Here’s Greg Fischer saying his mayoral campaign fund and his inaugural fund were separate and had nothing to do with each other:
He said unused funds were used for civic purposes at the Community Foundation of Louisville. And that’s what he told inauguration supporters at the time.
Unfortunately for Greg, we told you yesterday that that couldn’t be further from the truth. Because prominent members of Louisville’s business community – Democrats, actually – contributed to Fischer’s inauguration fund (they weren’t campaign supporters) only to have their contributions show up as having gone to Fischer’s campaign to help retire his debt.
There’s also a paper trail backing this up. There’s proof that the two accounts weren’t really separate and had everything to do with each other.
This will be swept under the rug until Fischer gets a formidable opponent. Then he’ll be a political afterthought.
