FRANKFORT, Ky. (February 22, 2023) – The Republican Party of Kentucky issued the following statement in response to Senate passage of Senate Bill 99, which would require the Beshear Administration to answer questions about the Governor’s Team Kentucky Slush Fund.
“It appears bipartisanship is alive in Frankfort, at least when it comes to investigating the blunders of the Beshear Administration,” RPK spokesman Sean Southard said. “Private individuals and corporations stepped up to assist Western Kentucky recover from those tornadoes, which brought tragedy and devastation to our state, and the Governor and his team sent an untold amount of money to people unaffected by the tornadoes. As of today, we still don’t know how much money went to the wrong people. We applaud the Senate for holding Andy accountable and seeking more transparency into how he’s used his slush fund.”
