Kentucky Blog Exposes Fletcher Lies

No surprise here: Kentucky Governor Ernie Fletcher, who has already joined the ranks of indicted Republicans, has been tricked into exposing himself as a liar.

For out-of-towners, here’s the recap: Gov. Fletcher was indicted for conspiracy and misconduct charges (for being what Republicans call “loyal”). Eleven others in his administration were also indicted. He pardoned nine (a move chess players call "The George H.W. Bush gambit"). In fact, he tried to issue some kind of “blanket” pardon to cover everyone whether they were named or not.
