Since his ethics controversy, Lundergan has revitalized his political career. He’s also built up his catering business, which got its start selling hot dogs at football games and county fairs, into a lucrative special events company. At his daughter’s campaign events, trucks with the name “Lundy’s” are often present.
Lundergan has several companies under the parent company SR Holdings Inc., including Signature Special Event Services, which owns the campaign bus. According to a copy of the vehicle’s registration obtained by POLITICO, the title of the bus was transferred to Signature Special Events on Aug. 30, 2013, from a Florida-based company, Robins Fantasy Inc., just as Grimes began to campaign.
The model is a 2003 Prevost, which seats 10 people, has two cabins and is 45 feet long. One online bus company advertises a $395,000 list price for the same model.
From the time the campaign began in earnest last July until the end of June 2014, the Grimes campaign reported bus rental and fuel costs of $10,939 to Signature Special Event Services, according to the expenses in public documents highlighted by the campaign. The money is broken down like this: two payments last October at $1,800 and $380 for bus rentals in the third quarter of 2013; $1,900 in March to Signature for bus rentals in the first quarter of 2014; and an additional $380 on April 30 ahead of the primary. Two additional payments on June 30, for $5,334 and $1,145, covered bus rentals in the second quarter of this year.
The campaign paid another $5,500 to Signature to have it “wrap” the bus with Grimes’ campaign logo, which includes a picture of the candidate.
Several bus operators said the campaign appears to be paying significantly less than usual for its daily rental costs.
“It typically costs about $2,000 per day,” said an operator of a bus company working in Kentucky, who asked for anonymity to avoid angering potential clients.“That’s the industry standard.”
The firm that sold the bus to Lundergan’s company typically charges about $1,500 per day to rent the same vehicle. A similar bus rented this summer by Sen. Lamar Alexander’s (R-Tenn.) campaign ran $1,700 per day, costing the campaign about $40,000 in 15 days, according to campaign sources.
And McConnell, who barnstormed Eastern and Western Kentucky in the last two weeks, spent at least $2,200 per day on his 45-foot bus rental during the three-day swing, a campaign official said.
“If they can show that in fact that her campaign could have gone on the open market and gotten the bus for that price, then it’s market value,” Noble said.“But if all the evidence is that the bus would have cost several times as much, then that’s not going to work.”

"KY DEMS PIN HOPES ON GRIMES, DESPITE CHECKERED FAMILY HISTORY

Democrats are convinced that Senate GOP Leader Mitch McConnell is vulnerable in next year's midterm elections. Even the most vulnerable Senator, however, needs an opponent in order to lose. Actress Ashley Judd floated, and then quickly deflated, her own trial ballon about opposing McConnell. Dem hopes now seem to be focused on 34-year-old Alison Lundergen Grimes to challenge McConnell. She comes into the race with considerable family baggage.

With Judd's exit from the race, and without any Tier-1 candidates to challenge McConnell, KY Democrats are looking to newly elected Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes to take on the veteran Senator. The 34-year-old has only been in elected office for 2 years, but she comes from a storied KY Democrat political family. The stories, however, are not all positive.

Grimes' father is Jerry Lundergan, a long-time KY legislator and one-time head of the KY Democrat party. He was forced to resign both positions when he was convicted of an ethics violation. His catering company inappropriately received a lucrative government contract for an official event, which he failed to disclose. He escaped a prison sentence when a mistrial was ruled in his proceedings.

James Sullivan, a childhood friend of Lundergan, was later convicted of jury tampering in the trial.
It is perhaps no surprise that the Lundergan family have very close ties to former President Bill Clinton. Lundergan's company even catered Chelsea Clinton's wedding. Lundergan was also Kentucky Chair for Hillary's campaign for President in 2008.
Democrats may have no other option than a neophyte scion of a political dynasty with a checkered heritage. Such is the state of politics in the Bluegrass State. If Grimes were to run, Clinton would no doubt make appearances on her behalf, but haven't we reached the sell-by date on corrupt Southern political dynasties? "

something funny there, let's compare, California Adult smoking rate reaches historic low 11.9% smokers down from 13.1% in 2009. Kentucky smokers rate is 29%, worstest in nation, so they say? California has 36,000,000 million people in state, I am going to round off numbers to make math easy, 12% of 36 million is 4,320,000 smokers, Kentucky as 30% of 4,200,000 is 1,260,000. California has 3 times as many smokers as KY, but Ky s number 1 in cancer, number 1 in Influenza Pneumonia, number 3 Chronic Lung disease in the nation! how could that be, you see it' TRICKERY.
