Kentucky Democratic Party invites you to “Crazy David’s Fire Sale

The Kentucky Democratic Party is having some fun at the expense of Senate President David Williams.

The Kentucky Democratic Party is having some fun at the expense of Senate President David Williams.

The KDP unleashed an attack on the Republican candidate for Governor just before sunrise.  An email blast to supporters refers to what it calls the “Crazy David’s Fire Sale.”

State Democratic Party Chairman Dan Logsdon accuses Williams of excessive spending to remodel his office a couple of years ago.

The renovations included a 60-inch plasma t-v that Williams has now moved to the Senate chambers to display votes cast by lawmakers on bills.  Williams has since purchased a new t-v out of his own pocket.

The Courier-Journal reported in 2008 that the Legislative Research Commission spent $639,000 to renovate and expand the offices of eleven Republican Senators in the Capitol Annex.  The work in Williams’ office was part of that project.

 

The KDP flyer asks the question, “Got a quarter century’s worth of taxpayer funded goodies that are dragging down your conservative cred?” 

Logsdon closes the email by saying, “Well, we wish the best of luck to David with his attempts to get rid of the evidence of his excess. We even decided to give him a hand by putting together an ad that might help him get rid of some of his bigger ticket items.”

Buyer beware, I guess.

Williams’ camp says he has stood against excessive spending and tax increases for years.

 

The flyer comes on the same day the Democratic Party asked its members to sign a pledge against negative attacks in the fall. 

Governor Steve Beshear is unopposed in the Democratic Primary.

David Williams and Richie Farmer face two Republican Challengers, Phil Moffett and Mike Harmon  and Bobbie Holsclaw and Bill Vermillion in the Republican Primary.

Here is a copy of the email from the Kentucky Democratic Party.

Dear Fellow Democrat,

Republican Senate President David Williams is the kind of guy who knows how to appreciate the good things in life.  A couple of years ago, he decided his office didn't suit a man of his stature and he'd spruce up his surroundings a little.  Actually, let me clarify that - he decided to spruce up his surrounding A LOT.

Williams spent $639,000 of taxpayer funds to give his office an upgrade including new furniture, some beautiful new cherry wood paneling and, if you can believe it, a $17,000 flat screen TV.  You read that right, $17,000 for a flat screen TV. I don't know anyone who wouldn't call that excessive and that $17,000 marvel of modern technology was seen by a lot of folks as a potent symbol of Williams’ excesses.

Now David is taking his show on the road to convince Kentucky voters he's the kind of man we can trust to watch over our state's resources and he's working like crazy to make that TV go away. Yesterday he announced he is moving it to the State Senate chambers, where he intended to put it all along. (I know, I know - I don't buy it either!)  He even said he bought a new TV for his office down at Office Deport and paid for it with his very own money. Well, good for him - of course the most expensive TV that Office Depot sells is about $9,000 less than the one he bought with your money. Maybe we’ll just chalk that up to it being a buyer’s market and all.

Well, we wish the best of luck to David with his attempts to get rid of the evidence of his excess. We even decided to give him a hand by putting together an ad that might help him get rid of some of his bigger ticket items.
