WHAT DO DISTRICT 13 METRO COUNCILWOMAN VICKIE WELCH AND COUNTY ATTORNEY MIKE O'CONNELL HAVE IN COMMON?
Apparently neither mind ethics violations for campaign purposes. On Saturday Councilwoman Vickie Welch had advertised a coffee with her District. You know the whole it is an election year so I need to act like I am keeping in touch with those I represent game. All on our tax dollar of course.
Unfortunately, as is usual for Vickie, she does not care about breaking the rules to get what she wants.
Take the pictures above for example.
As a member of Vickie's District when you showed up to discuss issues relevant to the District, supposedly a non partisan open event for all members of her District, you were treated instead to a reelect Vickie Welch event which of course is against the ethics laws and is illegal. Vickie knows it and broke the rules anyway.
And she did it using OUR taxpayer funds as is typical with the elitist Democratic machine incumbents.
Does it matter?
Certainly not to Vickie Welch who is part of the machine insiders who believe they can do whatever they want. Want more?
Not only was this illegal and unethical but the list of guests in attendance was as well. Why exactly was sitting County Attorney, and candidate for the same, Mike O'Connell there?
Why as an officer of the Court did he stay there and do absolutely NOTHING to address this illegal behavior? Does he not have a duty and an obligation to uphold the laws? Is he now guilty of aiding and abetting?
Of course not if you are a sitting County Attorney who got the job by appointment and are a Democrat insider as well. At least that is the way these morons operate. His handling of the whole Jim King case was enough to prove to me what a hack he is.
He had to be forced to do his job AFTER allowing an asinine comment to be published from his office KNOWING it was a false statement to make. He allowed an Assistant DA to state apparently through Frank Mascagni Louisville News and Politics: YES IT IS TRUE: CRIMINAL CHARGES FILED AGAINST KING ATTORNEYS:
Mascagni said an assistant county attorney reviewing the complaint said he planned to send Springston a letter suggesting he go to the Kentucky Bar Association with his complaint.
Peas in a pod in Welch and O'Connell? You bet.
With Commonwealth Attorney Dave Stengel bought by Jim King and carrying his water, Councilwoman Vickie Welch a Dem insider who knowingly abuses OUR TAX funds for her reelection campaign, and now County Attorney Mike O'Connell being an inside part of taxpayer fund abuse and reelection violations with no repercussions, one has to wonder how in the hell do you get justice and fairness in Jefferson County elections.
We have a Judge who got elected (Katie King) by the use of illegal funds and still is on the bench, though criminal charges are still being investigated, her Dad, and illegal campaign finance aider and abettor unindicted co conspirator, Metro Councilman Jim King is trying to buy the Mayoral ship and now this.
Trust that someone will be filing charges against Vickie Welch in the near future.
Trust further that since County Attorney Mike O'Connell cannot and will not do his job that charges will be filed against him as well.
It is time to send a message to all the insider elitist that they better wake up and pay attention. Times are changing and We The People will not allow this "entitlement" mentality any longer.
I know I won't.
