RPK Attacks Robin Webb on the Radio

The Republican Party of Kentucky has launched its latest radio attacks. And Robin Webb, who is running against Republican Jack Ditty in the August 25th special election for the State Senate’s 18th district, is taking the heat.

The disparaging and exaggerative ads are mind blowing. Take a listen. If you’re faint of heart or fear you could end up as constipated Larry Clark, don’t listen. But if you love dirty politics and the flustercuck we’re about to see in the mountains, CLICK PLAY ASAP!

Here’s an ad that reveals Robin Webb hates babies and women so much that she begged for a rapist/murderer to receive a commuted sentence:

Here are some facts about the case in which Kevin Stanford was convicted for the rape and murder of Baerbel Poore. And here (Warning: PDF Link) is a July 2002 newsletter from the Kentucky Coalition to Abolish the Death Penalty about the case. KCADP tried to use the case to repeal the death penalty in Kentucky. Still more info.

Now here’s the fancy ad that detailing Webb’s Socialist and Nazi ways. She hates Jesus and jobs. And she has the audacity to think people shouldn’t be discriminated against on the basis of their gender, ethnicity or disability. She clearly supports euthanizing old people. Listen:

Talk about some messed up shiz. This could sink Webb’s ship. She’s got several votes that can be used to paint her as anti-victim. If anyone has researched her commentary on the Judiciary Committee, her race will become a lost cause for the Democrats.Here’s hoping she’s as well-loved as everyone proclaims.

How will the Kentucky Democratic Party respond?

In LEO This Week…

There’s too much in LEO this week to focus on one issue.

Who Killed Timmy Jo? Phillip Bailey writes what breaks our heart.

The flamboyant ensemble would be the same outfit the teenager — fondly called “Timmy Jo” by friends and family — was found dead in hours later. Acquaintances tell LEO Weekly they saw Timothy in passing the night he was murdered; however, no definitive timeline has been established.

The sparse incident report, signed by Louisville Metro Police homicide detective Gary Huffman, indicates a witness called dispatchers around 6:45 a.m. on Sunday, May 22, 2005, to report a person lying at the corner of 28th and Magazine streets. Police responded, found Timothy with multiple gunshot wounds and pronounced him dead at the scene.

The murder of a black man dressed in drag prompted friends and family to believe, at least initially, that a hate crime might have been committed. But Timothy’s murder has since garnered few headlines and little interest from the community.

Is Marco Allen Chapman Ready To Die?

Time is running out for Marco Allen Chapman, who is scheduled to die by lethal injection Friday at the Kentucky State Penitentiary in Eddyville. If the execution is carried out as expected, the 36-year-old will become the first Kentucky inmate put to death in nearly a decade.

It’s an outcome Chapman has welcomed since his arrest for murdering two children and wounding their sister and mother during a violent rampage in Gallatin County in 2002. After confessing to the crime, the killer fired his public defenders, waived a jury trial and pleaded with the court to impose a death sentence.

Art experts are pushing to restore one of our favorite things about Louisville – “The Thinker” – and we couldn’t be more pleased that it’s finally getting some attention.

For decades, the University of Louisville has been home to a masterpiece you’re probably familiar with — “The Thinker.” But chances are you are completely unaware of the remarkable history behind this hidden jewel, which the university has long failed to promote, meanwhile letting the iconic statue fall into disrepair.

French sculptor Auguste Rodin created the “The Thinker,” which depicts a man deep in thought. It’s his most famous work, and it turns out U of L is home to the first full-size bronze cast of the piece, with other casts of the statue in such prominent locations as the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo, the Sydney Opera House and Stanford University in California.

But again, ours is the first, a fascinating morsel of knowledge the university has inexplicably neglected to publicize — until now.

Cop Killer Put to Death

Ralph Baze, Jr.According to a release from Governor Fletcher’s office, a death warrant for Ralph Baze, Jr. will be signed tomorrow. Attorney General Greg Stumbo requested an execution date of September 18 exactly a week ago.

Baze was convicted of the 1992 murders of Powell County Sheriff Steve Bennett and Dep. Arthur Briscoe.

Excerpt from the release:

These decisions are among the most important any Governor makes. Governor Fletcher undertakes this duty with the utmost care and attention. Justice demands a judicial process that affords the accused a fair and impartial hearing. Baze received that. Justice likewise requires imposition of the penalty commensurate with the offense. Here, a jury found that Baze planned and murdered a sheriff and a sheriff’s deputy. Imposition of the death penalty is therefore appropriate.

Interestingly, there’s a federal civil suit pending naming Ernie Fletcher as a defendant. The suit challenges the constitutionality of Kentucky’s lethal injection protocol.

We doubt politics (on either side) played a role in a matter this serious. But. We find ourselves wondering if there are political consequences for Fletcher or Stumbo. What do you think?
