Crit Luallen's new PR firm

Being avid consumers of news, we've noticed something recently.

Each time state Auditor of Public Accounts Crit Luallen releases an audit critical of some aspect of state government (particularly anything relating to the Fletcher administration) it merits huge headlines and a treasure trove of column inches in the Lexington Herald-Leader.

There are other, bigger stories out there that the H-L could be covering, but they're passing them up in order to give Luallen plenty of earned media.

It makes us wonder: For what purpose is the Herald-Leader pimping Luallen? (And yes, we use that term intentionally.) Why are they so interested in promoting her and what she's doing? Why not tout, instead, something that another official is doing -- perhaps some of Trey Grayson's civic education or presidential primary reform initiatives?

Comments, speculation and idle gossip welcome.
