I Beg Your Pardon: Daniel Cameron Still Owes Kentucky Answers About Bevin Pardons 

Days after the Democratic Governors Association launched to hold Daniel Cameron accountable for failing to do his job, Cameron has refused to answer key questions when asked directly about his failed record.

Cameron was asked by several local news outlets to explain his failure to fulfill his promise to Kentuckians to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate disgraced former Governor Matt Bevin’s pardons of violent criminals, including for a man who pleaded guilty to sexually assaulting and nearly killing a 15-year-old boy, along with a convicted felon whose brother contributed to Bevin’s campaign, or explain why he hired the Bevin crony who wrote a recommendation for the pardons as one of his top advisors. Instead, Cameron repeatedly refused to distance himself from Bevin and his pardon scandal and “sidestepped” questions.

“While Gov. Beshear spent the weekend traveling across the commonwealth talking to Kentuckians about his success in his first term and his vision for the next four years, Daniel Cameron spent it dodging questions about his failed record,” said Democratic Governors Association States Press Secretary Emma O’Brien. “Cameron must explain to the people of Kentucky why after over three years he has failed to investigate Matt Bevin’s pardons of violent criminals. If Daniel Cameron can’t even be trusted to do his current job, he’s certainly not up to be Kentucky’s next Governor.”
