Faux Rights Group Slanders David Williams

March 31st, 2008 · 2 Comments

As Ben reports, the faux rights organization Kentucky Equality Federation has killed the last remaining ounce of credibility it allegedly had. The organization is no longer making up names of board members and claiming a legal counsel who isn’t a member of the Kentucky Bar Association (because she allegedly doesn’t exist). Nor are they attempting [...]

Fischer Passively Attacks Lunsford. Again.

March 31st, 2008 · 3 Comments

Being passive, as you well know, gets you no where in politics. But that’s Greg Fischer’s campaign tactic. Where has it gotten him? To 5% name I.D. with very little money in the bank.
