"If we define who we are, the middle class will vote Democratic again," - Julian Carroll (D)

Here's how Democrats like Julian Carroll are defined:

BACKGROUND ON JULIAN CARROLL

 

 

AT ISSUE: Julian Carroll is running around the state bragging about how ethical his administration was, criticizing other’s ethics and recruiting candidates to run against some of Kentucky’s most honest and proven republicans. Below are some writing topics and highlights of Julian’s catastrophic ethical failures which highlight the fact he is a liar.

Democrats should read the old teaching not to mix with the wrong crowd. Traveling and mixing with Julian shows their own ethics are severely lacking.

Julian ran one of the most corrupt administrations in America.

o 1975:

§ A western KY couple who owned a golf car distributorship received a state contract 11 days after contributing $5000 to Governor Carroll’s election.

§ From July 1974 to July 1975, Governor Carroll increased state employment by 10.5 percent or 2,598 employees. According to critics, this was an attempt to influence the pending election.

o 1976:

§ Governor Carroll’s brother-in-law received an “open-ended” job with the state tax-payer funded bicentennial group.

o 1977:

§ Governor Carroll’s brother-in-law purchased a Frankfort liquor license from one of Governor Carroll’s political supporters for $350 when the going rate was between $7500 and $10,000.

§ According to state Auditor George Atkins, Governor Carroll tried to secure a building contract for a supporter 5 months before the advertisement.

§ Governor Carroll was warned by South Central Bell Telephone that his taping of conversation between an unknown person and Rep Tim Lee Carter was illegal

o 1978:

§ According to state Auditor George Atkins, Governor Carroll illegally used the state air fleet for personal use costing tax-payers “tens of thousands of dollars.”

§ Grand jurors indicted a Carroll administration official for improperly transferring state cars to relatives of the State Democrat Chairman

§ Governor Carroll used state planes to attend out of state athletic events costing the University of Kentucky $14,040.

§ Governor Carroll used a state plane to vacation in Florida and the Bahamas at a cost of $10,000

· Governor Carroll’s lawyer used a state plane to deliver documents to the Governor while vacationing costing taxpayers $1,680.

o 1979:

§ United States Dept. of Justice approves a special grand-jury to investigate wrong-doing in Kentucky State Government

§ FBI begins probe into allegations Governor Carroll told a contributor his business future depended upon him making a $2500 contribution to the gubernatorial campaign.

§ Grand Jury begins probe into Governor Carroll’s children receiving payments from an Illinois firm owned by a Lexington Businessman.

· Governor Carroll’s financial disclosure did not list any investments these payments could be tied to.

· In 1982, one of Governor Carroll’s ex-aides testified that Governor Carroll requested she allow $500 checks for his children from the Illinois firm to be mailed to her home.

o 1982:

§ US Prosecuter John Fitzgibbons confirms Governor Carroll subject of investigation into Kentucky State Government wrong-doing.

o 1986:

§ Governor Carroll admits for the first time improprieties benfited he and his family

· The Governor was referring to payments to his children from an Illinois firm, a “zero” interest inventment in an Oklahoma oil well and his son’s employment with an engineering firm that did millions of dollars of business with the State.

"If I'm the nominee, Republicans will be sorry," said Biden, a Roman Catholic who ran for president in 1988. "The next Republican that tells me I'm not religious I'm going to shove my rosary beads down their throat."

The righteous heretic bit -- Tim Kaine is playing the part in Virginia, we'll see if it works.

U.S. Sen. Jim Bunning, a Republican who is a Campbell County resident, criticized Democrats for bringing Biden to the area. "Bringing in ultraliberal Joe Biden proves how desperate and out of touch the Democrat Party of Kentucky is with the values of real Kentuckians," he said in a statement provided by the Republican Party of Kentucky.

Truth trumps spin. Well said, Sen. Jim Bunning.

Sounds pretty Christian to me.

Hey Joe, Catholics aren't allowed to be pro-abortion. I didn't know followers of Moloch said the rosary...

Maybe Joe can borrow his beads from Uncle Ted,,might be a bit dusty...

I have it on good authority that Ted last saw his rosarys in July of 1969.I heard that the divers looked for them for hours but found nothing worth noting.

Now that Bill Bradley is no longer in the Senate, Joe Biden has inhereted his cloak as the dumbest man in the U.S. Senate.

About the only people Biden could connect with are morons like him, and those voters in Delaware who have sold their senses and votes for Senatorial favors from this nebish.

"In the last two (presidential elections), the Democratic Party has lost its base, the middle-class votes. ... And we have played into the hands of the Republicans. We've allowed so-called social issues to be so divisive."

And therein lies your problem Senator. Your base is now the moonbat left, and the gag reflex following your shoving your rosary beads down their throats is going to be a mess.

Does that include a couple of Cardinals in the church that support making politicians responsible to their faith...if they choose to claim it?

Anyone know the names of the Cardinals, I'm not up on Catholic politics?

He can shove them up his... for defending a party that considers abortion and homosexuality to be positive things rather than sin. He is trying to wear his religion on his sleeve, as Bill Clinton did carrying that thick bible to church during his trials.

Of course, that same Bill Clinton received oral sex after church one Sunday (Palm Sunday?) in an adulterous affair.

Medical insurance is not a right or moral issue. The moral decision comes from parents who pay their insurance premiums instead of cable bills or weekly tobacco fixes.

There is no charity in forced taxation.

It suggests that when Biden prays the Rosary, he's probably not doing much more than mouthing the words with no appreciation of their meaning or relevance.

Yes, they like to make melo-dramatic statements like that.
But Demo-friends-of-Parisites-&-moozlims should take care with idle threats. If "push comes to shove" FReepers are armed and our children thrive, despite the kulturesmog, while they kill their own off-spring.
It's still a free country: They can shove things down their own throats if they want.
