How can anyone not see this as a blatant attempt at pandering for votes?
FRANKFORT, Ky.—Gov. Ernie Fletcher plans to put the Ten Commandments and other historical documents in the Capitol on the day before Kentucky’s general election.
The action comes on the heels of a ruling by U.S. District Judge Joseph M. Hood that a previous injunction in a separate court case doesn’t apply to the display Fletcher wants placed in the Capitol Rotunda.
Fletcher attorney David Fleenor said the governor would issue an executive order Monday directing that the Ten Commandments be displayed alongside other historical documents including the Magna Carta, Mayflower Compact and the Declaration of Independence.
Voters will choose Tuesday between the incumbent Republican and his Democratic challenger Steve Beshear, who polls show commands a double-digit lead in the gubernatorial race.
It’ll be truly a sad day if this is all it takes to keep this asshat in office.
