Save money by axing Kentucky Treasurer

One funny part of Pat Crowley's recent profile of state Sen. Damon Thayer suggests Thayer may run for Treasurer in 2011.

Sen. Thayer is not going to run for the do-nothing Treasurer's office. He filed the bill in 2008 to shut down the office to save money.

Thayer's no-nonsense style might be an interesting fit for an Auditor's office traditionally misused as a political weapon, though.
