Allegations surfaced yesterday about state workers being pressured to give money to Gov. Steve Beshear’s campaign by Deputy Justice Cabinet Secretary Charles Geveden.
My advice to the governor: Put a muzzle on Matt Erwin, force Geveden to resign (at a minimum, suspend him for a few days), return the money to the individuals named in the letter and vow to voters that this sort of thing won’t be tolerated.
For those who can’t remember what happens when you double down on a state employee scandal, ask former Gov. Ernie Fletcher.
Yes, it’s more than a little fishy that the whistleblower sent a copy of his complaint to the RPK chair, but the worst kept secret in Frankfort these days is how much dough Beshear’s people have shaken out of merit and non-merit state workers.
It would take a big scandal for Beshear to blow the 24-point lead he has over Williams. I hope this isn’t it.
