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.

Governor Fletcher has nobly launched his own internal investigation into the hiring practices of previous governors, primarily Governor Paul Patton. This is to demonstrate the hiring practices undertaken by his administration we're done frequently in the past. I think Fletcher continues to miss the point here. While I hate to see a grown man cry (I thought Patton was weak when he cried), it may be time to start.
Mark Chellgren, writing for the Associated Press said:
FRANKFORT, Ky. - Evidence of political influence in hiring in previous administrations discredits the special grand jury investigation that has produced 82 indictments of 13 officials in his own administration, Gov. Ernie Fletcher said Monday.
The problem the governor doesn't get is he got caught. It doesn't matter if it should've been against the law, it was against the law. This is going to go on longer too. If the Republicans want to get gain some ground in 2006, they're going to have to find a way to jettison Fletcher.
