Jody Richards’ motto must be “Which way are they going, so I can get in front of them and lead.”
Until there was a surge, not in the Bush sense, of opposition to HB 184 Richards was all in favor of letting Harry Moberly have his way with the legislative process.
When Jonathan Miller came out against it, and even Stan Lee and Kathy Stein agreed it was a bad bill Jody suddenly now has “grave reservations”.
Usually Lee and Stein can’t agree on where the sun comes up in the morning, "If Kathy and I agree on something, it must really be a bad piece of legislation," Lee said.
This is pretty much the level of leadership Richards has demonstrated in the legislature and what you could expect from a Richards administration if he is elected governor.
From the Courier-Journal:
FRANKFORT, Ky. -- House Speaker Jody Richards has "grave reservations" about a bill that would make clear that the General Assembly has the power to pass and repeal state laws within the budget bill, his office spokeswoman said yesterday.
