Is Steve Beshear Banking On A Cover-Up?

Don't hold your breath waiting for the investigative report on Steve Beshear's law firm's actions to appear, despite the motion filed today by the Lexington Herald-Leader "to allow the Cincinnati law firm Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur to release" the report.

With all the hulaballoo about that report since yesterday, the attorney who said yesterday he "may still have one of the reports but that it could only be released with the permission of a court," Mark Elsener, just told me he still doesn't have it.

"I haven't searched for it," he said.

A hearing to force the firm to turn over the report should take place the week of September 24.

That's a lot of time for a file folder full of paper to disappear.
