Some Emails Are Cool

Dear Friend,

The voice of the people was heard loud and clear last Tuesday.

142,735 Kentuckians voted to put Kentucky First again.

Then, just 48-hours after the primary, all five other Democratic tickets for Governor stood up, together, and endorsed Steve and Daniel.

The Democratic Party and Kentuckians across the state have never been more unified in their call for change in Frankfort.

Late last week, we received news on just how deep this desire for change has become.

A poll, conducted by SurveyUSA on Wednesday and Thursday of last week, showed Steve Beshear and Daniel Mongiardo leading the race by 28-points!

The Poll includes this breakdown of the votes:

All Voters
62% Beshear
34% Fletcher
4% Undecided

Oh and at the GOP unity rally over the weekend, after failing to take out his own handpicked model of corruption to be governor, The Corrupt Mr. Fletcher, with another handpicked loser, Anne Northup, McConnell had this to say about Fletcher. “I've never met a finer man than our governor, Ernie Fletcher,” and then this gem “I’m proud of Ernie Fletcher. I'm proud of Glenna Fletcher. And I’m proud of the image they present for our state.”

Would this be that image?

Fletcher Charged With Three Misdemeanor Charges in 2006, Forced to Admit Wrongdoing in His Administration. Last year, Ernie Fletcher was indicted on three misdemeanor charges for allegedly doling out state jobs to political supporters. The indictments came after Fletcher took the Fifth Amendment and declined to answer questions before a grand jury. In August, Fletcher admitted to wrongdoing in his administration as part of an agreement to drop the charges, but a grand jury report released later said that Fletcher oversaw a "widespread and coordinated plan" to avoid state hiring laws.

Fletcher Pardoned Every Member of His Administration Involved in Hiring Scheme. In August 2005, Fletcher issued a blanket pardon covering all the members of his administration who were tangled up in the hiring scandal, although he didn’t pardon himself. The grand jury indicted 14 people along with Fletcher, and they returned 14 additional sealed indictments in 2006.

In any case, here's a video of the endorsement, for you visual types:
