Kurt Busch Claims Ex-Girlfriend Is A Government Assassin
In her day job, Patricia Driscoll serves as president of the Armed Forces Foundation, a Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit organization with a mission of honoring the military population for their service through assistance programs, awareness and advocacy programs. Her ex-boyfriend, NASCAR driver Kurt Busch, is making shocking in-court statements in a domestic matter that she is in real life a government assassin. Bush's testimony came in a Delaware court room where he was hailed after Driscoll filed a domestic assault complaint against him. Driscoll claims Bush smashed her head into an inside wall of his motor home last September at the Dover International Speedway where Busch was competing in a NASCAR race.
Busch testified in a Kent County court room that Driscoll told him she was a mercenary who killed people for a living, including drug lords using sniper fire. "Everybody on the outside can tell me I'm crazy, but I lived on the inside and saw it firsthand," Busch testified in response to a question from his attorney, Rusty Hardin. Busch testified that Driscoll had toll him a female character in "Zero Dark Thirty," a film depicting the CIA's alleged capture and killing of Osama bin Laden, was a composite of her and other women. During a trip to El Paso, Texas, Busch claimed Driscoll left in camouflage gear one day only to later return wearing a trench coat over an evening gown covered with blood.
Busch claimed Driscoll once gave him a behind-the-scenes tour of Fort Bragg. He also testified that Driscoll showed him pictures of bodies with gunshot wounds and that her work as a contract killer took her on missions through Africa and Central and South America. Busch said a long belly scar on Driscoll led him to believe her claims of being a hired assassin were true. A personal assistant to Busch and Driscoll, backed up Busch's claims. Michael Doncheff says the attractive blonde claimed to be a trained assassin for the U.S. government and once told him, "I take down foreign governments. I own Washington."
Driscoll denies Busch's claims. "These statements made about being a trained assassin, hired killer, are ludicrous and without basis and are an attempt to destroy my credibility," Driscoll told The Associated Press. "Not even Rusty Hardin believes this." She claims she drove from her home in Maryland to Dover because Busch had sent her disturbing text messages and she believed he might be suicidal. Busch explained the text messages during his testimony. He claimed he had been crying after watching a movie in which a protagonist had left his wife and son, and which caused him to reflect on his own breakup with Driscoll, whose son had formed a strong bond with Busch, the New York Times reported.
According to tax returns filed by the Armed Forces Foundation, her nonprofit had revenues of close to $10 million in 2012 and paid her a salary close to $200,000 a year to serve as its president. Among the board's officers is one standout individual with military ties-- Retired Major Gen. Randall L. West (USMC), who is president of a D.C. lobbying firm, Robison International Inc., which lobbies on behalf of a number of major defense contractors. West served as Senior Advisor for the Deputy Secretary of Defense for Chemical and Biological Protection prior to his retirement. His military assignments included Vietnam, Desert Storm, as well as advising Congress on defense-related appropriations. Former Texas Gov. Mark White also serves on Driscoll's nonprofit board.
Busch claims he was trying to break off his relationship with Driscoll when the altercation in Dover occurred. When she showed up at his motorhome unannounced and refused to leave, he said he used his hands to cup her cheeks and told her she had to go. He claims her head only lightly tapped the wall when he grabbed her. A Christian music minister, Richard Andrew Sniffen, testified that Driscoll told him that Busch had pushed her and she hit her head. Sniffen described Driscoll as "upset, angry and brokenhearted." Sniffen claimed Driscoll changed weeks later when she appeared to be seeking revenge as opposed to reconciliation. "I will destroy him," Sniffen claims she told him. Driscoll is now seeking a no-contact order against Busch, who has not been charged with a crime.
