Republicans are corrupt and all that, but could KY Gov. Ernie Fletcher really be this stupid?

Governor Ernie Fletcher has called a news conference for a major announcement regarding the merit hiring investigation. The conference is scheduled for 6 p.m. (EDT) tonight.

Reports from the media are inconsistent, but there is a consensus emerging that Fletcher is issuing pardons -- some say nine of them. Mark Hebert (WHAS-11 Louisville) and Bill Bryant (WKYT-27 Lexington) are both reporting online. Sources inside the investigation have told BluegrassReport.org that they expect Fletcher will pardon himself as well.

Local news reports will lead with Katrina, making this the most opportune time for Fletcher to pull this sort of gambit. But he pulls the trigger, and he may be facing impeachment proceedings.
