: RODE HIM LIKE A ONE-HUMP CAMEL -- ".(State Auditor George) Adkins made a reputation pursuing state spending in former Gov. Julian Carroll's administration. 'We rode poor old Gov. Carroll like a one-humped camel,' (Michael Wayne) Gayhart said, chuckling. 'I don't mean that in a bad way, but we looked at every dirty little thing.'." Gayhart is a candidate for auditor in this year's election. From an article, "The Race for auditor: Both parties' hopefuls discount front-runner," The Herald-Leader, Lexington, Ky., May 14, 2003.
