Why is it no one officially involved with the Kentucky Democratic Party will criticize one of their own? Why are elected Democrats afraid to call a phobe a phobe? What’s the deal with being absolutely petrified of discussing Todd Hollenbach’s insane and public approval of bigot Frank Simon?
Who knows. But it cracks us up to watch those in the minority nervously change the subject when they’re asked to comment on something as serious as Hollenbach’s actions or lack thereof. While admirable that Sen. Ernesto Scorsone has overcome great adversity and stands proudly with his Party, it boggles the mind to think he’d be apologetic for the treasurer-elect’s decision to support ignorance.
I also asked him … why no one in the KDP criticized Todd Hollenbach for not publicly renouncing the endorsement of homophobe hate-monger Frank Simon. He gave the expected criticism of Simon, but unfortunately fell back on the same defense of Hollenbach and refusal to criticize him for not renouncing the endorsement. I’m just baffled by this response that I get from everyone in the KDP. If you’re not willing to criticize one of your own members for associating with Frank Simon, when on earth would you? Baffling.
And before anyone gets all up in a huff by e-mailing us, calling family and all-around freaking out? Todd was afraid to publicly denounce his endorsement from Frank Simon and sent letters to media big dogs making that quite clear.
Will we ever see the day when Democrats in Kentucky aren’t afraid to speak openly and honestly? Let’s hope so.
