After a judge raised serious questions yesterday about Matt Bevin’s administration’s ruling that over 1,000 Kentucky teachers broke the law, the toxic GOP civil war that the governor started with his own lieutenant governor dominated the news across Kentucky.  

During the last legislative session, educators across the state took action to defend public schools and Kentucky public school students. During his term as governor, Bevin has taken every opportunity to vilify and persecute educators for their advocacy and activism. He called educators thugs and accused them of being responsible for shootings, drug use and sexual assault of children.

“By Tuesday, July 30, the New York Times reported that McConnell was enraged by the nickname, and on Wednesday, July 31, the KDP started taking orders for its merch.”
