Major Education Scandal Gets Ignored By Paper

You ever have those days where everyone around is insanely wrapped up in something? That happened to us yesterday. Please accept our apologies for giving you crap to read. [Deep Crap Thoughts]

Republican Party of Kentucky Chairman Steve Robertson questioned Jack Conway for the 48th day: “At this point, these releases are purely symbolic,” said Robertson. “Jack Conway has no intention of ever answering these questions and after all this time…we certainly don’t trust him to give us the truth. All we can do now is continue to remind voters that Jack Conway uses bad judgment…both professionally and politically. He will always put his own interests above those of average Kentuckians.” [Press Release]

I think it’s funny that Jonathan Miller (is he always promoting that ridiculous book?) is trying to make hay out of this. Fitting, really, since he and his sister are keen on financially supporting people who do much worse. He’s ignorantly opening the door for Republicans to pick and choose the loons from Beshear’s donor list for ridiculous quotes. Further interesting that the two papers of record in Kentucky are essentially ignoring Jerry Abramson and his many foibles. [HuffPo]

Reality is that Jerry Abramson’s religion will play more than a silent roll in this state. I’d be mega-wealthy if I had a buck for every time I’ve heard “fuckin Jew” out of the mouths of Republicans and Democrats over the past year. [WFPL]

Ruh ro. John David Dyche’s folks at the Courier-Journal, which publishes his column in its pages and is responsible for that publication, allowed him to run a piece about the $180,000 Jerry Abramson slush fund that was also critical of Jefferson County Public Schools. [C-J/AKN]

Metro Animal Services is such a fucking disaster (thanks, Greg, for allowing it to rot) that people are calling for cat food on a FOOD forum. [Louisville Hot Bytes]

Never to worry, though, because the focus of LMAS is apparently on improving “customer service.” [WHAS11]

Tornado sirens sounded by MetroSafe for no emergency and the mayor’s office is busy explaining why the entire system was accidentally set off after testing a repair. [FOX41]

Let’s ask ourselves why a large newspaper with a dedicated higher education reporter hasn’t bothered to cover this scandal within the KCTCS in Owensboro. It involves the governor and most of his people and is costing you, the taxpayer, thousands upon thousands of dollars. [Page One]

Welcome To Nothing But All Judy, All Day, Forever

Metro Council has asked for clarity on removal of members. Ole Dirty Judy should be getting ready for ouster. [WAVE3]

Like in this California town, there are a few public officials Louisville should get to recall. Same goes for a few others out in the state. [NY Times]

Jonathan Miller officially quit his job with state government yesterday to be a lawyer again. [Page One]

The Herald-Leader’s day tripper says Old Louisville is great as a new place to visit. [H-L]

Here’s the deal – you should be taking advantage of these special rates at Kentucky State Parks cottages over the next two months. [More Page One]

Greg Fischer says everything is on the table when it comes to the budget battle. But we all know that’s not true. [WFPL]

Tension is mounting as Ole Dirty Judy heads toward her ethics hearing. The days of wasting our taxpayer dollars could be coming to an end and the councilcritters know it. [FOX41]

Teddy Gordon has yet another lawsuit against Jefferson County Public Schools. Apparently a girl who transferred schools after being bullied isn’t allowed to play sports. [WHAS11]

Woah, the KHRC’s executive director has a hot mess on her hands over Life At Ten. Be sure to check out the fun facts, too. [Paulick Report & More]

Go to this music thingy at Adath Jeshurun on Sunday. It’s good stuff. [Consuming Louisville]

Okay, really, what’s wrong with calling the State Senate a bunch of fat guys? It’s TRUE. True story. Same for the State House. If people can’t handle the truth, well, they need to haul ass outta Frankfort posthaste. [C-J/AKN]
