Wonder If This'll Make The Network Evening News Tomorrow?
July 11,2005 | FRANKFORT, Ky. -- A grand jury indicted Kentucky's Republican Party chairman and two state officials Monday on charges alleging they conspired to violate state personnel laws. The allegations revolve around the state's Merit System jobs and whether a few Republican officials conspired to hire and fire employees based on their political views. Merit System rules prohibit such actions. All three men indicted Monday have close ties to Gov. Ernie Fletcher. Basil Turbyfill is in charge of filling political positions for Fletcher, and Bob Wilson is part of the governor's Personnel Cabinet. GOP Chairman Darrell Brock was director of local government in Fletcher's office before he took the party job this year.Of course, if these were Democrats we were talking about, the national airwaves would be ringing with the news. (Cynical? Moi?)
