In a weekend post to his My View Matters blog, Louisville blogger Ed Springston is asking for equal time to explain his ethics complaint against Councilwoman Judy Green to the Louisville Metro Council.
After the ethics charges and a removal petition were read into the record at Thursday's council meeting, Green was allowed to make a lengthy statement in her own defense. Springston says that he and Green's former primary opponent, Ray Barker, who filed the other ethics complaint against her, should be allowed to present their side of the case.
Springston published an open letter to the Metro Council:
Seems Ms. Green would rather hide behind lies than truth. Since this was televised on MetroTV, and available to the entire City to view, anyone could clearly be misled by this blatant attempt by Ms. Green to circumvent the official process. By not allowing equal time, or a dissenting voice to respond and counteract these serious misrepresentations, one can reasonably infer and conclude that Ms. green was in fact innocent of all charges and pre judge this case accordingly.
