Frankfort, KY – The Republican Party of Kentucky issued the following statement on today’s latest findings from Auditor Mike Harmon’s office regarding unemployment insurance:
“Gov. Andy Beshear’s failures and mismanagement relentlessly plague the state’s unemployment insurance office. This governor’s failed administration let the politically connected cut the line, mismanage the office, ignored hundreds of thousands of cries for help, dragged his feet on releasing the inspector general’s report and more. To this date, Gov. Beshear has made no effort to refer any of these matters to law enforcement for investigation.
“Gov. Beshear’s administration lets Kentucky families down day after day and month after month for more than a year. Enough is enough – Gov. Beshear needs to own up to these disgraceful failures and act immediately to right the ship. Kentucky families in need of the benefits they were promised can’t wait any longer while Beshear keeps blaming others and passing the buck.”
