Fletcher’s Minimalism

From NKY Politics:

Gov. Ernie Fletcher has reimbursed the state for campaign trips he made on a state-owned plane. Here is the campaign's statement. Today the Fletcher Campaign announced that a check is being issued to the Commonwealth of Kentucky to pay for a pro-rated share of the Governor’s campaign travel. This action is not required by Kentucky law. The campaign is going above and beyond its legal obligations.

Campaign Manager Marty Ryall said today, "We have authorized a check in the amount of $18,840.46 to be issued from the campaign to the Commonwealth of Kentucky. This covers a pro-rated share of the Governor’s travel when political events were included in the itinerary." Ryall said, "This covers all of the Governor’s travel from July of 2006 through April of 2007.”

Anyone notice, Governor Fletcher only reacts? The Lexington Herald-Leader reprimands him. He reimburses travel expenses. Fletcher never acts sans prompting. Once again, this was the least he could do.
