What, there’s someone out there who thought Greg Fischer’s Public Integrity Unit would find wrongdoing at Louisville Metro Animal Services?
Here’s a joint statement from Cindi Fowler and Kelly Downard:
We welcome the opportunity to review the findings of the Commonwealth Attorney’s Office as well as the Public Integrity Unit. The Metro Animal Services Ad Hoc Committee began its work last September in hopes of resolving a number of questions that arose out of reports following the death of an animal under the control of Metro Animal Services. The Metro Council worked hard last year to compile our report and we look forward to reading the work of two other bodies to get answers to some of the questions that we weren’t allowed to investigate.
Because this body has not had the opportunity to read this document prior to its release to the press by the Mayor’s Office, we will not be able to make any comments regarding its content. As co-chairs for the Animal Services Committee we look forward to beginning to close out our work on this matter by calling those persons who were kept from speaking to the committee last fall and following up on any items uncovered within the PIU report.
We already know that Metro Council found wrongdoing. So much wrongdoing that it chastised the mayor and his henchwoman, Sadiqa Reynolds. It went so far as to create a whistleblower protection ordinance in honor of our investigative reporting.
So the PIU finding nothing?
Pass the popcorn and put on your goggles.
- Animal Services Ad-Hoc Cmte Report Released [December 17, 2014]
- Council Overwhelmingly Passes Whistleblower Law [December 18, 2014]
There you go. Read all about what the Metro Council discovered and reported.
Then read all about the entire council voting in unison to stick it to Greg Fischer and his team.
Remember it all as you hear about Fischer’s own people saying they found no wrongdoing. And know in your heart, your mind, your gut that he’s flat-out lying.
It’s some serious bullshit.
