UofL trustee provided the cash for the strippers, says former board chairman

Louisville’s stripper scandal is the gift that keeps on giving.

In a new story from WDRB, we now know J. David Grissom, the former chairman of the board of trustees at UofL, said under oath that a university trustee provided the cash for the strippers. Grissom was told this piece of info from former UofL President James Ramsey, he said, although Ramsey did not divulge which trustee was picking up the tab for the stripper stuff.

“He (Ramsey) told me that one of his board members was the cash source for paying off the strippers in the stripper incident,” Grissom said, according to WDRB.

A MEMBER OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES PAID FOR STRIPPER PARTIES???? WHAT A PLOT TWIST!!!! Oh, man. I didn’t see this one coming on a random Monday afternoon in August. All this time we’ve been wondering who was coughing up the money for Katina and the girls and it might just end up being a member of the board. Don’t ever change, Louisville.

For what it’s worth, Ramsey, through his lawyer, denied it and said Grissom’s statement is “ridiculous.”

    This. Is. Amazing.

    The only way it could get better is if Pitino was physically there and participating, or if Ramsey helped fund it.

      If Pitino was participating they would have gotten a nice discount.

    Excuse me while I go pop some popcorn for when somebody inevitably puts a mic in front of Coach 2’s face.

    The bigger question is who paid Andre Magee to go away give up his lively hood and stay hush hush.

      My logic ( however flawed) was that his ire was wrought from the fear of being connected to that event.

    Louisville fans are salty their law suit failed. Maybe you could have won it if you didn’t hire a lawyer dumb enough to take any Louisville fans case.

    The guy is the former chairman of the board AND said it under oath. Ramsey better damn well do better than “ridiculous”.
