On Thursday, August 1, Gov. Bevin held a media conference in front of the Governor’s Mansion. The topic was the July 31 fundraiser for Democratic gubernatorial candidate Beshear that was hosted by EMW clinic owner Dr. Ernest Marshall. KRLA member Schu Montgomery attended and provided photos and narrative for this post:
Governor Matt Bevin emphatically stated that it is “blood money straight up”— the $4,000 contribution given by Dr Ernest Marshall, owner of the Louisville’s EMW abortuary.
“It is the job of the attorney general to defend the laws of the Commonwealth, whether it’s the heartbeat bill or dismemberment or eugenics bills,” Bevin lamented. “This is blood money - using monies from killing Kentuckians to fund a guy whose job it is defend the laws of this state— but refuses to do so.”
Gov. Bevin asserted that the Ernest Marshall’s maxed out on their contribution to Beshear on March 19th during the primary— then four days later the AG removed himself from the lawsuit defending two of the pro-life measures passed by the legislature!
Bevin urged the media to inform the public of this blatant disregard for human life and the peoples’ right to have their laws defended by the Commonwealth’s chief law enforcement officer.
