FOX – An organization supporting the separation of church and state is examining a reported meeting held by Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin which they believe was a potential “abuse of power.”
The Freedom From Religion Foundation (FFRF), filed an open records request to Gov. Bevin’s office on Wednesday requesting records related to a “spiritual event” held at the Governor’s Mansion on Monday which included several pastors or ministers.
The letter calls for all records and responses connected to the event, closing with a pointed statement on their view of the event. “As you probably know, hosting campaign events using state resources is illegal. As you likely also know, hosting religious events using state resources is unconstitutional. We will be examining the records for a violation of each rule,” the letter states.
In a separate statement release, FFRF asserts “Bevin has repeatedly used his public office to promote his personal religion.”
The Republican governor is currently campaigning against Democratic Attorney General Andy Beshear in a bid to win re-election. Kentucky voters will go to the polls on November 5 to cast their ballot and decide if Bevin will remain in office or if Beshear will unseat him. READ MORE
