Alison Lundergan Grimes witnessed key ObamaCare crime

Kentucky Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes' plans to run for U.S. Senate now pretty much require her to avoid any controversial policy positions. Those plans may need another look after she attested to Gov. Beshear's illegal ObamaCare executive order last Wednesday in her office.

Creation of the Kentucky Health Benefit Exchange subjects Kentuckians to billions of dollars in unnecessary taxes, fees and regulatory expenses for no real benefit. While Gov. Beshear may not like that description of his handiwork and may not even agree with it, as a lame duck governor he doesn't really have to care beyond the embarrassment of losing court battles.

But Candidate Grimes has to care a lot. It isn't illegal for a Kentucky Secretary of State to accept a bogus document like this, but as a would-be Senator, she should be expected to talk about it every time she, uh, raises her head. 

Kentucky's pro-ObamaCare contingent has been eerily quiet about the legal fate of their grand plans. Will their new fearless leader now come to their defense?
