With the onslaught of casino gossip in Frankfort and all the shiz that’s gone down the past few days, the Republican Party of Kentucky today filed a complaining with the Legislative Ethics Commission begging for an investigation into whether or not Kentucky’s House leadership are extortionists.
FRANKFORT, Ky. – The Republican Party of Kentucky (RPK) today filed a complaint with the Legislative Ethics Commission asking for an immediate investigation into allegations that House Democratic Leadership are extorting members of the horse industry and race tracks for campaign contributions in exchange for support of casino legislation.
“It is my hope that the Legislative Ethics Commission will make this ‘Slot-Trot’ inquiry a high priority as public confidence in House Democratic Leadership is rapidly eroding,” said RPK Chairman Steve Robertson.
The RPK’s complaint with the LEC cites Mark Hebert’s February 26 story about Democratic House members (“perhaps including the House Speaker” – haha) and their attempt to “whip the horse industry into shape” for political (ahem, casino) reasons. Read the full complaint here.
In addition to the LEC complaint, RPK Chairman Steve Robertson sent a letter to Attorney General Jack Conway requesting an investigation into potential wrongdoing (evil doers! PLEASE let the RPK use “evil doers!” in a press release soon). Peep that letter here.
While usually in disagreement with our perfect, righteous beliefs, the RPK has really proved it knows how to play politics this go round. Totally trumps that silly business Jennifer Moore started with Doug “Protector of Our White Women” Hawkins.
Oh Oh! You think some crazy shiz isn’t going down with the Democrats in Frankfort these days? Well, take a look at THIS. Democratic Representative Dottie Sims was KICKED OFF the House Elections, Constitutional Amendments and Intergovernmental Affairs Committee because she didn’t vote for the casinos bit. Come ON!
