Recently I had received a phone call from the commander of the VFW (Veterans of Foreign Wars) post on Leestown Road in Lexington. Alice Forgy Kerr, who is running for Congress against Ben Chandler, was coming to speak about veterans issues.
I had seen the commercial with Ben Chandler and the man with the American Legion hat. The American Legion, by the way, does not endorse any political candidate. I asked the commander if we were going to be doing anything like that. He said that there would be no press there and no cameras.
That was the way Chandler's meeting was supposed to be. Ben Chandler showed up with a camera crew showing no respect for the VFW. The commander informed me that the camera was a surprise to him. The VFW post charged Chandler a location fee.
