(The Center Square) – Petitioners calling for the impeachment of Kentucky Attorney General Daniel Cameron have asked the Legislative Committee to consider portions of its response, saying Cameron made “significant personal attacks” against them.
The final filing, which was on Monday, continues a caustic back and forth between the pages. On Friday, Cameron filed a response dismissing the petition as “grossly partisan” and inappropriately.
The state House of Representatives received the petition against Cameron on January 22nd. A lawyer representing three unnamed people on the Breonna Taylor Grand Jury signed the document for her.
The jury alleged that Cameron lied to them by withholding information about the case and then lied to the public about what he told them.
The petition, which is also signed by others, contains other allegations related to Cameron’s involvement in lawsuits related to the Pennsylvania presidential election, as well as his involvement in a fund tied to the National Association of Republican Attorneys General, which opened on Jan. January was involved. 6 Attack on the US Capitol.
Cameron’s response, filed by Assistant Attorney General Barry Dunn, Assistant Assistant Victor Maddox, and private attorney Christopher Thacker, stated that the petitioners had not listed any criminal offenses.
The response also indicated that the signatories included the Democratic Party leader and Anna Whites, an attorney who represented the Kentucky Democratic Party. The white husband was also a top adviser to Greg Stumbo, Cameron’s opponent in the 2019 election.
“Given the important work you have to face in this short session, it is unfortunate that you have to waste your time on the petitioners’ unsubstantiated claims,” Cameron’s reply said.
The whites rejected Monday, saying the attorney general’s response contained gender bias and criticized her for her previous work as well as that of her husband.
“There is no place in this process to belittle the individuals and voters who raise such concerns,” she said, adding that comments about her and other petitioners should be removed from the response.
It is uncertain when the House’s special committee handling impeachment motions will make a decision on the case. The panel has two other petitions, including one against Governor Andy Beshear.
After receiving Beshear’s response to the petition last week, the committee asked Amy Cubbage, Beshear’s attorney, for communications regarding its dispositions on religious organizations and a proposed travel ban.
The committee set a deadline of 5:00 p.m. on Monday for these recordings.
