FRANKFORT, KY (AP) — A legislative panel reviewing a petition to impeach Kentucky’s governor has made filings from both sides open to the public.
Deliberations on the matter were being conducted behind closed doors, however.
The Republican-led committee voted to make the petition by four Kentuckians public Wednesday. It then went into a closed-door session.
It calls for Gov. Andy Beshear’s impeachment for his restrictions to combat the spread of COVID-19.
The Democratic governor has said there are “zero grounds” for his removal. Beshear submitted a response to the impeachment petition.
The committee chairman says three of the petitioners then offered a written reply.
