Steve Beshear doesn’t recall being kicked off the Kentucky Central case in the mid-1990s.
Here’s an excerpt:
The court-appointed liquidator of Kentucky Central at one point barred Steve Beshear from doing further work on the case and informed Beshear that his law firm would have to pay for an ethics investigation, documents show.
This comes after Beshear, the Democratic nominee for governor, has repeatedly claimed he didn’t recall anything about a secret ethics report by a Cincinnati firm, Porter, Wright, Morris & Arthur. And he recently said he wasn’t aware his former firm, Stites & Harbison, paid more than $100,000 for it.
Beshear also said in an interview Friday that he didn’t remember being removed, even temporarily, from the legal process of liquidating the failed insurance giant, Kentucky Central Life Insurance Co. in the 1990s.
Selective memory? We say come clean right now so the future Beshear-Mongiardo administration isn’t tarnished.
And Ernie, before you start to salivate: Not trying to be partisan here, but, uh, your administration is over come November. Save face while you can. Steve Beshear could drop ten points and still win in a landslide. Heck, he could be the creature from Jeepers Creepers and be victorious because Kentuckians want change.
Beshear himself wants the ethics report to be released. So it can’t be that terrible.
This Kentucky Central issue won’t be your savior, Ernest Lee.
