Well it is very obvious you have not done any background checking on Rush or you would know what I posted is legitimate.
If you would do just a little bit of digging, put forth a little effort you will find every bit of this in print.
As to the media being told to sit on it as well as being kept in the dark, it was admitted to by not only a reporter but an on line anchor person.
So do not warn me to be cautious about writing about Rush's past. The truth is the truth and the truth will out.
I know the man and read the information regarding the Bar Association. There is also extensive information of the mishandling of more than one client's funds and, if I recall, possible charges brought against the man.
He is not well thought of by those in New Albany 'in the know' . He simply does not have a good reputation.
What happened was that Rush was caught with the Assistant Chief of Detective's girlfriend by the man himself in a 'compromising' situation and an altercation resulted. Apparently the police got involved and this is the result.
The entire nasty little story has not hit the media(and I doubt that it ever will) as the NAPD continues to say it is 'under investigation' to protect Rush, the Detective and the woman who is the owner of the Bed and Breakfast Cafe, (where I believe the incident took place) from further embarrassment.
This is NOT the NAPD I once worked for! Things like this just would not have been tolerated. I KNOW for a fact.
It is a bright day indeed for the city that Rush did not get any further in his bid for Hancock's seat on the bench.
