Conway Apologizes for Fancy Farm Profanity
By Jacque Day
Fancy Farm, Ky. – Attorney General Jack Conway has apologized for his use of profanity during a speech at the Fancy Farm picnic. Conway, a candidate for the U.S. Senate, campaigned at the church picnic along with six other Senate candidates including Lieutenant Governor Daniel Mongiardo, who called on Conway to apologize for the salty language. Reverend Darrell Venters of Saint Jerome Church in Fancy Farm says Conway's salty speech will likely result in a "no cursing" addition to the ground rules for political speeches. Conway said he "got caught up in the fiery rhetoric" at the picnic and made a reference that he should not have.
