5. End Corruption in Washington & Kentucky
Corruption can cripple a state or a country. When corruption is rampant, businesses decide to locate elsewhere, people are less motivated to work hard, and criminal types gradually take over the government.
According to the web site UnbiasedKyCoverage.com, "A new study by Harvard University’s Center for Ethics finds that Kentucky’s state government is among the most corrupt in the country, and second to none when it comes to the “legal corruption” of political favors in exchange for campaign contributions.
Whereas the most common measure of corruption uses only federal convictions, the Harvard study measures corruption based on the perceptions of experts, surveying hundreds of news and investigative reporters covering state politics. The reporters ranked the existence of both illegal and "legal" corruption in the executive, legislative and judicial branches on a scale of 1 to 5, from not common at all to extremely common.
Kentucky was one of only two states to receive the highest ranking of 5 for "legal" corruption in both the executive and legislative branches, in addition to being near the top for the judicial branch with a ranking of 3 for such corruption being moderately common."
I will go after corruption regardless of partisan politics.
Although I'm not a lawyer, I have been uncovering massive corruption in the Kentucky Democratic Party (KDP) since February, 2015, when the KDP allegedly rigged and stole the primary for Governor by hosting a "Unity Press Conference" in Frankfort and inviting only the Establishment's favored candidate, Jack Conway (D). I was Conway's only Democratic opponent. The KDP's defense ever since has been that they don't have to obey their own bylaws, that they have the legal right to decide who their nominee will be (regardless of the desires of Kentucky's 1.7 million registered Democrats), that they may never be accused of election fraud, that no court in America can stop them, and that they are essentially above the law. In 2020, I ran as a Republican against Andy Barr in their primary, and I discovered that the RPK rigs its own primaries in exactly the same way. If I can clean up corruption in Kentucky, I can do it in Washington DC.
In December 2021 I filed a petition for certiorari in the U.S. Supreme Court against Andy Barr, and I'm working on a few more.
