Lunsford Staffer Defects, Joins Hensley Campaign

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - A staffer on Louisville millionaire Bruce Lunsford's gubernatorial campaign has defected. Political consultant Jason Shemanski has taken a position with Lunsford rival Otis Hensley.

Shemanski had agreed to join the Lunsford campaign as a field coordinator but resigned shortly after arriving in Kentucky.Shemanski cites philosophical differences with the candidate.

Shemanski is a former member of the International Association of Machinists. he says he realized that Lunsford wasn't the strong pro-labor candidate he had hoped for. So he gave up the 25-hundred dollar-a-month job last week and joined Hensley as an unpaid campaign manager.
