RPK Should Practice The BS It Preaches

And Tres Watson doesn’t have a conflict of interest? His former employer and close pal, Scott Jennings, did P.R. spin for Jim Ramsey and the UofL Foundation. He’s tight with people all over UofL. So let’s not act as if it’s not all incestuous. Put down the bottle, RPK liars, and look for new employment because you’re about to get burned just like the Democrats are being burned with Julian… and soon to be Wendell. [H-L]

While you were distracted by the Trump circus… William Browder knows Vladimir Putin’s Russia all too well.

No, KDP Circus Isn’t “Close” To Ending

PEE ALERT! Jared Smith has absolutely no idea what he’s talking about. The Kentucky Democratic Party has only just begun to feel the scorch of decades upon decades of good old boy corruption. It’s not remotely close to being over. I was right about, oh, everything else. Was right about Julian Carroll. Right about this. What’s coming next will shake the KDP to its core and make it impossible to rebuild with the existing crew of electeds. Until that current crop of shysters is pushed out, nothing will improve. Note: Adam Edelen and Terry McBrayer are two of the most problematic Democrats in the Commonwealth and they’re part of the problem. Source: Everything they say and do. [H-L]

Three weeks ago, one of Donald Trump’s personal lawyers vigorously denied that the commander in chief had anything to do with Donald Trump Jr.’s statement about a secret meeting with a Russian lawyer. However, the validity of those comments was questioned on Monday when The Washington Post reported that Trump had personally dictated the response his elder son would use to address the media.

You Should Despise Everyone In Frankfort

Don’t let Democrats like Ray Jones act like they haven’t been in constant communication with Julian Carroll because they have. These people say one thing to the media and another behind closed doors. Nearly everyone I’ve spoken with tells me they’ve spoken with Carroll and that he claims it’s all fake. Guess being 86-years-old makes a corrupt old shyster like that behave just like Donald Trump when hit with reality. [H-L]

While presiding over the official commissioning ceremony for the USS Gerald Ford aircraft carrier in Norfolk, Virginia on Saturday, Donald Trump took a moment to make a brief political request. [HuffPo]

Oh my god, Bill Johnson, you’ve just tainted your own legacy. I mean, sure, it was already nothing to write home about. But now you’re on record being the only person to stand up for a monstrous, hypocritical… whatever he is. He went after that young man and then used the full force of the good old boy government to silence him when he begged for help. Kentucky State Police troopers tried to help him but the upper echelon of con artists stopped them. It’s insane. And now you’re attacking the guy’s credibility after he spent years and years suffering from what is likely Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder!? You’re a monster, too. Anyone defending Julian Carroll is a fucking pig. Fuck these people. And Bob Stivers knew about this Julian Carroll story – it did not catch him off guard. He’s known about it since day one. So have several other state senators – Democrats and Republicans alike. Stivers is just a conniving, lying jackass behaving as if he’s above reproach. P.S. Tom Loftus writing about this now sure is ripe because he, too, has known about it for a number of years. Frankfort is the worst place in Kentucky and we would all be lucky if it flooded and washed away. [C-J/AKN]

Greg Stumbo should watch his back because several of the folks who used to work for him have turned on him. He and David James (someone should ask David about all those old AOL ads from the late 90s) were both aware of the Geis situation. Both have had discussions about it with various people since 2014. It’s now up to Andy Beshear to dig out what he can and kick all these con artists right in the gut. His current team at OAG is pretty solid and they’re capable of getting to the bottom of it. Because if they don’t, Matt Bevin is coming after them politically and it won’t end well. [Nick Storm]

Tres Watson didn’t think the allegations were a big deal in 2014 when I took them to him and discussed them with Scott Jennings. Both of them dismissed them, claimed I was making a mountain out of a molehill, that it was stupid for me to even be mentioning things to them. Nick Storm should also disclose his personal friendship with Watson if they’re going to continue to interview him. [CN|Toot]

FFS. Time for a Kentucky Democratic Party reality check. Not only were Democrats made aware of this Julian Carroll nightmare several years ago… but… Brad Bowman was well aware as a “journalist” at the State-Journal, where he twiddled his thumbs and apparently played pat-a-cake with Pat Melton on this and other scandals. It’s just absurd that he’s now handling messaging on this mess because he’s apparently as much of a hypocrite as the rest of those good old boy shysters who worked so hard to cover this Carroll scandal up. It’s almost like he’s ready to burn down his own legacy to protect a predator. Come on, Brad, get your shit together before you get buried with the rest of the inexperienced buffoons at KDP. You’re better than that. [Nick Storm]

Trump and his advisers are privately discussing the possibility of replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and some confidants are floating prospects who could take his place were he to resign or be fired, according to people familiar with the talks. [WaPo]

Newly released video of the killing of three American Special Forces soldiers in November at the gate of a military base in Jordan shows that the episode, which was initially explained as a split-second mistake by a Jordanian guard firing on Americans who failed to stop, was actually a six-minute gun battle where Americans crouched behind barriers and repeatedly waved their hands in surrender as the gunman closed in and killed them. [NY Times]

Spoiler alert: he’s responsible, regardless of whether he provided paperwork or not. It was his responsibility to follow up with the Cabinet to make sure things were on track.

If You Defend Julian’s Use Of The System To Harm His Victim(s), You’re Part Of The Good Old Boy System Of Oppression, Corruption & General Bigoted Bullshit

Tres Watson knew about the Julian Carroll mess in 2014. He didn’t “just learn” about it. He and several Republicans were aware but chose to do and say absolutely nothing about Carroll, a man they knew to be an alleged sexual predator who conspired with others in power to harm his victim(s). Now Matt Bevin is scrambling to find a way to tie this to Andy Beshear but he can’t. Unfortunately for him, it’s going to taint just as many Republicans as it will Democrats. [H-L]

The pressure’s on. Donald Trump on Monday continued to assail the multiple investigations into Russia’s interference in the 2016 election, calling out his attorney general, Jeff Sessions, ahead of private testimony this week from members of Trump’s family and inner circle. [HuffPo]

Fuck you, Kim Davis, you dumb bigot. Maybe stop hating gay people – which includes one of your children. Fucking monster – just like the idiot governor.

[C-J/AKN]

A directive from the head of ICE’s enforcement unit appears to push for tougher action than the Trump administration has publicly promised. The head of the Immigration and Customs Enforcement unit in charge of deportations has directed his officers to take action against all undocumented immigrants they may cross paths with, regardless of criminal histories. The guidance appears to go beyond the Trump administration’s publicly stated aims, and some advocates say may explain a marked increase in immigration arrests. [ProPublica]

The Senate Democrats attacked me and attempted to retaliate when I told him in 2014 about the Julian Carroll scandal. Now that the shit has hit the fan, though, they’re keen on ousting the old codger. The Senate Democratic Caucus voted to remove former governor and current state Sen. Julian Carroll as minority whip on Sunday and called on him to resign following a TV report that Carroll propositioned and allegedly groped a then-30-year-old man in 2005. [H-L]

Told You So About Julian Carroll

Tweeted this 11 months ago:

Art school. Art school. Art school. That ring a bell, Julian? You hypocrite who has sex with men.

That was shortly after Julian Carroll pulled a homophobic, transphobic stunt. It sent Kentucky Democrats into a retaliatory tailspin.

Wait. Before we continue, let’s set the stage with some photos of Julian Carroll posing with various pals of his:


Jamie Comer & Julian Carroll


Damon Thayer & Julian Carroll


Adam Edelen, Jack Conway, Julian Carroll & Crew


Govs. Patton, Fletcher, Collins, Carroll


Jean Marie!, Her Daddy & Their Dear Friend Julian

Now…

Here you go:

More than 10 years ago budding photographer Jason Geis wanted to go to art school. He says a high-profile Kentucky lawmaker took an interest in his work and promised to help him.

Instead of help, Geis said he was groped and propositioned for sex. And that’s not all. When he turned to police for help, he says the whole thing was swept under the rug.

Relying on previously undisclosed police files, a hidden recording and interviews with Geis and the lawmaker, Pure Politics offers the following eleven month investigation into the allegations and why they were kept quiet for so long.

You’re gonna want to set aside 30 minutes to go watch it all. Trigger warnings and all that. You may throw up. Consider yourself warned.

Maybe next time the Democrats will listen?

Here’s what the Kentucky Democratic Party’s spokesman Brad Bowman had to say in a prepared statement:

“We are terribly concerned by the events described in the Pure Politics piece concerning Sen. Carroll,” Bowman said. “While we acknowledge and greatly appreciate Sen. Carroll’s life-long career of public service, we cannot overlook the severity of these allegations and take them seriously.”

Pay attention when people like me tell you something is happening in Kentucky. I’ve been dropping scandals for a decade and each time people act surprised. But there’s always been a heads-up, a hint, some prep work. Always give you time to get your Aqua Net out for a touch-up or two.

Support investigative journalists and deep background researchers. They make stories like this happen. They bring to light what the public needs to see about the powerful and the corrupt. They risk everything to make it happen.

Oh, and Julian? Stop pushing anti-gay legislation while you’re trying to have sex with men. And no, it’s not an allegation. You were caught on tape. You did it. Stop it. Also, maybe resign already and go away? This is just scratching the surface. I can’t wait to talk about the rest.

Eric Conn Is So Dumb It’s Almost Painful

Wondering how I know the Republican Party of Kentucky is in worse shape than the Kentucky Democratic Party? Tres Watson is dumb enough to make statements about conflicts of interest. Publicly. To mainstream media outlets. Probably a bit upset about people within the Office of the Attorney General allegedly probing the revelation that he and the Personnel Secretary were scheming to go through personnel files of Democratic holdovers from the Beshear Administration. [H-L]

This is why tiny racist, Rand Paul, is truly a monstrous little shit. It’s a real shame the Kentucky Democratic Party doesn’t have the guts to hit him deeply and personally – to really go after him in a nasty way. Because he deserves it. Really, his entire family and all of his enablers deserve it. From Jim Milliman to his DUI-getting spokesdrunk, Kelsey Cooper. He doesn’t believe Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act go far enough. That means he wants to harm Kentuckians more than the rest of the feckless New Republicans. [HuffPo]

Hold on to your wig, Jimbo, cause it’s coming! A decade too late. But it’s still coming and you’re going to hate it. The it of which I speak: Karma. Mismanagement and excessive spending may have cost the University of Louisville Foundation as much as $100 million — dwarfing the $20 million limit in insurance coverage on its officers and directors. The size of the loss may prompt the university to go after the personal assets of former President James Ramsey and others, according to legal and insurance experts. [C-J/AKN]

The Russian lawyer who met with Donald Trump Jr. and others on the Trump team after a promise of compromising material on Hillary Clinton was accompanied by a Russian-American lobbyist — a former Soviet counterintelligence officer who is suspected by some U.S. officials of having ongoing ties to Russian intelligence, NBC News has learned. [NBC News]

Boyd Circuit Judge David Hagerman on Tuesday ruled against a former Ashland police officer who had challenged the city’s decision to fire him. Larry J. Smith, Jr. was terminated by the city commission in February. The vote was 3-0, as Commissioner Marshall Steen was absent and Commissioner Amanda Clark, whose husband is an Ashland police sergeant, abstained. [Ashland Independent]

Almost two weeks before Donald Trump Jr. published screengrabs of purported emails indicating that he arranged to meet with a Russian lawyer, President Trump’s re-election campaign paid $50,000 in legal fees to the attorney now representing the president’s son amid ongoing Russia probes.

“There’s not enough Bourbon in Kentucky.” That’s how Kentucky’s Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes responded to a request from President Donald Trump’s election fraud commission to turn over personal information about Kentucky’s registered voters. [Ronnie Ellis]

From 2003 to 2012, the last year for which statistics are available, the number of babies born dependent on drugs grew nearly fivefold in the United States. Opioids are the main culprit, and states like Kentucky are particularly hard-hit: 15 of every 1,000 infants here are born dependent on opioids. [NY Times]

Way to go, New Republicans. Of 9,461 children under the age of 18 living in Whitley County along Kentucky’s southeastern border, 7,029 are enrolled in Medicaid or the Children’s Health Insurance Program or CHIP. [More Ronnie Ellis]

Donald Trump Jr. is seeking to write off as a nonevent his meeting last year with a Russian lawyer who was said to have damaging information about Hillary Clinton. “It was such a nothing,” he told Fox News’s Sean Hannity on Tuesday. “There was nothing to tell.” But everything we know about the meeting — from whom it involved to how it was set up to how it unfolded — is in line with what intelligence analysts would expect an overture in a Russian influence operation to look like. [WaPo]

This dumb ass didn’t even have enough sense to change his hairline or pick up a lacefront wig. That is dumb. Just dumb.

Hopefully anyone who wants that con artist dead will allow the feds to get him so he can suffer in jail for the rest of his days. [H-L]

Republicans eager to justify the severe Medicaid cuts in their Obamacare repeal proposals have offered up a number of arguments. They say Medicaid doesn’t contribute to better health, or that it doesn’t offer value to its beneficiaries. They also say the proposed cuts would affect only able-bodied adults, sparing groups like low-income children that Medicaid has traditionally served. [HuffPo]
