Anyone here have insight into the continuing saga of the Beshear administration vs. Rich Storm?

I seriously doubt that folks in the administration are unaware KDFWR doesn't receive state funding. So the administration's argument for the single year contract due to a budget shortfall rings a little hollow. I have no idea who's right on the legal arguments between Beshear and KDFWR/Cameron about who can/can't fire whom, etc. In any case I'm assuming there's either more to this story that hasn't yet been reported OR it's a continuation of the turf war between Beshear and Cameron and KDFWR is collateral damage. Typical Kentucky politics?
