So far we've dealt with some of the politicians, prostitutes and police officers that are involved in Lexington's sex trafficking industry. I ran for city council in 2010 to bring attention to the corruption and government ties to the human trafficking industry. My campaign wound up ...
A few days after my most recent article, Politicians, prostitutes, priest and pedophiles: The Lexington Connection was published on Examiner.com it was referenced on another news site. A reader on that site pointed out an interesting fact. Googling Deborah Wardlaw only pulls up the ar...
Have you seen me? That is the question posed by the missing children ads on milk cartons and on the walls of the post office. Have you ever stopped, read one of those ads and wondered, "What happened to this child?" We know that some are taken by non-custodial parents and others by cr...
Kentucky becomes the latest state to reign in corrections costs by enacting sentencing reforms. Not to be outdone, a Texas county has gotten creative with drug sentencing in the case of Willie Nelson.
It was a cold, overcast and rainy day in Lexington, Kentucky for the MoveOn.Org "Defend the Dream" rally. I couldn't help but thinking that it matched the mood of America and the World right now.
"We support Wisconsin!" and other signs showed Kentuckians solidarity with Wisconsin union workers. MoveOn.Org organized the nationwide rally to stand up for worker's rights, collective bargaining, attacks on unions and cuts to social programs.
Protests and regime changes are happening all across the Middle East and now we're seeing the unrest in America. Gas prices will rise and as they rise so will the price of eveything else and so will the crime rates.
While the Middle East demanded change from the dictatorships that created these conditions we are now seeing protests in America demanding better working conditions. Starting in Wisconsin and now in Ohio, Americans have started the spark that will eventually lead to real change in th...
WikiLeaks became famous for publishing submissions of private, secret, and classified media from anonymous news sources and news leaks. LexiLeaks plans to expand this idea to the state and local level in Kentucky.
The snow came early this year. Just as the 25 days of the Christmas season had begun Kentucky got a blanket of white. More than usual I'm in the Christmas spirit this year. However, too many of us will sit in jail this Christmas. Worse, some will sit in jail even though they will late...
A colleague of mine on another news site, Alicia Bryner, found these stats regarding police corruption and prostitution. From the Alternet article by Melissa Gira Grant titled " Hypocritical legal crusade against Craigslist will not solve violence against sex trafficking victims. htt...
Let us love. That was the writing on the shirt of a teenager at the Fox Elipsus concert at Dink's Cafe'. I needed a vacation from all of the investigations, corruption, murder, crime and courtroom hi-jinks that I typically report on. I owe thanks to a little girl named Josie for remi...
Racism may be more common in the Deep South but the court system has remained unchanged in the North and the South.
Operation Endgame sounds like something out of a James Bond film. At least that's what I thought when I first started seeing articles written about the Homeland Security and ICE program dealing with illegal immigration.
Time magazine recently featured Bob Schulz on the cover of their magazine. Schulz was characterized as belonging to a new movement of violent militias.
If you think ordering Craigslist to take out the Adult Services section will end prositution ads on the site...think again. The dating section has always had it's share of adult services available. You just have to recognize the code language. A recent review of the site revealed thes...
Marc Anthony Laquinn Buchanan, 27, was arrested Wednesday after testing positive for marijuana use, according to court records. Buchanan was out on bond after being arrested in 2009. Buchanan's grandmother had posted the $50,000 property bond.
Ironically I had changed my company name in ads to American Dream Talent Management when I crossed criminal elements in the police force. So, you could say my American Dream was destroyed.
Let's continue along where we left off and piece together a tale of corruption, murder and organized crime.
On April 26, 2007 Lt. Keith Stevens of the Lexington-Fayette County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the home of my mother, Jane Hignite, with whom I live. My mother was there as was my youngest sibling, Brandon, a 27 year old man who was born with Downs Syndrome. Lt. Stevens told ...
My previous article discussed Mike Comberger and Fantasy's escorts. We talked about how, with the help of local police, Comberger has grown his escort agency into an international, multi-state agency. I mentioned that after Mr. Comberger found out that I was investigating his agency h...
Let's continue our investigation into the murder of Deborah Wardlaw by showing how Mike Comberger, owner of Fantasy's Escorts, became a national powerhouse among prostitutes and escort agencies with a little help from the Lexington police and former Fayette County Attorney, Margaret K...
My last article talked about my efforts to get the officers mentioned by Deborah Wardlaw investigated for her murder. Deborah had called me days prior to her murder to tell me that certain police officers had threatened her life. I cannot tell you how much it can haunt you to have rec...
How do you get a murder investigated when the most likely suspects are police officers? I don't know, you tell me. I tried an experiment after ten years of trying to get officers investigated for the murder of a prostitute. I decided to run for city council and use the opportunities t...
A reader questioned my claim that I had received a virus from a Facebook invitation and other claims in a recent article. I stated in the article that I would be gathering the information and posting it in an update to the article. Due to the possibility that others may question my cl...
