RPK Chairman on House Democrats’ opposition to continuing investigation

Chairman of the Republican Party of Kentucky, Steve Robertson, released the following statement today in response to House Democrats’ opposition to continuing the investigation of sexual harassment and misconduct in the Kentucky House of Representatives:

“It is apparent House Democrats have no interest in changing the culture at the Legislative Research Commission and within its own chamber. Yesterday, House Democrat leaders unanimously opposed an independent, bipartisan audit of the LRC by a nationally recognized organization – a move that even Senate Democrats endorsed. And today, House Democrats appointed to a special committee, which was charged with investigating sexual harassment and misconduct, unilaterally shut down the investigation without issuing a report,” said Steve Robertson, Chairman of the Republican Party of Kentucky. “Recent actions of House Democrats and their leaders are nothing short of appalling. Kentuckians deserve transparency in government, but House Democrats are more interested in fog and obfuscation.”
