KY-Gov: Gov. Ernie Fletcher (R) Indicted

Posted by DavidNYC

From the Lexington Herald-Leader, via the BluegrassReport:

The special grand jury that’s been investigating state government hiring practices indicted Gov. Ernie Fletcher on three misdemeanors for conspiracy, official misconduct and political discrimination.

The jury also indicted former Transportation Cabinet official Sam Beverage for perjury, which is a felony.

And the jury also submitted to Franklin Circuit Judge William Graham 14 more indictments that are under seal.

Those indictments cover crimes that may have occurred before Aug. 29, 2005, when Fletcher pardoned all administration officials except himself.

Keep checking BluegrassReport for further updates.

Sounds groovy. I just hope that the KY Republican bench doesn't produce a Jodi Rell-like figure to follow up this assclown.

(Just got back from a 2.5 week vacation. I'm wiped! I need a break from all that vacationing!)
