One of the most disgusting stories of the year pertains to outgoing Kentucky GOP governor Matt Bevin. Astounding Details
Please consider Kentucky’s GOP Governor Issues Hundreds of Pardons, Many Controversial, Before Leaving Office.
Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin’s term came to an end Tuesday, but not before the Republican took one final chance to kick the concept of justice in the shins on the way out the door by issuing a slew of highly controversial pardons. Since his narrow loss to Democrat Andy Beshear just over a month before departing, Bevin issued 428 pardons, a number to violent criminals, including, the Louisville Courier-Journal reports, “one offender convicted of raping a child, another who hired a hit man to kill his business partner and a third who killed his parents.”
