Who's covering up the dirt on Kentucky Democrat Jack Conway?

Democrats practically invented dirty politics. They wrote the book on how to steal votes by hand counting ballots. Even the liberal NY Times is writing about the fake Tea Party candidates the Democrats are funding to drain votes from their Republican competition. Here in Kentucky, bluegrass Democrats are no different from their Eastern Liberal Establishment relatives.

Amanda Van Benshoten is a political reporter with the Cincinnati/Kentucky Enquirer newspaper. She was also one of the three panelists who questioned Democrat U.S. Senate candidate and Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway and Republican U.S. Senate candidate Dr. Rand Paul  at their third televised debate. Ms Van Benshoten has written another story in the Enquirer today that seems to have its only purpose but to keep alive the rumor about Rand Paul’s college pranks regarding Aqua Buddha. I won’t mention the ugly details but I will quote Ms Van Benshoten’s opening line from her story:
“It's been called "repulsive," "dangerous," "desperate" and "the ugliest political ad of the year" - but did it work?”
Yes, Amanda you are right to call it "repulsive," "dangerous," "desperate" and "the ugliest political ad of the year". It is typical Democrat politics.

But I wonder how much press coverage you and your newspaper and the news media in general will give to a story of far more serious consequences about the Democrat candidate, Jack Conway? This has just been reported on the web site Red State.
Is Jack Conway Involved In an Investigation About His Brother?

Jack Conway is the Attorney General of the Commonwealth of Kentucky.

Jack Conway’s brother, Matt, was a prosecuting attorney for Jefferson County, Kentucky.

Matt has been under investigation for possible drug use or drug trafficking.

Louisville, KY narcotics detectives tipped off Matt Conway twice that he was under investigation.

The investigation has been compromised. Matt Conway and the two detectives who tipped him off have all given misleading and/or false statements — Matt Conway doing so under oath.

There is a lingering question about what Matt Conway’s brother, the Attorney General for the Commonwealth of Kentucky, knew — if anything. Jack Conway says that when he learned of the investigation he told his brother to get legal advice.

There remain questions, though, as to the full extent of Jack Conway’s knowledge and what he did or did not do and if the leaking detectives were seeking to curry favor with people higher up.

In other words, while Jack Conway is running scurrilous ads about Rand Paul’s religion, there are legitimate questions about whether he tried to use his office or connections to help his brother beat a drug trafficking investigation against him.
Let's see how impartial the news media can get with this one. With all due respect it should be noted that the editorial staff of the Kentucky Enquirer has endorsed Rand Paul for the U.S. Senate.
