Pee Alert! Ethics on parade!

This morning the Legislative Ethics Commission released their monthly report, detailing the latest Kentucky news in lobbying and ethics.

This little excerpt on the second page jumped out at us:

Local Website Fails on Ethics

A website called Page One recently published false statements about the members of the Legislative Ethics Commission. In the first false statement, a website poster claimed: “All but one member of the (Legislative Ethics) Commission have contacted me over the past several months to express outrage . . . “

In the second false statement, the poster claimed: “Now they’re freaking out via email because they’re experiencing tons of legislative pressure for daring express their thoughts privately.”

Contacted for this newsletter, eight members of the Commission said they’ve never had contact with the website poster, there’s been no “legislative pressure” on any issue, and they are unfamiliar with the website.

We here at LEO Weekly find these allegations — that Dr. Jacob Payne would exaggerate and make up facts in order to inflate his own importance — simply preposterous. We’ve never known him to do such a thing, otherwise he wouldn’t get millions of readers every week and be inundated with phone calls from every important person in Frankfort every day, currying favor with him.

Dr. Payne responded to these scurrilous charges with the dignity and restraint that he’s known for. Seriously, it’s worth a read, and we could all learn a lot from his elegant treatise.

This is why Kentucky can’t have nice things!

Tell ‘em, Bob.

    Leave Payne alone. Or you’ll make Your Weekly Transportation Lady cry.

    Its like you read my mind! You appear to know a
    lot about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.
    I think that you could do with a few pics to
    drive the message home a bit, but other than that, this is excellent blog.
    An excellent read. I will definitely be back.
