Louisville, KY - In Louisville leadership political connections are all that matters. From Mayor Greg Fischer to Metro Council President Jim King, from the Democratic mafia who cower in fear to the spineless Republican members who refuse to stand up, the resounding theme is always the same.
Who cares about the people.
Last week yet another high ranking Metro employee was arrested. In fact two of them were. Your tax dollars at work.
may recall the case of Parks Director Mike Heitz who was caught
drinking and driving in our tax payer bought SUV, on camera by a news
crew, acting like it was no big deal. Until it was. Heitz claimed
everyone does it and still has his job today. On our dime.
Guess who doesn't have their job. Joey Sears the whistleblower who outed him.
Director Steve Rowlands is just the latest to get outed. These cases
get covered up everyday by the administration who blatantly ignores the
potential financial liability to we the taxpayer. When one of these
drunken fools kills somebody, it will happen eventually, remember the
total disregard for the public safety or families of citizens of
Louisville by knowingly, carelessly, intentionally, and willfully
allowing these atrocities to manifest by your elected leadership.
As the old saying goes, it is all about who you know and blow in Louisville government not who is best for the job.
Rowlands was with Elizabeth Hoffman at El Nopal getting way too
"friendly" inside the establishment and were asked to leave because of
public indecency. They went to our tax payer provided SUV and continued
what they weren't allowed to finish inside.
isn't Hoffman's first dance. Her husband Don works for Rowlands and
Hoffman has been Jim King's side piece for quite awhile. Or was.
is how she got the job with the Democratic caucus in the first place so
I am told by more than one credible source. I have known about the
King-Hoffman connection for quite some time but never wanted to hurt her
family. King's family simply doesn't care anyway because they have put
up with his endless stream of bought and paid for girlfriends forever.
believe me fine, but where there is smoke there is fire and when
multiple sources come through with the same story generally there is
truth to it. Make up your own mind.
of what Fischer says about Rowlands now, he even said he wanted him to
stay on in his job, the truth is always different. He needs Rowlands
because Rowlands knows things.
fate will rest with King. He used her to bully every Democrat on the
Council to get his way. Now that she has been caught screwing around on
not only her husband, but King as well, her credibility is shot. But King
will not suffer.
I feel sorry for Hoffman. I wouldn't know if King threatened her husband's job and that
is how she ended up with him, or whether she entered into a relationship
with him voluntarily. I cannot imagine just how low of an opinion she
has of herself to be in a situation with King, and now Rowlands. I feel
sorry for her family for having to witness her public breakdown. Make no mistake this was a breakdown.
But it is just one more example of how the inner circle works. Use and abuse.
is doubling down as well. Appointing Daniel Frockt as interim finance
director is just one more example of how inner politics play out.

lawsuit is against Greg Fischer on a personal basis and NOT in his
official capacity as Mayor nor against the City of Louisville. As such he
has no legal basis for using our taxpayer money for his defense.
short, it is his personal financial obligation to defend against this
suit. Instead, he has illegally, in my opinion, spent tens of thousands
of our taxpayer dollars defending himself in his personal legal

is an assistant County Attorney whose number one case is Greg Fischer's
legal defense at this time. Daniel Frockt is now heading the Finance
Department who oversees our tax dollar spending.
Coincidence? Not hardly.
It is the way the game is played.
And we pay for the abuse.
Fischer and Jim King own their own businesses. They would never buy
vehicles and give them to employees in those businesses knowing they
have a drinking problem the personal liability against them would be way
too much. So why don't they rid us of these problem children?
Because it isn't their money.
That is how they win.
Democrats on the Council are owned by King and so scared of him they
reelected him as Council President. They know all the illegal dealings.
They know the dirty secrets but they are so scared of him they let him
stay in power.
The Republicans on the Council may be outnumbered but they have an obligation to stand up anyway and refuse to do so.
They wouldn't even put up a candidate to oppose him out of their own fear they would suffer as well.
Fischer who is about as incompetent and corrupt as any was even allowed
to run essentially unopposed n the last Mayoral election.
The uni party is alive and well in Louisville folks. There is only one question left to ask.
How long will you allow it?
