OK, I give. These guys don’t have a clue about public perception.
Surely, Steve Beshear has a friend, or a friend of a friend, who owns a private plane and would like to spend some quality time with the Governor.
From Mark Hebert:
During his campaign for governor, Steve Beshear said he wouldn't fly to campaign stops in the state airplane. That statement came as Gov. Fletcher was being lambasted for using the state plane for the dual purpose of attending political fundraisers and official functions on the same trip.
Well. on Monday Beshear used the state airplane to make three stops in west Kentucky, two of which could be construed as political stops.......
Vicki Glass says the governor will make a "reasonable" reimbursement to the state based on todays "official and political" activities.
Why not just avoid the problem, don't take the plane to political events.
