Yesterday Governor Steve Beshear’s office sent out a press advisory announcing, well, just look:
Governor Beshear to speak at University of Kentucky Topping Out Celebration
WHO: Gov. Steve Beshear
Lt. Gov. Daniel Mongiardo
Lexington Mayor Jim Newberry
Lee T. Todd Jr., president, University of Kentucky
WHAT: UK Albert B. Chandler Hospital Topping Out Celebration
WHEN: Wednesday, Sept. 30, 2009 at 10:30 a.m. Eastern time
WHERE: Near Wethington Building
Tent overlooking construction
But today’s press conference came and Daniel Mongiardo didn’t show up. The Governor told those in attendance that he was supposed to be there, that he had no idea why he didn’t come.
Mongiardo’s camp first said he didn’t know about it. Then said there was a conflict because he’s at a fundraiser in Chicago. And now other excuses are being bandied about.
Is it possible Mongiardo didn’t show up today because of what went down on Monday? Possibly because of the latest clip of Mongiardo referring to Beshear as an “SOB” ? Maybe because Mongiardo – in the same clip – admits that Beshear did, indeed, take e-health away from him?
Oh, to be a fly on the wall.
