OL' King Koal was a black hearted soul & a murdering soul
Edited on Wed Jul-28-10 07:35 AM by era veteran
was he.Coal execs hope to spend big to defeat Conway and Chandler
Companies seek to pool funds to defeat chandler, Conway, and delay disclosure so they won't have to publicly disclose their activities such as advertising until they file a tax return next year, long after the Nov. 2 election.Nicholson listed three races "of interest": Conway against Republican Rand Paul for Kentucky's open Senate seat; Chandler against Republican Garland "Andy" Barr in Kentucky's 6th House District; and Democratic U.S. Rep. Nick Rahall against Republican Elliott "Spike" Maynard in West Virginia's 3rd House District.
Several of those companies have been involved in recent mine disasters that led to congressional scrutiny of their safety problems. International Coal Group owns the Sago mine in West Virginia where 12 miners died in 2006. Massey owns the Upper Big Branch mine, also in West Virginia, where 29 miners died in April. Two miners died in April in a Western Kentucky mine owned by an Alliance Resource subsidiary.
"Between them, ICG and Massey have had 41 miners killed in just two disasters
Maynard, is a former state Supreme Court chief justice who gained national attention because of his friendship with Massey Energy chief executive Don Blankenship.
Maynard and Blankenship were photographed vacationing together on the French Riviera in 2006. Months later, Maynard cast the court's deciding vote to overturn a $50 million jury verdict against Massey.

VACATIONING TOGETHER ON THE FRENCH RIVIERA!!! Pooling their enormous blood money in a 527 to subvert the Constitution under the auspices of the Robert's rubber stamp, I mean court. Raping and pillaging the throw-away part of the USA. Every fish in every Kentucky lake is already polluted with mercury. Corporate asshats walking hand and hand together to keep fucking over the people. If you live here and see one of those " Friends of Coal" stickers on a car ( usually an SUV ) give them the middle finger salute. FUCK COAL
Thanks from Lexington, people, Peace Richard
