record. (Aug. 10) See also AP's posting of this video at http://www.ap.org______http://www.kentucky.com/233/story/11062.htmlPosted on Fri, Oct. 20, 2006 Two for the moneyWASHINGTON - Millionaire coal magnate Bob Murray knew the name to drop in
September 2002, when Mine Safety Health Administration inspectors confronted him
about safety problems at his mines: Sen. Mitch McConnell.Murray, a
large man with a fierce temper, is a huge donor to Republican senators.
McConnell, R-Ky., rose through the ranks by raising money for those senators.
And McConnell is married to Labor Secretary Elaine Chao, whose agency oversees
MSHA.Shouting at a table full of MSHA officials at their district
office in Morgantown, W.Va., Murray said: "Mitch McConnell calls me one of the
five finest men in America, and the last I checked, he was sleeping with your
boss," according to notes of the meeting. "They," Murray added, pointing at two
MSHA men, "are gone."Murray, in a recent interview, denied that he
referred to McConnell "sleeping with" Chao.But nobody disputes that
district manager Tim Thompson, at one end of Murray's jabbing finger and the man
whose notes recorded the meeting, was transferred to another region, away from
Murray's mines. He appealed the transfer for three years until he grudgingly
took retirement in January. Labor Department officials refuse to discuss his
transfer.....Search YouTube to view Rep. Chris Cannon's views on the

I think MR. Murray is correct in his statement regarding AL GORE and global
Wake up America. murray is bad news for everyone. If you have a death wish, work
for murray. If you like to be defiled, work for murray. murray is looking for
another notch on his smoking gun.
