Mark Hebert just reported that the Henry investigation is on hold.
WHAS has learned of new developments in the criminal investigation of former Lieutenant Governor Steve Henry.
The 16 month investigation has stalled because the part-time prosecutor says he doesn’t have the time or staff to review the findings.
Meanwhile, Henry continues to insist he has done nothing wrong.
WHAS11 reporter Mark Hebert broke the story of possible campaign donation irregularities involving Henry last year and he has been following the state police investigation.
Kentucky State Police tell WHAS11 News they’ve wrapped up their lengthy criminal investigation of Henry. The problem now is finding a prosecutor with the time to read the case and decide if Henry committed a crime.

Mark Hebert didn’t break anything last year. Mark Nickolas did when I gave him the information he needed to write his stories (after Democratic law enforcement officials IGNORED our complaints for several weeks). Then Ryan Alessi “broke” the major stories. Hebert did follow-up interviews with Henry and Leslie Holland.
Henry had this to say:
As for Henry, he says he repeatedly checked with state and federal campaign finance regulators to make sure he wasn’t doing anything wrong. He believes the criminal investigation was politically motivated.
Which is absolute BUNK. Absolutely not true. I produced evidence that proves otherwise and you’ll eventually see it all when this investigation comes to a close. So did many, many others. Further, I know first-hand that KSP investigators worked diligently on the case and left no stone unturned. They deserve a medal or something similar for the amount of work they did.
We call on Attorney General Jack Conway to move this case forward. The Commonwealth of Kentucky has been waiting for nearly two years for this investigation to come to an end. We deserve to know the findings of the investigation. We deserve to know the truth about what happened.
P.S. The investigation goes way deeper than just Steve Henry’s old U.S. Senate account. That just scratches the surface.
