    Furloughs OK for others, but not Richie Farmer

    State officials share pain of furloughs, except for Richie Farmer


    Way to be a leader, Richie.

    I would not vote for him. At the gas pumps his name is bigger than anything on the stickers for gas. Like he has to be a big boy and get his name big.

    Richie will have some more issues to worry about now that his wife of 13 years has filed to end their marriage.

    Maybe he is saving his money to pay his divorce lawyers. Could give his wife some, according to the newspaper she has no access to his money.

    The Williams/Farmer ticket becomes a bigger circus on a daily basis. I know I'm enjoying the show!

    I hear you. Is Moffett a viable alternative? I don't know much about him. Can he raise enough money to truly contend? If Williams/Farmer is the Republican nominee, it is a slam dunk for Beshear in the fall IMO.

    Let me preface this by saying I have no intention of voting for Williams/Farmer BUT

    The title of this thread is a little misleading. Farmer didn't favor furloughs.

    I don't think many of the workers that were forced to take them agreed with doing so but they didn't have a choice. Dumb move Richie.

    I was commenting about the fact that most other elected leaders voluntarily give up their pay on those furlough days.

    Well at least that's one political answer from Richie Farmer, Richie Farmer doesn't believe in furloughs for state employees. Only 2,999,999 issues left to figure out where he stands.

    He doesn't believe in sharing with estranged wives.

    She was not estranged until he quit sharing is what I understand.

    Do you think Richie would have rather that the governor fire 413 people, so that we would then have 413 more people on unemployment? 6 days off is much better than laid off.
