Surprised? Ethics complaint against Williams dropped. Think it could have something to do with two of those Ethics members being county contacts during the merit scandal? [PolWatchers, BGR] Update: As a reader pointed out, there’s no connection because we’ve confused the Executive Branch Ethics Commission and the Legislative Branch. That may be why there’s no connection being pointed out. Thanks, David.
They’re pissed. Anti-Mitch and Anti-War protesters hit the streets of Berea as McConnell visited the chamber of commerce. A similar demonstration took place in Bowling Green. Interesting to note the event’s organizer has a son who believes Saddam Hussein was funding al Qaeda. Go figure. [Richmond Register, BG Daily News]
