For a couple of years now the problems at LMAS have been talked about, openly outed, and still nothing has been done to fix them. Recently there is yet another scandal about uncleanliness and animals dying of a parvo/distemper outbreak due to failed leadership. This is also happening at the Kentucky Humane Society as well but that is another story for another day.
Here is one story you will want to read from LEO on former LMAS Director Gilles Melloche and his buddies Jerry Abramson and Bill Summers. Follow the money Louisville's Alt-Weekly LEO Weekly.
Additionally you should check out Jake Payne over at thevillevoice for his efforts to help LMAS. We disagree on much but Payne is doing a great thing here Let’s Work Together In An Effort For Change.
COUNTY ATTORNEY MIKE O'CONNELL should be investigated, dismissed, and jailed immediately if the reports I am getting from some of his staff are proven true. While it is no secret, though it is illegal, that many elected officials require government employees to "donate" to their campaigns it is becoming blatantly clear that the Democratic power elite apparently are now open about this illegal method of gaining campaign cash without any fear.
Case in point?
According to witnesses, who prefer to remain anonymous, O'Connell told all that were sworn in to his office on January 3, 2011 that their job is a political one and they are required to donate money to political candidates and campaigns when and where he told them to as a condition of employment.
In the meantime rumors abound that there will be a lawsuit filed soon as at least one employee is rumored to have been let go when they refused to be extorted in this way.
Additionally, according to sources Mike O'Connell also took the 2% pay raises that were approved for his employees and stuffed them into some sort of a fund that only he controls. Where does he get that authority? Our tax money approved raises should go to the employees not the County Attorney himself to dole out as he sees fit.
I don't know about you guys but I would assume O'Connell as an attorney should know extortion is illegal. Just ask Karen Sypher.
Where are the feds at now?
Apparently even 7 year olds can get citations in Louisville according to this report Officer suspended for giving 7-year-old a ticket courier-journal.com The Courier-Journal. It seems this officer was suspended for getting the child and the parents attention this way. I kind of like it myself.
I mean we gripe so much today about parent's not taking responsibility for their children, did this move awaken this parent to paying attention? Did it awaken the child to the fact there are repercussions for negative behavior?
You guys decide but it is very interesting.
