A quick thought on the Fletcher-Stumbo settlement

Now that this case is officially over, Greg Stumbo is free of any ethical constraints precluding a run for governor.

(Not that Greg Stumbo ever had any ethics, personally or professionally, to begin with, but that is a whole 'nother story).

Anyone want to guess how long it'll be before he is unofficially on the stump? He's already floated a trial balloon on casino gambling that was strangely out of place for someone planning to run for re-election as attorney general.

Let's hope he does run. It'll be interesting to see how his background as a philanderer, deadbeat dad and drunken driver will play with the voters now that the political motivation behind his persecution/prosecution of Ernie Fletcher is exposed.

Stumbo once said he didn't plan to run for governor unless Fletcher became politically damaged. Well, Stumbo inflicted the damage, giving us the classic example of a self-fulling prophecy. Now let's see how Stumbo's past, meshed with his blatant political posturing, will play with the voters.

The guess here is not very well. And it couldn't happen to a more deserving scumbag.
