  • "During his last term as mayor of Louisville, Democratic lieutenant governor candidate Jerry Abramson spent over $180,000 from an unchecked discretionary fund with little to no documentation. The expenditures have raised more serious questions about the lack of transparency and poor oversight in city spending. While many procurements appear innocuous and well-intentioned, such as a $10,000 donation to the American Red Cross, eyebrows go up with other purchases including: $3,400 at an upscale steakhouse in Washington, D.C. for 'Louisville business leaders;' $10,000 for  four different Derby Day brunches to honor state legislators; and another $2,378 to the Baltimore-based Cordish Cos., developer of Fourth Street Live, for a football game celebration."
