Oops! Pension system isn't transparent

Attorney General Jack Conway recently claimed that Kentucky Retirement Systems violated the Kentucky Open Records Act when it refused to release records pertaining to its payroll.

The reason given: the request was "unduly burdensome".

Yikes.  Is it too burdensome to know how taxpayer dollars are being spent? Surely not.

The Kentucky Open Records Act is a great tool but stories like this show that we have a long way to go before we have true transparency in Kentucky.

Oops! The folks in Frankfort tell so many half truths that they don't know what is true anymore. They need to quit saying anything about being transparent and just tell it like it is:

'We'll do anything we please, say anything we want, and screw you every chance we get'!

That pretty much summarizes the ethics and values of the politicians in Frankfort.
