Gov. Ernie Fletcher (KY) -- Another Republican Slimeball

In a fit of pique over an investigation into improper hiring initiated by the Democrat attorney general, this Republican shit-for-brains pardoned not only those already charged, but anyone who is eventually charged by the grand jury. And, as if that weren't enough, the pardon extends to any and all alleged criminal activity, not just charges stemming from the existing investigation. So...a former Fletcher administration official who's been indicted on 22 unrelated felony counts of evidence and witness tampering...gets a buy.

Such respect for the judicial system from the conservatives--dare to investigate me, and I'll simply make it impossible for any prosecutions to proceed. Sort of reminds you of Nixon firing special prosecutor Archibald Cox.

Once again Republican hubris knows no bounds.
