Fischer-Crowley Story Update: From March

April 30th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Back in March Greg Fischer’s campaign manager, A.J. Carrillo, lied to us/misled us about the departure of media consultant John Lapp. We reported, rightly so, that Pat Crowley had employed sloppy journalism in his story about the departure: Dem U.S. Senate candidate Greg Fischer has been dumped by his Washington-based consultants, McMahon Squire Lapp and [...]

More Evidence of Fischer Disconnection?

April 30th, 2008 · 7 Comments

How hilarious is this? Greg Fischer’s ‘Contact Us‘ page lists his campaign as “Greg Fischer for Congress.” We’re over five months into this U.S. Senate race. Fischer’s website has been live for months and months. And it still says “for Congress.” We took a screengrab for safe keeping. Spell it out: A-m-a-t-e-u-r.

Ruh Ro: Drama in Cassaroland?

April 30th, 2008 · 9 Comments

Sure, Cassaro’s campaign doesn’t matter, but there’s drama! We hear from several former campaign staffers of Michael Cassaro that he is refusing to pay them. (Who knew four staff members had departed?) Three of the former staffers allege physical and verbal harassment (not sexual, just unwanted touching) from the campaign’s Communications Director. The staffers attempted [...]

Sources: Fischer Campaign Falling Apart

April 30th, 2008 · 4 Comments

This is the straw that’s breaking the camel’s back in the ongoing saga of A.J. Carrillo Sinks the Fischer Ship. Greg Fischer’s Communications Director (we aren’t naming her because the story isn’t really about her) is resigning. She’ll begin working for the Clinton campaign this Saturday. We hear from several little birdies on the Fischer [...]

It’s Wednesday. Political Fur is Flying Edition.

April 30th, 2008 · 4 Comments

Bruce Lunsford tells the truth about Greg Fischer’s big name supporters. Finally. It’s hilariously true. Christie & Owsley will probably try to raise a million or two for McConnell to get political revenge. “It kind of centers around four or five families and a few progressives, and the rest of the state, especially outside of [...]

RPK Complains About Lunsford TV Appearance

April 29th, 2008 · 7 Comments

Did you hear? The Republican Party of Kentucky filed an FEC complaint against Bruce Lunsford for paying to appear on the CW’s morning show. The appearance, the RPK alleges, is a paid commercial for Bruce that didn’t contain the proper disclaimers. See the full text of the RPK’s press release after the jump. What’s funny, [...]

Ouch: Paducah Sun Slams Greg Fischer

April 29th, 2008 · 5 Comments

Beyond the meager 18% name I.D. Greg Fischer’s $500,000 has bought him, not everything in the press is positive these days. A Paducah Sun editorial literally takes Fischer to the woodshed and indicates just how far from ready-for-office Fischer he is. While the Sun may not be a favorite publication of Democrats, there’s no denying [...]
