C-J and the Gadfly vs. Katie King

A nice piece from the C-J editorialists on the on-going Katie King saga...

The only odd thing: who is the "perennial gadfly candidate" who raised the issue-- and why not give credit where credit is due. Sounds like the way they might describe a Libertarian, but I'm not sure...Does anyone know?

When asked by a reporter in December where she came up with $194,000 to finance her expensive, scandal-ridden campaign for Jefferson District Court judge, Katie King said, "It came from personal accounts."

Beyond that neither she, nor her banker father, nor her lawyer would say anything.

As it turns out, the money in at least some of those "personal accounts" came from an 11th-hour, $209,000 mortgage from her father's bank.

A complaint filed with the Registry of Election Finance by a gadfly perennial candidate alleges that the loan was worth far more than Judge King's home and was more than her $41,465 salary as a prosecutor would justify....

I've been told by a friend that the "gadfly" is Ed Springston.
