Hmm. That Would Be Illegal...

This excerpt from a Lexington Herald Leader article on July 16, 2006 was just brought to my attention:
Early in 2002, Kentucky's political universe began realigning in preparation for the '03 governor's race. That was when U.S. Sen. Mitch McConnell brought Fletcher into his Senate hideaway office in the U.S. Capitol and, as McConnell later told the Courier-Journal, formally asked Fletcher to consider running. The request signalled not only the senator's support but also access to his statewide fund-raising and political operation.
And yes, a Senator is not allowed to use his taxpayer-funded office in the Capitol to plan a political campaign.

It'll be interesting to see how far and how fast McConnell runs away from Fletcher this year.
