Frankfort, KY – The Republican Party of Kentucky issued the following statement on today’s findings from Auditor Mike Harmon’s office regarding unemployment insurance:
“Today’s report shines further light on the massive scandal of Gov. Andy Beshear’s failed unemployment insurance office. Gov. Beshear ordered Kentuckians out of work and into the unemployment line – and now nearly a year into the crisis, his administration is still extending the pain for families in need, with more than 100,000 claims still outstanding.
“Political games, excuse after excuse, and not accepting responsibility for his administration’s failed policies – and all the while Beshear’s team ignored 400,000 emails asking for help. Simply put, Gov. Andy Beshear’s unemployment insurance scandal is a national disgrace. We applaud Auditor Mike Harmon for keeping a watchful eye on taxpayer dollars and standing up for working families.” – Republican Party of Kentucky spokesman Mike Lonergan
