Lexington's Own Abu Ghraib Scandal

The Lexington Herald Leader is picking up on the Jim Newberry/Teresa Isaac cover-up at the Fayette County jail story tomorrow.

The really amazing thing about this story is that Jim Newberry knew about Isaac's cover-up before his election. Seems like it would have been pretty easy for him to separate himself from the mess before he took office, but instead he jumped right into the middle of it. Now he is being sued for abusing his position as mayor and will probably be prosecuted as well.

I thought this guy was supposed to be smart.
