First Corrupt Bevin Appointee Resigns; Matt Bevin Doesn't Know What the Fuck He's Doing, Part Eleven

That's what you get when you stuff your administration with unprosecuted criminals from the last repug administration.

Tom Loftus at the Courier:

The man recently appointed as director of resorts for the Kentucky Department of Parks despite a past violation of the state government ethics code has resigned.


The Bevin administration announced on Jan. 14 that Rittenhouse, who lives in Cadiz and previously managed two state park resorts, had been appointed as director of resorts – a job that pays $75,190 per year.

But the following day The Courier-Journal and cn/2 reported that just one year ago the ethics commission found Rittenhouse violated the ethics code. Rittenhouse admitted that evidence showed he violated the code and he paid a $1,500 civil penalty in a settlement with the commission last January.
