Forget the corporate media dust-up over a Rand Paul supporter attacking a MoveOn.org activist. That incident pales in comparison to a story about the brother of Paul’s opponent in the race for Kentucky’s Senate seat, Jack Conway. Jack Conway and his supporters are involved in a cover-up and an attempt to obstruct justice, but this does not seem to be on the corporate media’s radar screen. On Saturday, the Louisville Courier-Journal published a story about Conway’s brother, Matthew, who resigned from the Jefferson County, Kentucky, attorney’s office to enter private practice after he was tipped off by Louisville narcotics detectives twice in the past two years that he was under investigation for possible drug use or trafficking. Matthew C. Conway was an assistant commonwealth’s attorney, a position he still holds, when detectives tipped him off on a second drug-related investigation. In a clear case of preferential treatment and a cover-up to protect Jack Conway, the Jefferson County Attorney’s Office decided in August that no charges would be filed against Matthew Conway or the narcotics detectives involved in tipping him off.
The more you look at Jack Conway, the worse it gets. Yesterday we reported on Conway’s effort to obstruct justice in a criminal drug investigation of his brother. Today we report that Jack Conway is on the payroll of a company that pushes a dangerous drug, OxyContin. The NADDI, the National Association of Drug Diversion Investigators, dropped a $50,000 check on Kentucky Attorney General Jack Conway. On October 25, Marianne Skolek, writing for the Salem-News, reported on Conway’s connection to Purdue Pharma, a Stamford, Connecticut, pharmaceutical company that manufactures the highly addictive opioid analgesic, OxyContin. According to Skolek, the “state of Kentucky was suing Purdue Pharma for the devastation caused by OxyContin in deaths and addictions — and since Purdue Pharma was criminally convicted in Federal Court in 2007 of deceiving physicians and patients about the addictive and abusive qualities of OxyContin, I had a problem with law enforcement being associated with Purdue Pharma’s poster child, NADDI.”
While hyperventilating over the Lauren Valle stomping incident, the corporate media has ignored a far bigger scandal swirling around the Kentucky Senate race – the fact that financial contributors to Jack Conway’s campaign and Conway himself tipped off Conway’s brother to the fact that he was being investigated for trafficking drugs in an admitted obstruction of justice. The Kentucky Courier-Journal, which has favored Conway over Rand Paul in the course of the Senatorial race, hid the bombshell story behind a relatively tame headline this past weekend, presumably in a bid to protect Jack Conway from the blowback of the astounding revelations contained in the five page report written by R.G. Dunlop. The nitty gritty of the issue runs like this – Matthew C. Conway, prosecutor and brother of Jack Conway, the Democratic candidate for U.S. Senator from Kentucky, was under investigation by the Louisville Metro Police for alleged drug use and drug trafficking. Two narcotics detectives involved in the case perverted the course of justice by tipping off Conway to the fact that he was under investigation. At least three narcotics officers are now under internal investigation for “policy violations”.
COMMENT: After all the attempts to smear & attack Rand Paul over what are in most cases non-issues or outright lies, why has the media refused to focus on the issue that Jack Conway’s brother– allegedly a corrupt former prosecutor– was warned prior to a drug raid on his home!? Consider the issues of obstruction of justice and conspiracy to cover-up potentially involved in such a suspicious warning… Daily Paul Posted October 27, 2010 No wonder Conway is tough on drug laws, it appears his brother is a kingpin. We are watching history of Jack Conway’s career sinking into a black hole. NOTICE HOW THE Courier Journal leaves Jack’s name out of the headline! A Jefferson County prosecutor was tipped off by Louisville narcotics detectives twice in the past two years that he was under investigation for possible drug use or trafficking, according to police records obtained by The Courier-Journal. When investigators learned of the leaks and interrogated the two detectives and the prosecutor last March, all three initially gave false or misleading statements about what happened, those records show. The statements of Matthew C. Conway, the prosecutor, were made under oath.
Jack Conway, the Democratic attorney general of Kentucky who is running for U.S. Senate, says he was not involved in a recent criminal investigation involving his brother and drug trafficking. But it appears he — along with other law enforcement officials — tipped his brother off about the investigation. The campaign made a statement distancing Conway from his brother’s investigation in a Saturday story in Louisville’s Courier-Journal. The story was the first to disclose this summer’s drug probe. In August, authorities decided not to file charges against Conway’s brother, Matthew Conway, according to the report. The story notes how a supporter who overheard a narcotics detective speaking about the investigation alerted Jack Conway. Conway’s campaign says the attorney general subsequently aided his brother in getting an attorney. The Courier-Journal also says two detectives accused of leaking the fact that an investigation was taking place to Matthew Conway have been placed on administrative leave until it’s determined whether they violated any policies.
