Please hold your laughter.
Ernie Fletcher’s re-election campaign is having a field day trying to spin the release of the Kentucky Central report as wholly negative for Steve Beshear. Try as they might, it’s not working.
The campaign’s latest e-mail blast spends seven paragraphs attempting to obfuscate the facts, accusing Beshear of making excuses and coming up with distortions. We’re no experts here, but we haven’t seen Beshear trying to spin this anywhere. The only thing Steve Beshear has said is that he felt he handled things appropriately.
End of the e-mail is the best: “A report providing documentary evidence refuting Steve Beshear’s claims will be provided tomorrow.” That’s right. The Fletcher campaign (ahem, Larry Forgy) thinks it can push out a document– from a campaign, no less– to refute what has already been examined and for the most part resolved.
Hoo boy. This should be entertaining.
