Wow, the information we published about Cordish Cos. in Louisville yesterday has allowed a lot of local business owners to come out of the woodwork. Yet another issue involving Greg Fischer’s pat-a-caking and trying to throw money at a lost cause. [The 'Ville Voice]

Now you know why there was so much drama with the Lexington fire chief. The U.S. Department of Justice is investigating the Lexington fire department’s employment practices, city officials confirmed Monday. Susan Straub, naturally, is being dishonest with her response. The city has been aware of the investigation since its beginning – not just since April. [H-L]

Whattya mean Steve Beshear’s Cabinet for Health and Family Services fired someone because they were gay? Like you didn’t see that coming. Unfortunately, Kerri Richardson lied just like Susan Straub did. Steve Beshear’s entire office – including the governor and his wife – have been keenly aware of this case and the facts involved. Primarily since it’s all his gay staffers have been able to talk about for weeks. [C-J/AKN]

MOAA had its members “storm Capitol Hill” last week to urge legislators to block the Pentagon’s proposed reforms. But close analysis of the proposals from Defense Secretary Leon Panetta and the Joint Chiefs of Staff reveals that their critics’ arguments are baseless. [Politico]

Glencore — founded by famous fugitive Marc Rich — has cornered the market on just about everything. Now that it’s going public, will its ties to dictators and spies stand up to scrutiny? [Foreign Policy]

Yep, here’s yet another death/murder story about Laurel County giving Clay County a run for its money. [WKYT]

Ted Nugent is so mad that Fort Knox canceled his concert because he believes he is an American hero. [Wonkette]

No, Crit Luallen isn’t running for the U.S. Senate in 2014 against Mitch McConnell. She’s – according to her people and those who work for Jack Conway – talking to Jack about running as a gubernatorial ticket, however. Crit doesn’t want to be in Frankfort all the time so running as Jack’s lieutenant would give her more freedom and flexibility. [WFPL]

President Barack Obama’s campaign sought to make the death of Osama bin Laden a central part of the U.S. presidential election on Friday with a video that questioned whether Republican rival Mitt Romney would have made the same call to approve the mission that killed the al Qaeda leader. [Reuters]

Forget the teabaggers when it comes to taking on Mitch McConnell. There’s not even a solid Democrat who can take him on. [Politico]

Have you seen the reaction from Richie Farmer’s attorney? It’s actually sad to examine. What a hot mess that side is. Saying the audit is political and self-serving – ha. [H-L]

Nina Rhodes-Hughes, a key witness to the Robert F. Kennedy assassination at the Ambassador Hotel in 1968, is making bombshell claims in a CNN interview, suggesting that convicted murderer Sirhan Sirhan didn’t act alone. [HuffPo & CNN]

    Interesting comments from David Adams in the McConnell article – “there’s no one even talking about” running against McConnell. “It’s a list right now that is zero,” he said, noting that in the tea party movement in Kentucky, “an excess of anger has led to a resurgence of apathy” as people are feeling that little can be done about the growing debt and deficit. Is Mr. Adams saying that the Kentucky tea party movement is waning? Perhaps he is too busy selling Zija or Mary Kay to throw red meat to the faithful.
