  • "The Kentucky Tourism Development Finance Authority just unanimously approved up to $43 million in tax breaks for Ken Ham to build a giant boat with dinosaurs that a 600-year old man herded onto it, plus an estimated $11 million in tax payer money to build road improvements for it." [Barefoot and Progressive]
  • "Responding to the recent controversy surrounding gift card purchases made by city lawmakers, Louisville Metro Council President Jim King, D-10, has requested a formal opinion from the Jefferson County Attorney’s office to make sure those expenditures are legal. The request was made in a letter to County Attorney Mike O’Connell Thursday. King is asking for  an opinion on the legality of spending taxpayer dollars on food and drink used at public meetings, using city-funded debit cards for constituents to 'promote goodwill' and buying banquet tickets used by council members if the banquet is a public meeting."
