Let me see if I got this straight...Bruce Lunsford and Ed Hart are pissed at Louisville Mayor Greg Fischer over $10,000 the two helped wrangle up to sponsor a table at the Mayor's inauguration. Lunsford and Hart both contributed $2,000 personally to the total, but were angered after the Louisville Courier-Journal revealed that Fischer had used the money to repay a personal loan to his campaign.
What a crock of shit. Lunsford, who has dabbled in politics for years, at one point serving as Kentucky Secretary of Commerce, should damn well know how the game is played. Hart, who was negotiating with the city to help him out with the reopening of his Kentucky Kingdom theme park, appears to just be pissy over not getting his money's worth when it came to (apparently, imho) trying to buy influence.
Bottom line: the two are mad that they gave a politician money, and then he didn't do what they expected him to do with it. Seriously? That's like leaving a hooker in the front seat with the engine running, then acting surprised when you come back outside to an empty parking space. Maybe someone could give them a dictionary or steer them to Dictionary.com and point out the word donation. And then maybe sour grapes, or perhaps more to the point, the word dumbass.
