Kentucky GOPer charged with rape

Billy Joe Miles is a big Republican businessman from Owensboro who once served as chair of the University of Kentucky Board of Trustees. His daughter is alt-right State Rep. Suzanne Miles.

Now the 76-year-old Billy Joe Miles is being charged with rape, sodomy, and bribing a witness. The indictment says that in July, he "engaged in sexual intercourse with another person by forcible compulsion."

This is just the latest in a series of major scandals to rock the Kentucky GOP lately.
