Earlier today, Chris Thieneman’s supporters/staffers falsely accused me of accepting Jim King’s campaign cash. Reality is: I’ve accepted Thieneman advertising dollars since we last had a King Southern Bank ad on this site. The only mayoral candidate who has advertised is Tyler Allen. That said, let’s dig in to Mr. Thieneman…
It must have gone unnoticed by 95% of people, but Chris Thieneman was interviewed by the Courier-Journal editorial board a couple weeks ago. And he said some crazy stuff about feeling like a prostitute. Specifically, he said he paid a $10,000 bribe to Fred Cowan in 1998 in the form of campaign contributions in exchange for a Planning & Zoning Commission approval of a trailer park in Valley Station (against “plenty of opposition”).
Here’s the excerpt:
Get that? $10,000 to Cowan in exchange for trailer park approval. Admitting to bribery. So juicy we couldn’t make it up if we tried.
