Fletcher Democrats

From On the Mark:

The Fletcher administration is now blocking state employees' access to the Republican Party of Kentucky's website, but the Democrats'. That's right, Fletcher's republican administration has blocked state computer access to www.rpk.org but not to the Kentucky democratic party's website www.kydemocrat.com.

A couple state employees managed to find the mistake and alert me today. Finance Cabinet spokeswoman Jill Midkiff says all political websites are supposed to be blocked and she's not sure why she can get access to the dems site, but not the repubs. Kentucky democratic party chairman Jerry Lundergan jokes that since his party ran state government for more than 30 years, their web site probably has more information about running state government than Fletcher's party web site.

The Fletcher administration placed filters on state government computers that block access to political sites. The administration says state employees have no need to view those sites on state time. One democratic blogger, Mark Nickolas, who runs BluegrassReport.org, has sued the administration claiming they've arbitrarily restricted the free speech rights of some internet sites by singling them out for blockage.
