Greg Fischer Scared, Already Going Negative

You don’t have to take my word for it. Greg Fischer is afraid he’s about to lose to Hal Heiner and he’s already going negative.

The latest from LEO Weekly’s Phillip Bailey:

While Fischer has pledged not to use negative television ads or mailers, sources say his campaign is conducting a poll to question voters about the fact that Heiner opposed the Fairness ordinance, has scoffed at global warming and is a Metro government insider.

It’s a vote the Fischer campaign is likely to highlight, but Joe Burgan, Heiner’s campaign manager, says that as mayor, Heiner will enforce the [Fairness] ordinance.

According to political observers, the injection of buzzwords, state politics and Rand Paul into the race this early indicates the Louisville businessman is a bit worried that his GOP opponent could be outpacing him, even though Democrats outnumber registered Republican voters two-to-one in Louisville.

While Fairness is a big damn deal, so is the bridges debacle. So is fudging reality surrounding a patent that Greg’s daddy bought him. So’s outright lying to the public about an award. So’s going after the livelihood of critics. So’s hiring nothing but family and non-Louisvillians for a campaign. So’s continuing the good old boy network of Jerry Abramson.
