Bevin employs scorched-earth policy in classless exit from role as governor

If there’s anything to make out of Gov. Matt Bevin’s Wednesday round of interviews on conservative radio stations, it’s that 12:01 a.m. Tuesday can’t come fast enough. That’s when Andy Beshear will be sworn in, effectively ending four years of a time in Kentucky’s history in which we laid waste to political conventions of honesty, decency and civility. On Wednesday, Bevin took to talk radio to imply, yet again, that some form of voter fraud had cost him a second term. He went on to say the election of Andy Beshear would somehow lead to abortion clinics “popping up all over” Kentucky. None of this is true. It’s all poppycock. And it’s classless.
