Today at 10:30 A.M.

    CJ article says that HUD does not release to public why requests are turned down. This one is easy. Mayor Cordishpocket had some real dumbasses working for him and never spent the money Federal agencies gave them for projects like this so the Feds figured Louisville didn’t need it. If the Mayor had spent less time up Cordish’s ass he would have known what was happening in real life throughout his administrative offices.

    402kid: You’re right about Mayor Cordishpocket and the buffoons who accommodate his office, but you’re incorrect that he could have avoided the HUD loss “..had he spent less time up Cordish’s ass…” Anyone dumb enough to do what he did for Cordish (even though the CJ has ignored calling for a federal grand jury investigation) is STILL TOO DUMB, even if he wasn’t in Cordish’s hole.
