might be tough to say it that way in a eulogy with President 42 there."
There was another e-mail from December 26, 2012, from George W. to his siblings addressing the inevitable eulogy as well. So clearly the H.W. is not doing well.
Now, of course the above information that was revealed is very important and personal (especially the health issues of the former president) but the real story comes from George W.'s attempts at painting. In last week's article about the passing of former first dog, Barney, a tweet from Jenna Bush introduced many of us to her father's artistic side (touching painting here). Now with even more paintings emerging from Guccifer's hacking, the world can see just how passionate the former Commander in Chief is about his art. As seen in the slideshow of pictures we have provided, George likes to focus on self-portraits. Specifically ones involving the former president bathing. I am not going to sit here and criticize the former leader of the free world's attempt at painting like most other sites will be doing, because I too am an amateur painter. Bush has a real eye for color and nice brushwork. The way he captures himself in the shower mirror is quite inspiring. His other painting, which I have decided to name "Bath Feet," allows the viewer to see the softer (maybe even sexier) side of George W. Bush. And the painting in progress of an impressive estate just gets me excited for another hack.
In all seriousness this Guccifer guy is really testing the waters with this hack and leak of personal e-mails. And the waters he happens to be testing are filled with secret service agents. Good uck, Guccifer!
