Listen to Stumbo’s threatening voicemail;
Speaker Stumbo’s threats to impeach Gov. Bevin over a delayed road project
FRANKFORT, Ky. (Oct. 5, 2016) -Below is a statement from Press Secretary Amanda Stamper in response to today’s press conference:
“This voicemail was left by House Speaker Greg Stumbo 39 days after he called for the Governor’s impeachment. Stumbo has hit the peak of desperation with his political charade in an attempt to draw attention away from the corruption being exposed in Kentucky’s Democratic Party and his support of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama’s job-killing agenda.”
Listen to full voicemail sent by Speaker Greg Stumbo to Rep. David Floyd on Oct. 3, 2016.
Speaker Stumbo’s threats to impeach Gov. Bevin over a delayed road project in Jessamine County are ridiculous. The Courier-Journal previously reported on problems with the project. Attached are two previously unreleased memos by career lawyers at the Kentucky Transportation Cabinet (KYTC) that show that the delay was both legally and appropriately handled.
In one email from February 2016, the deputy General Counsel at KYTC under former Gov. Beshear stated, “The project is one that should have never been let much less executed contracts on.”
Background on attached memos:
Will Fogle is a lawyer in the KYTC. He served all eight years under the Beshear Administration. He has worked for KYTC since October 2008.
Todd Shipp is a 26 year employee and deputy general counsel at the KYTC. He served all eight years under the Beshear Administration.
