We promote fair and honest political discussion from all sides of the ideological spectrum While my own opinions and my contributors tend toward a more progressive view, that's not always the case. I ask people to comment freely and openly to promote fair discourse.

Pence For Governor?
It looks like Basil Turbyfill, one of Fletcher's cronies who was indicted thought Fletcher should resign to stop the investigation in the state merit hiring probe. The thing is, I think this might continue whether Fletcher was governor or not and this might just open up Pence for the probe too, not that he shouldn't be already.
The Herald Leader ran an AP feed for this one. I've included some excerpts:
FRANKFORT, Ky. - Gov. Ernie Fletcher has jeopardized Republican Party gains in Kentucky and should consider resigning in order to end the hiring scandal that has shaken his administration for the last six months, a former aide and veteran GOP leader said in an e-mail exchange.
Turbyfill told The Advocate-Messenger of Danville on Tuesday that he stood by his comments. He said he did not know how the e-mails became public but added that he likely forwarded them to state Republican Party leaders.
It looks like Ernie's goose is cooked. If the Democrats are lucky, they can drag this out and influence upcoming elections. The Republicans are in one term and they've managed to create more scandal in two years than the Democrats did in 30.
