Is Tom Riner Still Spreading His Craziness?

January 14th, 2013 · 4 Comments

You bet your booty he is.

The latest? This mess:

AN ACT creating the Kentucky Retirement Systems unfunded liability trust fund, and making an appropriation therefor.

Create a new section of KRS Chapter 61 to establish the Kentucky Retirement Systems unfunded liability trust fund; require the Finance and Administration Cabinet to separately account for each contribution, gift, or donation by the name and address of the individual or business entity making the contribution, gift, or donation.

Rather than deal with the corruption at the Kentucky Retirement Systems? Riner – who pretends to operate a church in his living room – feels it is best to rely on donations to solve the pension crisis. In other words, he wants to create an additional layer of corruption by allowing big business and dark money to curry even more favor in Frankfort.

    Maybe the placement agents can be asked to donate back some of their $14 million in ill gotten kickbacks to this trust. http://blogs-images.forbes.com/edwardsiedle/files/2012/03/KRS-PDF.pdf

    Touche, Chris Tobe.

    Unfunded Liability Trust Fund, A.K.A., ‘Conservative Charity.’

    Conservative Charity, A.K.A. ‘dark money?’

    Great. Just great.

    Hmmm. . . . .

    When is Riner going to face a legitimate primary challenger?

    Seems like to me that politicians who continue to double dip should be cut off the public teet. When will these people grow up?
