Bevin official resigns in scandal already

The totalitarian Matt Bevin regime is only 6 weeks old, and already a scandal has forced the resignation of a Bevin-appointed official.

The New Hampshire Forehead recently appointed John Rittenhouse to the Kentucky Department of Parks. But it turned out Rittenhouse had a serious violation of state ethics law only a year ago: After resigning as a manager of a state park, he had entered into a contract to buy a restaurant that subleased its location from the parks department. He did so even after being told it was an ethics violation.

Plus, Bevin hired Rittenhouse even after Rittenhouse disclosed the violation on his application.

Now that this scandal has come to light, Rittenhouse has been forced to quit his new post.

Once again, the Kentucky GOP.
