Political "slush fund" continues to "tar" both political parties. Isn't it time to let an independent body oversee it? I think it is!

Both parties have consistently used Kentucky's emergency road fund as a political "slush fund" tool, in a tit for tat arrangement whereby tar is traded for votes. What ends up happening is that ALL Kentuckians end up being "tarred" and some will say "also feathered".

The way to prevent this from happening, I think, is to either do away with the "slush fund" -- an extreme remedy --, or turn it over to an independent body that is twice removed from Kentucky politics.

Let's try it for a change, shall we?
