Let's support him and don't forget what he has done for KY. He made a mistake and we need to give him another chance. Good luck

Have you had a lobotomy???

He stole from YOU (assuming you're a citizen of KY).

And please clue me in on what he did for Kentucky.

I hope he is sentenced to the maximum, I would cut him some slack, BUT....asking the judge to go to Cancun was just being pompous!

I wonder where he's keeping his money, "broke" people don't fly off to Cancun!!

Yes he stole from you,us as individuals an tax payers and yes everybody has made mistakes but knowingly doing it over and over and over thinking he was "Richie F 'n Farmer" the porn star-king well he was married with 3 kids at home and having girlfriends at work and paying her when nobody ever seen them at a job sight in Kentucky. well he just thought he was above the law and could do anything he wanted to do living all high society on the states money and then to ask the judge to go on a vacation out of the country when he has been unemployed sence his last term in December 5-6 months ago, yeah right the FBI needs to look into 'off sore accounts" your supposed to be broke" a 7 day trip to Cancun, Mexico would cost at least $1000 per person
...asking the judge to go,.. just shows the respect he has for the the laws of the land and this state. He shows no remorse for he's actions but thinking yet again that he is better than most and the average working man. The people in this state needs to show a little back bone and not let this go unpunished and do something about it. He don't think he will get in to any trouble. He needs to respect the law as we do and theres no specisl treatment and the seriousness of the crimes.He really thinks he will not do 1day in jail but he will never do anytime i bet and cant pay back all the money that he stold then he can fly off to Cancun!!

I hope you are right. Would be vindication for all the state workers and taxpayers that got screwed while he spent their money. Who gives a sh*t about him putting Clay County on the map in basketball. He has put Kentucky on the map for being a thieving asshole.

You said it! Who cares about that cocky f'n loser?? He's a thieving piece of shit and I hope he rots in the f'n pen! He's such a f'n joke, he thinks he'll walk, but the Clay 8 never thought they'd be brought down, but where they at now? His is coming, and sooner than later!!

It is funny people say that he put C.C on the map i thought it took a team to win or even go to state, not just one person.Now he will put C.C on the map by going to the pen for a crook something to be proud of. Maybe they should name the road that go's to the Fed prison in C.C Farmer road.
