Another episode of "Where's The Outrage?"

Jumping out of the headlines over the holiday weekend was a blurb that Gov. Beshear appointed 10 Democrats and one solitary Republican to various boards of regents and trustees of Kentucky's public universities.

We are reminded that when former Attorney General Greg Stumbo thought former Gov. Ernie Fletcher had appointed too many Republicans to state university boards, in alleged violation of a law requiring the political affiliations of board appointees to reflect the voter registration makeup in the state, Stumbo launched one of his patented political witch hunts against the Fletcher administration.

Now, 10-1 does not come anywhere close to approximating the 65-35 breakdown of registered Democrats to Republicans in Kentucky. So we're left to wonder, where is current Attorney General Little Jackie Conway's outrage at Beshear's appointments? Why isn't Conway trying to force Beshear to comply with the law? Where's the outrage?
