P.S. Our favorite part of the faux Twitter account is this: “Greg’s learning the hard way what Steve, Heather, Bruce and 2500 clients know: once you stop paying me I will use your confidences against u” – 2:35 PM May 8th. Isn’t that sweet? During the work day, even. So let’s set the record straight yet again. Steve Henry and Heather French Henry have faced a two-year-long investigation by the Kentucky State Police’s Special Investigations unit because of their own actions. Not because Steve didn’t pay me– he did. Illegally. Just so happens that it took two private citizens to get the investigation started because Greg Stumbo refused to launch an investigation and the U.S. Attorney’s office didn’t want to seem “too political.”
Yup, I said it. Greg Stumbo refused to launch an investigation and tried to quash it politically. Even went so far as to have Dale Emmons tell me to “shred anything else you’ve got on Steve” on election loss night 2007.
So keep attacking, folks, because there’s a lot more I can release. A whole heck of a lot. I’ll keep naming names and publishing items all kinds of people in power don’t want me to release.
The Kentucky Department of Public Health reported two more confirmed cases of swine flu to the Centers for Disease Control today. The newly reported cases involve adult males from Madison and Oldham counties. Yup, we’re all gonna die of the pig flu. And then we’re all gonna die of the poverty. Kroger runs on bread and milk are imminent. This brings Kentucky to 12 cases. Click the clicky to keep constant track of the pig flu terror. [Health Alerts]
Mitch McConnell is definitely supporting usury. And he’s received over $5 million from the banking industry. You still wondering why he’s part of the problem or why he’s standing against the Truth In Lending Act? [DownWithTyranny]
What was that about Rush Limbaugh and the GOP not being racist? What was that, Brad Cummings? “Think reparations” my ass. [Pam’s House Blend]

Richie Farmer can’t adequately handle his job as agriculture commissioner. How the heck could he handle being governor? Even Republicans cringe at the thought of him running the Commonwealth. [Bluegrass Politics]
Ben Chandler did something we approve of! Yes, we’re as surprised as everyone else. He sponsored a bill in the U.S. House that passed 275-155 that will authorize $6.4 billion in fiscal year 2010 for green school renovation and construction projects. What is it with Republicans who continue to stand against actual progress? Greening schools will save taxpayers zillions of dollars. It’s a flipping no-brainer. [Congressional Quarterly]

It’s National Police Week and all kinds of Kentucky po-leece menz are in Washington, D.C. to commemorate the addition of the names of fallen officers to the National Law Enforcement Officers Memorial. [Jim Carroll]
