In 2007 while many of us were working very hard to defeat Senator Mitch McConnell in his upcoming 2008 re-election bid. Daniel Logsdon the current Chairman and Executive Director of the Kentucky Democratic Party was, according to Bluegrass Politics, handing out money to Republicans. $1,000 to Republican Governor Ernie Fletcher, $250 to Republican Agriculture Commissioner Richie Farmer and let's not forget the $500, according to Bluegrass Politics, in September 2005 to McConnell’s re-election committee.
So here we are again in 2013 working hard to defeat Senator Mitch McConnell in 2014 with Daniel Logsdon at the helm of the Kentucky Democratic Party. I believe the Kentucky Democratic U.S. Senatorial candidates deserve better and so do all of Kentucky's Democratic Congressional candidates.
It appears, at this point, that Alison Lundergan Grimes will emerge as the Democratic challenger to Senator Mitch McConnell and she will need every tool in in the tool box, including unwavering support from the Kentucky Democratic Party leadership to defeat Senator Mitch McConnell. It's my opinion that Daniel Logsdon, the current Chairman And Executive Director of the Kentucky Democratic Party is not the best person to help Alison Lundergan Grimes defeat Senator Mitch McConnell. Why? Because I still remember Daniel Logsdon placing his, what I consider, bets (money) on Republicans, including Senator Mitch McConnell!
If you're a die hard Kentucky Democrat that follows the Democratic Party line without asking questions, then you may want to stop reading this post and visit a site that's willing to tow the Democratic Party line even when the Democratic Party line is more Republican than it is Democratic.
For a long time now we have had a problem in Kentucky. While our state has a wide majority of Democrats, we have several Congressional seats that remain Republican, have two Republican Senators, and vote on a national level in Presidential elections Republican. Now it appears as if we will have a leader of our state party who donated to the two worst Republicans of all, disgraced former Governor Ernie Fletcher and the Darth Vader of Kentucky politics, Mitch McConnell. To me, this shows the weakness of our party as a whole. There are too many apologists for the Corporate Republican ideology within our state and national party and the best thing they can do is leave our party, not lead it.
