Andy Beshear on Principles & Values

 

 


Kickback investigation resulted in deputy's resignation

One of Beshear's first important decisions after winning election as attorney general was to appoint Tim Longmeyer as his chief deputy. Longmeyer resigned within three months after being caught in a federal investigation of a kickback scheme he ran while he served as a top member of Gov. Steve Beshear's administration. Federal authorities have said they received no evidence that either Andy Beshear or Steve Beshear were aware of the investigation.

Andy Beshear will argue he has fought to help needy Kentuckians in many ways, stressing his efforts to combat the opioid epidemic that includes lawsuits against opioid manufacturers and creation of an opioid disposal program. He'll also talk a lot about what he is mostly known for--filing court actions against what he says have been illegal actions of a Republican governor and General Assembly.
