Gov. Bevin Under Fire for Use of State-Owned Aircraft

Kentucky’s Republican governor has run into some criticism over his use of taxpayer-owned aircraft, creating another distraction for a reelection campaign already dogged by feuds with teachers, struggles over state pensions and a legal fight with his lieutenant governor.

Gov. Matt Bevin tried to defuse the air travel controversy by having his office release a log disclosing the purposes of his official trips on state-owned aircraft. Bevin’s office said the disclosure goes beyond what Kentucky law requires.

But the state Democratic Party called it a stunt, because it doesn’t address his use of state aircraft for political and personal trips.
