A Deeper Look At Todd Lally’s Jobs Spot

You know in Todd Lally’s television spot where he blamed John Yarmuth for the closure of the factory he (Lally) allegedly worked in as a kid?

It’s the old Ehrler’s, which sold years before Yarmuth was elected to office.

Here’s a look:

I have no reason to believe Lally didn’t work there, but to blame the closing on Yarmuth?

Haha. Right.

It sold in the late 70s to Flav-O-Rich, according to the Secretary of State’s office, and in the early 90s some of the original owners started doing some ice cream business on a smaller scale.

Dishonesty doesn’t suit Todd Lally very well.

Woah, Frankfort Avenue Is Now Crazy Excited

Do you need a temporary job the last week of October? These guys need a driver for a super-secret project. [Paulick Report]

It’s a shame Hal Heiner wouldn’t answer questions about whether he’d veto domestic partner benefits as mayor. Last night’s “debate” was awful on all fronts and it proved the city has no solid leader for the future. Greg Fischer may be the worst candidate the Democrats have put forth in decades, but at least he has the guts not to run from the gays. Runs from honesty and transparency, true, but not the gays. [Gag]

Go watch this terrific web documentary called Detroit Lives and tell me you don’t feel a whole lot of Louisville in those shots. But in a good way. [Palladium Boots]

Are you gonna Take Back The Night this evening at the University of Louisville? [WFPL]

The gays are just cold going insane over the revelation that the Scissor Sisters will be opening for Lady Gaga on March 12 in Louisville. All gay-haters would be wise to leave Louisville the weekend of March 12, for every single person within 500 miles who loves them a meat dress and some Night Work queens will be in full froth. YES. [Backseat Sandbar]

What? WDRD going dark on September 30? Disney is set to sell the station, along with three others they own. [Various Reports]

Today at 11:00, Greg Fischer will release his “plan” for creating open, honest government. How many ideas will he borrow from Hal Heiner? And when will he offer transparency for what he’s currently involved in? Still waiting. [Press Release]

Todd Lally thinks Iraq attacked the United States on 9/11. [We Get Comments]

What’s with assholes targeting cyclists in the area? Why the extreme bitterness and ignorance? [FOX 41]

The Comfy Cow is taking over Genny’s Diner and the historic home Genny’s owner has tried to demolish for years. Really excited that we don’t have strippers to look forward to on Frankfort Avenue. [Broken Sidewalk]

SUSA: Fischer Leads Heiner, Gains Momentum

The last SurveyUSA poll had Greg Fischer at 47% and Hal Heiner at 45%.

But here are today’s numbers:

  • Greg Fischer: 48%
  • Hal Heiner: 42%
  • Jackie Green: 3%

The MOE is 4 points. But Fischer’s definitely seeing movement.

Maybe Hal Heiner’s campaign folks will finally start realizing he needs stronger support from women? And maybe a presence that isn’t completely weak?

I’ll link to crosstabs once they’re released.

Lally Blames Yarmuth For Economic Woes In Ad

Todd Lally has released his first ad of the general election and he’s blaming John Yarmuth for our economic woes:

Did you know? John Yarmuth is also responsible for: the problems with JCPS, your obesity, the problems in the Middle East, the way you feel after listening to talk radio, the gays, Nobama and the Muslins.

A little truth in advertising would go a long way.

Greg Fischer’s Got A New Campaign Spot

Greg Fischer, in his latest campaign ad, says Louisville needs open and honest government:

If openness and honesty are key, why won’t Fischer reveal the names of his political advisers? Why won’t he release the names of the people in his various advisory groups? One would think all of Fischer’s supporters – folks tying their reputation to his candidacy – would be able to force that sort of transparency.

It’s easy to say one thing and do another when running for office in this town, I guess.
