So what do our local Democrats have in common besides party affiliation? Their belief that they can misuse our tax money for their benefit whenever they want.
In April I did a story on Democrat Vickie Welch and Mike O'Connell for misusing our tax funds as their personal reelection slush fund and apparently the Dems still have not gotten the message. Throughout this site you will see article after article about Councilman Bob Henderson and his ethics violations that Metro will not do anything about since he is a Dem and part of the Abramson rubberstamp regime.
Once again Henderson and the Dems in the South End think they can do whatever they want. This weekend they used our tax money once again as their personal slush fund for the Farnsley Moremen Ice Cream Social event.
I received several calls on Monday asking me why Henderson, Charlie Miller, and Mayoral candidate Greg Fisher were allowed to give a political speech at this event since it was open to the public and NOT advertised as a Democratic rally. It was supposed to be a gathering for the locals to socialize not a political event.
For the record if a candidate was there passing out literature or speaking one on one with those in attendance I can understand that, but to allow any party the right to hijack the event and make it a political rally is a misuse of our public funds and our public trust once again.
For the Democrats here in Louisville it is a way of life and this is one example of how they manipulate elections.
Sorry not with my tax money.
Look at the following as advertised:

Riverside, the Farnsley-Moremen Landing to host "Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social" July 11
Wednesday June 30, 2010
There isn’t a better or more refreshing treat on a hot summer day than an ice cream cone.
The staff at Riverside, the Farnsley-Moremen Landing discovered this fact nine years ago, when they hosted their first-ever "Old Fashioned Ice Cream Social." The perennial favorite is back again this year, and will be hosted on the grounds of the historic home on Sunday, July 11, from 1-5 p.m.
"Every year, we’re able to make this event better and we’re looking forward to having the public out to the Ice Cream Social again on July 11," said Patti Linn, site manager. "It’s a fun event, and perfect for the entire family."
Ehrler’s will be providing ice cream concessions featuring great flavors familiar to local residents. Food vending will be provided by the Kentucky Cattlemen’s Association and will include ribeye steak sandwiches, cheeseburgers, hot dogs, French fries and more.
Live music from the MacDaddies and Josh and Holly will take place from 1-5 p.m., and children will be sure to enjoy games, miniature train rides and a farm animal petting zoo. Other activities will include discounted tours of the Farnsley-Moremen House, pony rides and horse-drawn carriage rides. Featured events will include an ice cream eating contest at 3 p.m., with awards going to fastest eater, messiest eater and neatest eater.
Admission to the event is free. Some of the activities will require the purchase of a ticket (train rides, carriage rides, pony rides and tours of the historic home).
The Ice Cream Social is made possible by Riverside, the Farnsley-Moremen Landing, Inc., Metro Parks and Councilman Bob Henderson (D-14). Please call 935-6809 for more details.
By allowing this to happen the Farnsley Moremen folks have just violated their non profit 501(C) status as well by illegally allowing this to happen. The people of PRP and Valley Station are used to these shenagians form the moron Henderson but this will not be allowed any longer.
$4000 or OUR money was appropriated for this event. The request was made by Bob Henderson on behalf of the 501(C) Farnsley Moremen organization and passed on June 3, 2010.

RIVERSIDE, THE FARNSLEY-MOREMAN LANDING, INC. FOR PROGRAM EXPENSES RELATED TO ICE CREAM SOCIAL.

Motion to approve made by Doug Hawkins and seconded by Judy Green.
By voice vote, the item was Approved.
Farnsley Moremen should lose their non profit status immediately for allowing this. Henderson, Fisher, and Miller should all face penalties. But of course that will not happen either. There will be an ethics complaint filed against Henderson and Miller. There will also be a challenge made against Farsnley Moremen and their status.
We will see what becomes of it but now you know. Remember it in November.
