Everyone in Frankfort is rallying for Hillary Clinton’s husband, former President Bill Clinton. And by everyone we mean everyone. Especially lawmakers.

Lawmakers skip hearing, disclosure bill stalls
A Senate bill that would require greater disclosure from groups promoting or opposing constitutional amendments may have died Tuesday because not enough House members attended a necessary committee hearing.
The sponsor of Senate Bill 148, Sen. Damon Thayer, R-Georgetown, waited in the audience for about 20 minutes into the scheduled 8:30 a.m. hearing of the House Committee on Elections, Constitutional Amendments and Intergovernmental Affairs. But most of the panel’s 12 members failed to arrive, and Kentucky State Police officers could not quickly locate them in the Capitol Annex.
Chairman Darryl Owens, D-Louisville, then canceled the meeting, the last planned for the 2008 session. While it’s possible a special meeting could be called later, Thayer’s bill is important and complicated enough to need serious study, more than a special meeting might be able to offer, Owens said.
Good luck getting any news that’s not about Hillary today.
