Another top Kentucky GOPer indicted


You gotta be kidding me!!!

This is the party that thinks it has a divine right to take the Kentucky House this November, and now they've been enveloped by yet another major scandal. Clay County Judge-Executive Joe Asher - a Republican - has just been arrested and indicted for crimes including bribery and possession of a forged instrument. The indictment comes from allegations that Asher and a local road foreman used public money to do personal work at homes and billed the homeowners for it - constituting bribery.

Naturally, media accounts of this indictment conveniently omit Asher's party affiliation.
