Gov. Fascist Dictator Declares Self Above Law

Scratch that.  It's Gov. Screaming Toddler whose only response to be caught in a crime is to scream "you can't do that! Mommmmmmmmyyyyyy make them stop!"

Yes they can do that and yes they are doing exactly that.

Gov. Matt Bevin said Thursday a special House committee does not have the authority to investigate his handling of a multimillion-dollar road project in Jessamine County and summon witnesses for testimony under oath.

Bevin’s general counsel, Steve Pitt, informed the committee’s chairman, Democratic Rep. Jim Wayne of Louisville, of the governor’s opinion in a two-page letter Thursday. Pitt also told Wayne in the letter that two Transportation Cabinet employees will not be testifying at a scheduled meeting Friday of the House Investigatory Committee on Executive Actions.

Wayne said he was studying Pitt’s letter and would not comment on it until Friday’s meeting.

House Speaker Greg Stumbo, D-Prestonsburg, appointed the panel earlier this month to investigate claims that Bevin delayed an $11 million extension of East Brannon Road in Jessamine County as political retribution against Democratic Rep. Russ Meyer of Nicholasville for not switching political parties last December.
