Quick Update to the Quick Update: Little Kennie Backs Down

Just a short time ago I posted "Quick Update: Ark Tax Battle and Cost of Protecting Religious 'Sensibilities'" about how the State of Kentucky responded to little kennie's tactic of selling his $48 million land to himself, in the guise of one of his non-profits.  It appeared to be an attempt to avoid paying an entertainment tax of $0.50 a ticket. If the last year is any indicator, that tax might be in the neighborhood of half a million dollars.

Well the State responded by suspending kennie's $18 million dollar sale tax rebate. And just a short time after I posted my comments, I caught this from the Sensuous Curmudgeon: "Hambo Reverses the Ark Transfer" and . . . lo and behold . . . little kennie switched things back. Anyone else less than surprised?

Of course this is just round 3, or is it 4.  Let's see.  Round 1 was little kennie failing in his promises to bring an economic turnaround to the local area.  Round 2 was the county implementing the entertaining tax to support emergency services.  Round 3 was kennie's selling his own land to himself in an apparent effort to avoid the tax.  So Round 4 was the State saying 'Say goodbye to sales tax rebate', that makes little kennie's rapid turnaround Round 5.  I guess the next move will be kennie's next effort in keeping both the sales tax rebate AND not paying the entertainment tax.
