    The Republican governor of Kentucky has pardoned 161 felons, including murderers and pedo rapists.

    "That list of pardons includes Blake Walker, who was convicted in 2003 of killing his parents; Kurt Smith, who as a teenager was found guilty of murdering his 6-week old son; Delmar Partin, who was convicted of beheading a woman and stuffing her in a barrel; and Kathy Ann Harless, who left her newborn baby to die in an outhouse.

    The former Republican governor wrote in his executive order that Harless “has paid enough for her death of her new-born son.”

    Bevin pardoned and commuted the sentences of Dayton Jones, who was convicted in 2016 of sexually assaulting a 15-year-old boy; and Patrick Baker, who convicted of reckless homicide in 2017. The Courier Journal reported that Baker’s family had held a fundraiser and donated to Bevin’s gubernatorial campaigns. Baker served two years of a 19-year sentence, while his co-defendants are still in prison, the newspaper reported.

    The former governor did the same for Micah Schoettle, convicted last year of raping a child and sentenced to 23 years in prison."

    Why did you call him the "Democrat governor of Kentucky"? He's the outgoing REPUBLICAN governor...the one who lost the election despite having fat donnie stump for him.

    You're right. I confused him with his successor.

    WTF Kentucky?

    "Bevin’s successor, newly elected Gov. Andy Beshear, on Thursday announced he restored voting rights for over 140,000 former felons in the state through an executive order."

    The only elect governors that love felons?

    Didn’t Bubba and Ears do much the same when they left office? This seems to be something the Ruling Class likes to do.
