(Ky. Gov.) Fletcher's office fights Courier-Journal's request for e-mails

Fletcher's office filed suit Friday in Franklin Circuit Court against The Courier-Journal and staff writer Tom Loftus, asking for a ruling that the e-mails are exempt from release under various exceptions to the Kentucky Open Records Act.

The lawsuit also asks that the court rule that release of the e-mails would be "a violation of the separation of powers mandated by the Kentucky Constitution."

In its lawsuit, the governor's office said the e-mails fall under one or more exceptions to the law that allow withholding certain correspondence with private individuals; preliminary records in which opinions are expressed or policies formulated; communications with lawyers regarding legal advice; and records which, if released, would constitute an unwarranted invasion of privacy.


But the governor's office refused, prompting the attorney general to rule that the e-mails must be released publicly.

Sen. Frist
Rep. DeLay
Ohio Gov. Taft
Ky. Gov. Fletcher

Wow...what a party of morals and ethics!!

Fletcher puts political consultant on state payroll

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) -- Gov. Ernie Fletcher has put his New Jersey political consultant on the state payroll, according to a spokeswoman.

Brett Hall, who was first hired by Fletcher's re-election campaign, has been consulting with Fletcher on boosting his public image. Fletcher's campaign has also hired a Texas consultant, Bill Kenyon.

Now, Hall will be working for the state, spokeswoman Jodi Whitaker said.

Whitaker said she didn't know how to answer the question of whether Hall had an office at the Capitol.

Meeting is sought on GOP chairman
Inaction on Brock irks precinct leader

FRANKFORT, Ky. -- A Republican precinct captain in Jefferson County is pushing a grass-roots move in the party to reconsider whether Darrell Brock should remain as state chairman.

But Brock said yesterday that he has no interest in taking up the issue again.

Gov. Ernie Fletcher called for Brock's ouster earlier this month when he fired nine administration officials, citing poor judgment involving the state hiring system.

But at a meeting three days later, the state Republican Party's Executive Committee declined to move against Brock.
