Lenny Curry claims he knew nothing about the district’s AC needs.

Hoo boy, wow, okay, deep breath.

Yesterday in an obvious political stunt, Mayor Curry claimed he didn’t know anything about the district’s air conditioner woes when he offered to help. Now you should ask yourself, is he lying, which brings up a whole host of issues, or is he that uninformed which would be even worse.

Is it possible that Curry could have somehow missed all this coverage?

What Curry did was a stunt, pure and simple.

We have real problems and we deserve serious people trying to solve them.
