Michael Cassaro, apparently at turncoat Ted Shlechter’s (he supported Andrew Horne until he couldn’t get paid, then supported Greg Fischer until he couldn’t get paid – woops) urging, took unknowing advantage of a health care summit in Louisville’s poor West End. Literally turned the event sponsored by the West Chestnut Street Baptist Church and Norton Cancer Institute into a campaign event.
Here’s what he had to say after giving Lt. Gov. Dr. Daniel Mongiardo some sort of award (no idea what it was for, someone doesn’t know that press releases should, you know, contain info):
“Most of us are not getting our money’s worth from our health care system,” observed Dr. Cassaro. “As your U.S Senator, I will propose real health care reform and not the band-aid approach supported by the major presidential candidates.”
Seriously. At a health care summit. He had the gall to talk about how awesome he’ll be as a senator and then put out a press release about it.
Dr. Cassaro is a good guy. Surely he can find someone to help prevent embarrassing situations like this in the future.
