Greg, the C-J editorialists didn't interview me either... they prefer warmongers who give lip service to the working poor
From Greg Knott's letter to the C-J-- as an unendorsed candidates...
Why did The Courier-Journal not interview me before endorsing the corrupt incumbent who, like President Richard Nixon, has lost the public's trust?
Unlike the incumbent, I have not accepted tens of thousands of dollars in lobbying fees in return for $625,000 in taxpayer-funded earmarks. In fact, I am the only candidate in this race who has signed the pledge at fightwashingtoncorruption.com. The pledge includes co-sponsoring the Lobbying Reform Act which will make it illegal for any congressmen or their staffs to work for a lobbying firm without a five-year waiting period, and vice-versa.
The C-J editorialists didn't interview me in 2008 either. Apparently, talking to an economist for an hour would not have been helpful to them. Given their tin ear, it probably would have been a waste of my time too.
In this race-- and the races in which I ran-- the C-J preferred a warmonger candidate who gives lip service (and bad policies) to the working poor and middle class. Sadly, that's what often passes for a "proud liberal" these days.
