I for one am sick and tired of the charge levied against anyone who did not like Kentucky Justice that they are a criminal or a lowlife. With all due respect. Some of it was alright and some of it downright stunk. I blame the producers of the show more than anything but that's my opinion on the show. Did Kentucky Justice change enough minds to influence the election? Maybe, but I doubt it. I think most people who voted the way they did had their minds made up a long time back. Time changes things and in early 2009 I would have said ( and I did) that Marvin would have that job twenty years or more or till he didn't want it anymore. That didn't happen, but Marvin, in my opinion, responded with class, and how you lose says as much about you as how you win. I think the vote buying crying and whining and the rants on FB that Harlan will go back to the Dark Ages are a bunch of sour grapes from some disheartened supporters. For the record I didn't vote for Smith or Lipfird, but then again, I am a Republican.
Are you saying there was no vote buying going on?
I don't know if there was or not. I can honestly say I've NEVER been approached to sell my vote or have I ever seen it happen. I know it has existed in the past and if you follow the precinct by precinct totals I do see one district where it is more of a possibility than others. Unless I actually witnessed it then I'm not prepared to say for certain it went on. I will reiterate that the majority of the whining is sour grapes from some supporters, all the candidates have been classy in both victory and defeat save one who made a rather classless remark in one race after winning. I have to say that is a testament to all the candidates for how they have behaved no matter how their elections have came out.
