The KDP sent an email out today highlighting David Williams’ television-gate.
Here’s a preview of the flyer…
And here’s the text of the email and the link to view the PDF (warning: PDF… which on my computer has to be blown up to 300% to become readable) for “CRAZY DAVID’S FIRE SALE”:
Dear Fellow Democrat,
Republican Senate President David Williams is the kind of guy who knows how to appreciate the good things in life. A couple of years ago, he decided his office didn’t suit a man of his stature and he’d spruce up his surroundings a little. Actually, let me clarify that – he decided to spruce up his surrounding A LOT.
Williams spent $639,000 of taxpayer funds to give his office an upgrade including new furniture, some beautiful new cherry wood paneling and, if you can believe it, a $17,000 flat screen TV. You read that right, $17,000 for a flat screen TV. I don’t know anyone who wouldn’t call that excessive and that $17,000 marvel of modern technology was seen by a lot of folks as a potent symbol of Williams’ excesses.
Now David is taking his show on the road to convince Kentucky voters he’s the kind of man we can trust to watch over our state’s resources and he’s working like crazy to make that TV go away. Yesterday he announced he is moving it to the State Senate chambers, where he intended to put it all along. (I know, I know – I don’t buy it either!) He even said he bought a new TV for his office down at Office Deport and paid for it with his very own money. Well, good for him – of course the most expensive TV that Office Depot sells is about $9,000 less than the one he bought with your money. Maybe we’ll just chalk that up to it being a buyer’s market and all.
Well, we wish the best of luck to David with his attempts to get rid of the evidence of his excess. We even decided to give him a hand by putting together an ad that might help him get rid of some of his bigger ticket items.
