HINDMAN, Ky. - A state appeals court ruled that Knott County's judge-executive may run for re-election despite a felony conviction for vote-buying. The court said Friday that Republican Randy Thompson is eligible to run because an appeal of his 2008 conviction is still pending with the U.S. Court of Appeals.

Why is he still on appeal? He plans another four years in office. When or is there a court date for him? Why don't they go ahead and have a court date and throw it away and move on. I don't understand how the law works but it seem slow to move where he is concerned.

Who got the vote of the silent majority there slick?
Most of the people that voted in this poll, thought that it actually counted and didn't bother to go vote at the polling station. I love it.

Normally I would congratulate the winner reguardless of who I am for whether they win or loose. However this is one and the only one that I can't find it in my heart to do that. Not when the candidate is a CONVICTED FELON.
I am happy that Ronnie was able to run a clean, honest race, and as someone stated in a post concerning this election, "An Honest Man" can't win an election in Knott County.
