We’ve been incensed over the hateful anti-gay mailer attacking Ken Herndon during the May primary for several weeks now. So what you’re about to read is probably not too surprising. But it’s come to our attention that C-FAIR, the Louisville Fairness organization, is attempting to paint Ken Herndon as something he’s clearly not: a racist bigot.
What complete horse shiz.
Fairness is up in arms that George Unseld is connected to the mail piece (via his buddy Denise Bentley). And because there’s evidence that potentially connects Unseld to the piece either directly or indirectly, they feel the need to cry racism. Sorry, but that doesn’t fly in this instance. C-FAIR can get over it.
Carla Wallace, the woman who co-founded Fairness with Ken Herndon (and whose father gave $1 million in the form of an endowment), has made it no secret that she opposed Herndon’s candidacy in favor of Unseld because Unseld was an original fairness supporter. That’s all fine and dandy. But now she and others at Fairness/C-FAIR are taking things a step further by reaching out to members of the media and prominent gay folks in the community in an attempt to demonize Ken Herndon. Classic move of character assassination.
