Louisville is in the pocket of the Arnold Foundation, to say the least:
In an effort to improve the criminal justice system in one part of Kentucky, the Louisville Metro Government last month partnered with the Laura and John Arnold Foundation (LJAF) to design tools, pilot innovations and test system reforms to increase public safety, make the criminal justice system run more efficiently and fairly, and be more cost-effective.
It’s certainly not the city’s first brush with the Arnolds, as Greg Fischer has spent the past couple years getting cozy.
We’ve written about the Arnold Foundation quite a bit locally:

Surely you can understand why so many are now skeptical of their involvement in anything in Louisville.
