The bus leaves for Forbes
"Back home to Jersey, Jeeves," Forbes tells his bus driver, "we're done here."
WASHINGTON (Streetplay feed, 2/10/2000) - Publisher Steve Forbes declared today that his bid for the White House is over. He cited the recent bribery scandal in the opening event of the Streetplay Pentathlon as the reason for his third-place finish in the Delaware primary.

"You haven't heard the last of me," Forbes stately deliberately, a slight tremor in his voice. "I intend to stay involved in the Pentathlon in an essential way. I will participate in the public square one way or the other." He didn't elaborate further, but knowledgeable sources have hinted that Forbes intends to build a "urban games training facility" for John McCain, staffing it with athletes and trainers from professional sports teams.

"For the record, I never bribed anyone. I'm the victim of my own generous heart," Forbes added. "However, once the media latch onto something, they just won't let go. The characterization of me as a grown-up little boy who uses his riches to achieve any goal... it hurts me deep inside." He then broke down in tears, repeating the phrase "it's not fair, it's not fair."

Forbes managed to get only 143 votes in the Delaware primary on Tuesday, which he had won in his unsuccessful 1996 campaign for the presidency. This campaign was Forbes' second unsuccessful bid for the presidency after the failed 1996 effort. His net worth has been estimated at about $500 million and he spent more than $65 million of his own money on the two campaigns. He allegedly gave Rudolph Giuliani $100 to change the outcome of the Pentathlon marbles competition.
