Stapleton is married to Bush’s cousin Dorothy. He is head of Marsh & McLennan’s real estate practice. The company owns Putnam Investments & Marsh Mercer Consulting Group. Stapleton worked in President Bush’s White House and was an investor with Bush in the Texas Rangers ball team, which made Bush a millionaire 15 times over. Bush’s profits got a boost from the other partners, who gifted him extra equity in the deal, and by local taxpayers, who paid $135 million for the team’s new stadium. Stapleton organized a ‘98 Bush fundraiser that netted $250,000.
