Cameron Faces Intense Backlash From GOP for Plans to Attend Event with Disgraced Attorney Who Pled Guilty to Multiple Charges

A new report from the Courier Journal details how a “rift is emerging” as Daniel Cameron is facing brutal backlash from prominent members of his own party for planning to attend an event hosted by disgraced attorney Eric Deters, who is best known for pleading guilty to multiple charges, including menacing and harassing communications.

Republican Congressman Thomas Massie slammed Cameron and his campaign, saying: “Whoever is advising Daniel Cameron to attend is guilty of political malpractice.”

Congressman Massie also questions why Cameron would “appear at an event organized by a man who lost his license to practice law in multiple states, who has a restraining order against him, who has been arrested for contempt, and who recently pled guilty to three charges of harassing and menacing?”

Additional reports note that Cameron is “alienating” Republicans in Northern Kentucky with his decision.

This comes as Cameron spent this week struggling to explain his campaign donations shakedown scandal after it was revealed that he directly solicited donations from an organization his office was investigating. Cameron has previously faced scrutiny for his failure to investigate Matt Bevin’s corrupt pardons of a rapist and murderers.

“Daniel Cameron’s decision to attend an event hosted by a fringe, suspended attorney, who is best known for pleading guilty to multiple charges, including harassing and menacing, is so out of touch with Kentucky values that he’s under attack from his own party,” said DGA States Press Secretary Emma O’Brien. “Turns out the babysitter Mitch McConnell sent to Kentucky has only made things worse since coming on board the Cameron campaign.”
