ABC Radio has an interesting report on the controversy over 11th hour pardons given by Kentucky's outgoing governor.
According to ABC Radio, the FBI is looking into the flurry of more than 400 pardons Republican Governor Matt Bevin granted after he was defeated in November before he resigned in December. Among those pardoned were reportedly convicted killers and child rapists.
According to ABC Radio, Bevin defended his pardons during an interview with radio station 840 WHAS: "Bevin said he'd made 'the most informed' decisions that he could after speaking to legal and law experts as well as advocates."
It's interesting when we look at our criminal justice system in America. … I don’t care what your ideology -- whether you're liberal or conservative, Republican or Democrat -- we should want there to be integrity in the system."Matt Bevin, former Kentucky governor
According to AP, after losing the governor's race to Democrat Andy Beshear in November, Bevin gave 428 pardons.
The family of one alleged killer who received a pardon reportedly raised $20,000 for Bevin's campaign, though Bevin says he did not personally know anyone he pardoned. The pardoned man maintained his innocence.
I don’t know what the governor was up to but I don’t trust the fbi.
It is a tainted organization of democrat operatives. There is no way that more agents didn’t know what Comey & McCabe were up to & to this day, 3 years later. None have stepped up for the sake of the country.

The fbi is a corrupt organization of democrat operatives
I like your little polls! 🙂 Re this one about what kind of Christmas Tree we have: We've used an artificial one for the past 15 years or so, mainly because our budget would no longer handle the cost of real trees. We prefer a real tree, but chose instead to put that money toward gifts,
A nice artificial one looks great and will last for decades so it is not a "hardship' to use one! 🙂
A very merry Christmas and blessed new year to you and yours! 🙂

THIS MAN WAS BOUGHT. AND EVEN A HI SCHOOL KID COULD SEE THIS. SO LESS SEE JEST THE FBI COMES OUT WITH ??????
Bless you, Mrs. Attkinson and I wish you complete success with the legal issues. Chin up and retain your principles. It is to our chagrin that the so-called mainstream Journalists have completely caved to agendas and completely lost their way in this contemporary time.

Matt Bevin was a good governor who lost re-election because he tried to fix the broken pension system in our state and made a lot of school teachers mad doing it. He also has a Trumpesque personality and background (business) that grates on some people. I suspect he’s not done in politics, which accounts for all the attacks on him even after he has left office. I also do not trust the FBI and find The rumors that they may be investigating to be suspicious and concerning.
