Demo-blog Trashes Lunsford

Bluegrass Roots, one of the Demo-blogs that hasn't stopped sobbing since Andrew Horne withdrew from the Democratic primary for U.S. Senate, made one last pitch to defeat Bruce Lunsford.

Referring to Lunsford's two failed bids for state-wide office, BGR recalls that Democrats:

remembered tossing their cookies the last two times they sampled the Lunsford confections, always well-packaged but invariably rotten....

The link goes to a Fischer website about Lunsford's "luggage." Some of the quotes about Lunsford's Vencor debacle come from such startling sources as a 1999 term paper from the University of Pittsburgh. The paper is authored by four grad students, "ROCCO BOTTICELLI, RYAN PUCEVICH, JUSTINE SCRIPTUNAS, JOEL THURSTON"

Some of the other sources are more credible, like the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit:

We conclude that plaintiffs here have stated a claim for securities fraud by creating--in the words of the statute--a 'strong inference' that defendants projected financial well-being at a time when they had actual knowledge that their statements were false or misleading, while knowingly omitting material facts that would have tempered their optimism.

We can't wait to see if the demo-blogs will rally around Lunsford after he wins tonight.
