Kentucky, Politics, and the Courts

Well, the decision I talked about Friday came in.

Basically, the judge punted and came down with what might be the worst of all possible rulings. The case cannot go forward because a governor cannot be prosecuted while in office unless first impeached. However, the indictments aren't dismissed, they are merely held in abeyance until the governor is out of office.

So now anybody can indict a Kentucky governor at any time and the indictment will sit and wait for him to finish his term in office.
