Michael “Whitey” Adkins, Democratic candidate for the 25th District State House seat in eastern Kentucky has what the Salyersville Independent calls a “black past.”
Here’s the story in a nutshell: Ruh ro! The guy has a history of screwing landlords, stiffing creditors and various other crazy junk. Not exactly the kind of guy who should be winning elections in Kentucky. And while not quite as serious as the Albers guy in Louisville who fired a gun at someone, it’s definitely serious.
The Kentucky Democratic Party should distance itself from this guy in the same manner Steve Robertson distanced the Republican Party of Kentucky from Albers.
To make it easier, we figured it’s best just to give you the story.
