Page One & The ‘Ville Voice On TeeVee

We’re on teevee. Again. Rick jacked his eye up while mowing his yard or whatever, so ignore him if one of his eyes is crossed or wanders off in a strange direction.

Hey, UofL folks, you like trying this case in the court of public opinion? We do. Get ready for us to begin releasing thousands of additional documents we have in our possession. You won’t like it.

Yarmuth Gives In To Northup Threat

John Yarmuth’s Congressional campaign has given in to Anne Northup’s threats. Northup’s campaign threatened to air radio ads demanding that Yarmuth suspend campaign advertisements during storm recovery efforts in the 3rd District. So he gave in, pulling his ad buys.

Yarmuth said: “I am working very closely with Mayor Abramson and Governor Beshear to guarantee that Louisville receives all the resources necessary for a quick and full recovery. With seven weeks until Election Day, there will be plenty of time for a debate about continuing to move Louisville and America forward, but now is the time to put aside politics and rebuild.”

“I have asked our buyers to immediately remove all broadcast, cable, and radio advertising, and they have assured me that all ads could be stopped by the end of the day tomorrow. I hope that my opponent will join me in taking a pause from advertising so that we can focus all our efforts on helping Louisville recover.”

We think it’s a total cop-out. Does it matter if there are political advertisements on-air during the clean-up? It’s not like life comes to a halt. And no other candidates are pulling back.

Yarmuth got suckered into a Northup trick. She didn’t want to spend money and didn’t want Yarmuth to have a leg-up.

Discrimination Suit Filed in Louisville – McDonald’s Employee Called Customers “Faggots”

Come on, people! We have a city-wide Fairness Ordinance for a reason! Discrimination on the basis of perceived sexual orientation is about the stupidest thing one can do. Stop this bull! McDonald’s should fire the insufferable, bigoted woman for using slurs. We may just hop down there this afternoon to take a film crew and ask some questions.

The American Civil Liberties Union has filed a complaint with the Metro Human Relations Commission. God knows if it’ll ever get anywhere, but they’ve filed it just the same.

So check this out: Ryan Marlatt, Teddy Eggers and three of their friends stopped at the McDonald’s at 420 East Market Street (telephone 502.589.3753, manager is Phyllis) for lunch on July 26. While waiting for their food, a service worker behind the counter referred to them as “faggots” while talking to a coworker. The customers made it clear they weren’t there to be insulted and requested to speak with a manager. While continuing to wait, the woman behind the counter repeatedly called them “faggots” in front of other patrons, also referring to them as “cocksucker” and “bitch.”

So classy. A McDonald’s employee calling some gay dudes “cocksucker” and “bitch.”
