The past ten days have been tough for Alison Grimes. First the executive director of the State Board of Elections accuses her of multiple ethical and leadership lapses; then the state board affirms her in a resolution, even while the exec director says he stands by his statement. Then on Friday, her father and a fellow Dem consultant are indicted on federal campaign finance violations.
The issues are serious, and could be fatal to her political career. But there are also reasons to suspect there are political motivations behind the attacks.
I've got some thoughts about all of this that I'd like to share.
