According to the complaint, in June 2004, CLM Discount Tobacco Inc., Meade's company, affixed stamps to 2 million “One” brand cigarettes.
“One” brand, manufactured by Blend Commercial Exportadora, was removed from the Tobacco Product Directory effective June 1, 2004 according to representatives of the Excise Tax Section of the Department of Revenue.
According to court documents for the civil action,“CLM knew of the law and its obligation to comply with it because it had received written notice of the publication of the directory from the Revenue Cabinet, and had actual or constructive notice of the removal of ‘One' brand from the Tobacco Product Directory by virtue of online updates and direct notifications by the Department of Revenue.”
Meade maintains that those laws were not in effect when the complaint was filed, though a cursory review of the Kentucky Revised Statutes shows the laws in effect as of April 6, 2003.
In a telephone interview, Greg Stumbo said,“I didn't know anything about it (the complaint) until I read it in the paper. I talked to Meade after he was served, and he didn't mention it.”
“That complaint falls under the tobacco Master Settlement Agreement (MSA), and all of those legal cases are handled by Michael Plumly,” said Stumbo.“That's all he does, and he didn't really report to us.”
Plumly did not immediately return calls.
According to Allison Martin, public information officer for the Attorney General's Office,“Attorneys in the AG's office were reviewing tobacco cases that were not served, and found two outstanding.” CLM was one of the two.
In regard to the MSA, Stumbo said,“When distributors or wholesalers try to skirt by the MSA, it jeopardizes the money that Kentucky receives because of the settlement.” Stumbo said the amount shrinks every year, but he estimated the amount in the hundreds of millions.
Though Meade maintains the timing is politically motivated Franklin Circuit Court records indicate that there had been two previous attempts to serve the complaint, once by certified mail in 2004, which had been returned unable to locate, and again in August 2007 in person.
Meade has also questioned Stumbo's residency, saying, he “didn't think Greg had lived here in over 12 years, and only comes in to golf.” According to Stumbo, he has maintained a condominium at Griffin Gate since he was in Legislature because he had to be in Frankfort. The new home being constructed in Lexington is being built to sell by Stumbo's wife.
“It's like going away to college,” said Stumbo.“I've always maintained my residency in Floyd County.”
According to the Floyd County Clerk's Office, voting records show that Stumbo has consistently voted in Prestonsburg.
Stumbo won the Democratic nominating convention, beating Meade by a weighted vote of 19,474 to 1,107, to earn his party's nomination for the Feb. 5 special election, but the two will likely face off again in the May primary.
Stumbo said he is looking forward to the special election and said winning the nomination,“feels great!”
“It's good to be coming back to represent the people of the 95th district,” said Stumbo “I hope my many years of experience can help the county get moving.”
Meade said he believes there were 42 delegates not present at the nomination, and that intimidation may have played a factor.
In response to the allegations Keith Bartley, county attorney and Democratic chairman for Floyd County, said,“I absolutely do not believe that anyone on the committee was intimidated, and if Meade alleges otherwise, as party chairman, I would like to see proof of that.”
Bartley flatly added,“Meade is no longer an issue. The Democratic party is now focusing on the special election against Republican Larry D. Brown.
“If Meade were a good Democrat, the way he has always claimed to be, he would support the party's nomination,” Bartley finished.
Meade denied rumors that he is backing the Republican Larry D. Brown in the special election.

Chuck Meade has lied about so many people and hurt so many people and their families, that he should be ran out of the state. If you truly want to get back at this man, do not shop at red box tobacco outlet in Prestonsburg or clm in Hazard. Also, do not purchase anything from his wholesale in Allen. If we stick together and spread the word, we can shut him down, and stop his evil doings!
