Billing himself as Captain Save-A-House, a home rehabber extraordinaire, Rushing appears to be little more than a master property flipper who preys on the trust of low-income African-Americans. A top-shelf exposé by the St. Petersburg Times in June laid bare myriad inconsistencies in Rushings personal mythology: He claimed to be a three-time Gold Glove boxing champion in Iowa. He wasnt. He claimed to be a reformed low-level drug dealer. He was actually the crack kingpin for the Des Moines Crips gang. Worse than those lies, though, Rushing and his minions recruited via his real estate seminars duped little old ladies into selling their houses for peanuts, and then, when possible, flipped them in a few days for huge profits. Lets hope the Times story put more than a crimp in Captain Save-a-Houses empire.
