Gov. Matt Bevin on Pope Dan Johnson, loaning his campaign $4+ million, 2018 outlook, more

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin visited my WHAS Radio studio yesterday to discuss multiple allegations of wrongdoing by controversial conservative state representative Dan Johnson. The “pope” of Heart of Fire Church was accused of molesting a 17-year-old parishioner in 2012. Johnson met with media earlier in the day. Governor Bevin and I discussed his situation at length in this interview.

About 24 hours later, Johnson would take his own life by shooting himself in the head in Bullitt County.

Pastor Dan Johnson drove to a remote area and killed himself the next day after posting on Facebook that he was innocent. He alluded to PTSD issues and declared that he was now heading to his real home in Heaven.

Ky State Rep. Dan Johnson speaks with the media one day before killing himself following charges of molestation of a 17-year-old church parishioner.

Bevin tweeted about Johnson’s suicide shortly after the news was released.

Even though the man had just killed himself, many commenters in the thread below the governor’s tweet were heavily critical.

Twitter responses were ablaze for Republican Wesley Morgan’s claims that Johnson was a “good man” and that the media and Kentucky GOP induced his suicide.

One day after Johnson killed himself, his widow was already doing interviews and proposing that Governor Bevin appoint her to finish his term. Rebecca Johnson even cursed and insulted the reporter from her church pew.

In the radio interview, Governor Bevin and I discussed stalled action on the pension crisis, sexual harassment claims against other Republican legislators, and the challenge of loaning one’s campaign millions of dollars with a house full of young children.
