    Former UK legend and recent Kentucky Ag Commissioner Richie Farmer accused of misuse of state funds stemming from allegations that he used state employees to chauffeur his dog, took rifles purchased with state funds, and installed a basketball court at his home using state workers.

    Judging from the article, his defense seems to center on the fact that he was a UK basketball player and is therefore entitled to receive kickbacks.

    Sweet correlation of last name and occupation, though.

    His mustache should have been prosecuted for crimes against humanity years ago.

    Interesting sidenote:

    Farmer was always suspected of being much older than reported in high school, when he also sported a heavy stache. It seems that many official records in Manchester burned in a fire and his original birth certificate was lost and had to be replaced.

    I spent quite a bit of time off and on playing basketball in that area in HS. My father met a man, a Clay Co. booster, during that time who claimed his daughter was born on the same day in the same hospital as Richie. She graduated 4 years before he did.
