Greg Fischer’s top dog, Tommy Elliott, should be found in violation of campaign finance law, says the KREF. Tommy’s the head of Kentucky Retirement Systems’ board, as well. THAT’S the guy in charge, folks. That’s the guy. That said – Emily Dennis dragged her feet with the Steve Henry case, half-assing everything and she’s doing the same again. Even Marty Cogan thinks it’s a joke. And if you think having Steve Beshear’s son represent Elliott isn’t a major conflict of interest, you’re living on another planet. [C-J/AKN]

What kind of news does your oh-so-objective radio station focus on today? A piece about CFL light bulbs harming your skin and Mittens Romney’s controversial work history allegedly being amazing. [84WHAS Here & Here]

    Love how this afternoon the CJ posted a heart-warming story about charity helping pets. Too bad the charity is in Las Vegas. It would be too much for LMAS to have impact on this community for the better.
