"I've lived in Lexington for 35 years. Nothing of consequence ever happened on that block.”--Lexington’s Mayor Jim Newberry on WKYT’s “Kentucky Newsmakers,” March 14, 2009.

Lead Archaeologist Hans Mcgworkin could not be reached for comment at the time of release, but a spokesman for the team, speaking on condition of anonymity is quoted as saying that "It is 99.9% certain that what we have discovered is in fact one of the first politicians known to man based on the existing evidence that is currently available."
Further research is underway, the results of which will be released as it becomes available....
