It is said that mockery is the sincerest form of flattery. According to today's Courier Report Council members want AG opinion on mayor's Center City deal with Cordish courier-journal The Courier-Journal I should be flattered as heck.
Sad thing is I am not.
The big story today is the Council asking the AG to investigate the deal with Cordish Group, a deal I have questioned repeatedly throughout this blog and I am glad to see they did this, as well as asking for a ruling on the Slugger Field rent going to the Downtown Development Corp (DDC) without Metro Council oversight.
I agree with asking the questions.
In fact I agree so much I asked the AG for a ruling on the conflict of interest concerning Slugger Field 2 DAYS SOONER then the Council on December 10.
This is a problem that has been ongoing since 2003 and I have reported on it here: Louisville News and Politics: ABRAMSON AND HIS CROWN
The questions were asked then about Abramson bypassing the Council in many regards. John David Dyche entitled his CJ article that led to mine Abramson's Lordly ways.
The Council does read my blog and I guess they decided to act AFTER I did. Interesting isn't it? That a lowly blogger can put enough heat on the Council to do what they should have been doing all along?
Come to think of it guess I am flattered after all.
