We told you that Hillary Clinton’s decision to involve Steve and Heather French Henry in her campaign for the U.S. Presidency was a bad idea.
That was two days ago.
Well, whattya know? It only took two days for the screw-up to take place.
Here’s the backstory: Steve Henry purchased a building (allegedly with funds from his 1998 Senate campaign fund which he paid Jake and others out of to do gubernatorial campaign work) at 1357 Bardstown Road in Louisville in 2006 and placed it in the name of his longtime friend Steve O. Thornton, a Bowling Green attorney. Shortly thereafter Henry filed to run for governor with Renee True as his lieutenant. After failing miserably on the campaign trail, Henry’s building sat quiet and filled with junk for a few months. Until recently, that is, when the building popped up on the Jefferson County PVA’s website in the name of “FUTURE FUND ENDOWMENT INC THE,” one of Henry’s non-profit foundations. Which is interesting in and of itself if you’re familiar with the entire Henry story of the past few years.
