We hear from residents and elected officials in the Highlands neighborhood and West End area of Louisville that Greg Fischer’s campaign staff have been spotted removing Bruce Lunsford yard signs. On several occasions the signs have been replaced with Fischer signs, without permission, of course. Not surprising since many of Fischer’s staffers are the folks who did the same thing during the Yarmuth-Horne race in 2006. My question: Why bother? It’s not like there are that many Lunsford signs in the Highlands to begin with.
Numerous sources tell us that the Lunsford campaign will be releasing a petition of some sort re: the Senate race that’s signed by a number of influential types including labor officials. We can only imagine what it’s about. Our Lunsford campaign sources won’t comment on the matter but they also refuse to say it’s not happening. Joe’s hearing the same thing.
There’s also big time chatter of a bogus Fischer push poll that his campaign is itching to unleash. Can’t get confirmation on this one, though.
Stay tuned, kids. You don’t want to miss a moment of the political gossip the next couple weeks.
