Louisville news: Have Karen Sypher's new lawyers been taking hits from Aqua Buddha? edition [News]

  • "Less than two months after saying Americans 'got burned,' [on the $787 billion economic stimulus bill, U.S. Senator Mitch] McConnell sent letters to Transportation Secretary Ray LaHood, quietly seeking support for local projects — which he characterized as important initiatives — to be funded by the bill he attacked." [Courier-Journal]
  • "Former President Bill Clinton will campaign for Kentucky Democratic U.S. Senate nominee Jack Conway on the eve of the Nov. 2 election, a signal that national Democrats remain hopeful that Conway can beat Republican nominee Rand Paul." [Bluegrass Politics]
  • "The latest polls from Insight’s CN2 give…
    • Democratic incumbent Congressman John Yarmuth a 26-point lead over Republican challenger Todd Lally (57.9% to 31.4% with 2.6% undecided)
    • Democratic mayoral candidate Greg Fischer a 9-point lead over Republican candidate Hal Heiner (46.7% to 36.8% with 11.6% undecided)." [WFPL]
  • "The latest turn in the mayoral endorsement controversy comes from Metro Council President Tom Owen. Owen has told Democratic candidate Greg Fischer‘s campaign that Republican Hal Heiner promised former Democratic candidate Tyler Allen input on transportation issues in exchange for Allen’s endorsement." [WFPL]
  • "'I thank God that someone has come to my rescue.' So spoke Karen Cunagin Sypher, the wily femme fatale who was convicted earlier this year for extorting money from University of Louisville men’s basketball coach Rick Pitino. Sypher held a press conference today with her new legal counsel in a second floor conference room at downtown’s Hotel Louisville in which 'new evidence' was 'revealed,' ostensibly proving that she received an unfair trial at the hands of a corrupt U of L-backed judge and a corrupt court system bought and paid for by the financial backers of the KFC Yum! Center." [LEO Weekly]
