A Trump copycat? Kentucky’s GOP Governor hasn’t shared tax returns

KY Gov under investigation for 'misuse of official resources'

Matt Bevin, the current governor of Kentucky, is in a race to the finish line with Democrat Andy Beshear, the current Attorney General of Kentucky. Bevin has the support of President Donald Trump which may be why he has pulled the Trump move and not sharing his tax returns.

Beshear who is also running for the Governor’s seat has already released his returns because he believes the governor should “work” for the people as he pointed out in a Facebook post slamming Bevin’s choice of keeping his tax returns out of sight.

Another day, another contradiction from Matt Bevin. Instead of coming clean like he said he would, Matt Bevin refuses to…

It’s a page straight out of Trump’s book which really isn’t that surprising since Bevin and the President are pretty tight and the President is bolstering the Bevin campaign. Trump will be making a stop in Kentucky the day before the election to pitch for the governor, and VP Pence made his appearance on Nov 1.

Bevin has also featured the President in his campaign ads which are full of Trumpian language such as a reference to how Beshear will allow “illegal immigrants to swarm” Kentucky. The Governor doesn’t appear to be worried about the taint of the impeachment inquiry hurting his campaign as he is still touting his Trump connection and declaring “I will stand proudly with this president and vice-president and their administration.”

The rest of the country, however, is watching closely to see whether the lawless acts of the president benefit the Democrats at the state level or whether the Republicans are able to stir up enough anger over the inquiry to motivate those Trump-followers in his rural base.
