Happy Hour: When It Rains, It Pours

  • Former Senator Rosalind Kurita, whose state senate seat fell victim to a nasty heist by her own party a few months back, is now being slapped with $6,000 in fines for various campaign finance violations. Not exactly a banner year. [WTVF]
  • The Tennessean almost gives us its top photos of the year, which would have been a really cool thing to look at. And by “almost,” we mean there’s a headline but no content. D’oh! [Tennessean]
  • City officials in the ‘Noog are reeling after finding out that an employee faked breast cancer to collect donations of money and vacation time from coworkers. The 37-year old woman, Keele Maynor, finally came clean but says she has no idea why she did it. [WTVF]
  • The governor wants to hold off on his budget address for a few months while Congress figures out a possible economic stimulus package for states. If it passes, state departments may only have to cut 8% instead of the anticipated 15% from their budgets. [WSMV]
