MONGIARDO/CONWAY: What does it say when Louisville's own Jack Conway doesn't get the endorsement of the entrenched Louisville politicians? In many minds it says plenty. Dan Mongiardo has racked up about 50 endorsements here in Louisville that can be viewed here: We are the (Mongiardo) World WHAS11 Louisville, Kentucky and Indiana News Political Blog It would appear that even the Louisville Democratic Party is getting sick of the same old business as usual or maybe Louisvillians are paying attention to the politicians that seem to be playing with the Jim King case after all.
You can hear Lt. Governor Dan Mongiardo live this week on the MyViewMatters Radio Show Wednesday night at 7 PM on WKJK 1080 AM. It is simulcast as well at Ky Grassroots Radio as usual. The call in number is (502)571-1080.
SPEAKING OF KING: I have unashamedly been bringing the truth to the people about Jim and Katie King for almost 2 years now but even I didn't care for the CJ article today. As many of you know the "grades" on Louisville judges came out 3 weeks ago and Katie failed the test, which surprised no one I know, so why did the CJ decide to use it as a story today? This was relevant 3 weeks ago but to report this now 3 weeks later makes people think you really do have an agenda. 4 district judges score below average in Louisville Bar survey courier-journal.com The Courier-Journal
KING PART 2: Has anyone been paying attention to the "endorsements" King has collected? Does anyone care? King has collected endorsements announced today from the likes of folks such as "can I stay awake long enough to listen to this legislation before I vote on it" George Unseld and Marianne Butler.
Unseld of course was the beneficiary of the personal gay attack on Ken Herndon that Jim King was reportedly involved in. Louisville News and Politics: HERNDON DROPS LAWSUIT AND IMPLIES JIM KING INVOLVED
The attack mailer involved most likely cost Herndon the election. Bob "rubberstamp and I have no ethics " Henderson endorsed as well among others. Pretty telling for a guy who bought a Judgeship, and is trying to buy a Mayoralship as well, that the best he can get in my opinion are corrupted officials to endorse him.
COUNCIL DISTRICT 19: The UAW has endorsed Kaven Rumpel for Metro Council District 19. Once again it seems the unions are finally opening up to outsiders from the Democratic political machine here in Louisville. A Republican in a local race getting an endorsement in a primary is very telling. Kudos to the UAW for finally opening their eyes to newcomers.
This makes 2 separate unions that have endorsed a Republican candidate in a primary this week. republican candidate for State House District 46 Brian Simpson received the Teamster Local 89 endorsement last week as well.
I will be working on some legislation in Frankfort part of this week so forgive me if things get a little sparse. I will update as I can.
