    • pressanykey, you posting alex jones stuff like this. its funky and weak.
      this is what guilty people have to do when they are about ready to be arrested, they’re guilty as hell, they did it, and the only way they can save face is yell its a conspiracy and somebody else is just out to get them.

    • Press, the swamp is deeper that anyone thought:

      The Obama campaign organization, Obama For America, paid nearly a million dollars to the same law firm that the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) used to funnel money to Fusion GPS, the firm that produced the Trump dossier, according to a new report.

      This revelation could mean that President Obama and other administration officials may have, along with the Clinton campaign and the DNC, helped fund the unverified Trump dossier, which was used by the FBI to get a surveillance warrant on a Trump campaign official and used as a roadmap for the FBI’s investigation into any collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

    • Pressanykey is about to get even more scared. Not only Trump campaign Chairman Manafort is being indicted, but the guy who stayed on the Trump campaign all the way through the election and even served on the Trump White House transition team, Gates, he is being criminally indicted too.

      The criminal indictments I’m sure are gonna fire up JoeBiden to start hollerin and distractin about Hillary today too.

  1. McCurdy owes the Evansville Water and Sewer department around $750,000? …we wonder if this water and sewer bill for McCurdy has been paid? …if we don’t pay our water and sewer bill the Water and Sewer department would turn off our water? Normally that would happen. But the McCurdy is plumbed differently than most buildings of its size. Most commercial buildings have two separate water taps one for the service and one for fire protection. The McCurdy does not due to its age. I am surprised the water dept and city did not require them to bring this up to code. You can not by law turn off fire protection for a occupied building. The previous owners got away without paying the bill for the same reason. This was a well known problem at the water dept. I do not understand why the current owners were not made to bring it up to code during the last rehab.

  2. “Slam drunk winner”. Well, that’s a malapropism if I’ve every read one.
    Must be W.C. Fields running in this election.

  3. Regarding the final advance rent payment from Trop ($12,500,000) that payment will occur in 2018 and be assured with Butterfly McGinn at the helm we will hear only crickets. The master of manipulations, a/k/a Russ Lloyd, Jr. will be laundering the money via the Riverboat Fund up into the General Fund and within six months those funds will be spent just like the first installment . . .

  4. I hate to see Connie Robinson may not run again. I talked to her a few times when they wanted to give a tax break on the property on Green River Road. She has my total respect . Her voice for the folks in her ward and all of Evansville will be missed. Thank you for your 20 years.

    • This is very premature speculation. CCO should learn from the speculation about Connie Robinson that she put an end to on Watch Out Evansville last week. She does an excellent job of speaking for herself.

    • hey joe, theres something a lot more on target than this stupid, dumb, ignorant link, and that is:

      “trump campaign advisor, George Papadopoulos who has plead guilty to lying about russian connections to the trump campaign has been “a pro-active cooperative witness for the FBI wearing a wire” with trump staff and team members since july”

      since july!! this guy told everything he knows, and now he’s giving more and more

      tee up more crap joebiden. the guy caved on trump immediately, immeadiately!!

      not good. not good at all.
