Matt Bevin popped by to defend his controversial pardons, and then all hell broke loose

Former Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin texted me to ask if I had time to chat with him on WHAS Radio. Of course I would make time since the former chief executive was still the #1 news topic after his recent pardons of murderers, rapists, and other undesirables.

We jumped right into a wide ranging chat about Bevin’s pardons, wealthy donors requesting pardons for others, and his ultimate legacy.

The governor shocked many by describing in graphic detail the medical examinations of two young alleged sexual assault victims.

Twitter went nuts with people calling Bevin every filthy name in the book, adding medical information that refutes Bevin’s gynecological assumptions.

A law enforcement official sent this letter to me following the interview. Jackie Steele, commonwealth attorney for Knox and Laurel Counties, took exception to Bevin’s claim that convicted murderer Patrick Baker is innocent. Baker was pardoned by Bevin. I asked why he didn’t pardon the two accomplices with Baker that night. Bevin assured me that they were the guilty parties.

Here is Commonwealth Attorney Steele’s complete letter.
