Whew! What a day.
Is anyone else sick in the head enough to watch LOST? We’re always excited for Wednesday night. Don’t judge.
Here’s some stuff for you to enjoy.
See the fancy bombshell released in the case of the homophobic anti-Kern Herndon mail piece? Almost mind-blowing. [Page One]
We’ve been poking around campaign finance reports in light of some rumors published earlier today. David Boswell’s KREF reports reveal that he bought a car and financed it. He’s still maintaining the loan and having his campaign fund make payments on it, with just enough cash to come close to paying it completely off. All while making reimbursements for gasoline and mileage. Isn’t this almost abusive and borderline illegal or unethical on the campaign finance front? [More Fancy Rumors]
Will Brad Montell be Gary “Tapp Tapp” Tapp’s replacement in the state senate? Them’s the words on the street in Shelby County, despite Tapp’s endorsement of Paul Hornback. [Fancy Rumors, Club for Growth]
Obama’s crack sentencing laws change is in the works. Kentucky is cited. Who was responsible for the change in Kentucky’s laws? It seems like they should be given props. For Kentucky to be recognized is a big deal. We should be proud. So if anyone remembers who is responsible, drop it in the comments. [Huffington Post]
Read the rest after the jump…
Is this a sign that we’re getting old or what? We don’t recognize half of the “celebrities” on the Barnstable Brown invite list. [C-J]
The Washington Post says that even if Jim Bunning wins a Republican primary, he’ll lose in the general election in 2010. [Washington Post]
Today Governor Steve Beshear announced that Covington would receive $5 million in neighborhood stabilization funds. The Neighborhood Stabilization Program will help combat the area’s high percentage of foreclosed upon and abandoned homes. We’ll see if anything happens in Covington or if similar action gets taken in the blighted areas of Louisville. [Press Release]
Jim Bunning is back to saying he doesn’t support Kathleen Sebelius because she supports a woman’s right to choose. We wish he’d pick a talking point and stick with it. [Associated Press]
Today Congressman John Yarmuth introduced a bill that would end automatic withholding at race tracks. HR 2140, the Parimutuel Conformity and Equality Act, would end the current federal requirement that wagering facilities to immediately withhold taxes of 25% on winnings over $5,000 if the odds on the bet are at least 300-1. Pretty interesting stuff. What was that about Yarmuth being a socialist tax-n-spender? [Press Release]
