Richie Farmer charged with 42 counts
of violating Kentucky ethics laws

"We have not seen misuse of office at this level in the nearly nine years I've been with the commission," executive director John R. Steffen told reporters.

The previous high for ethics charges against an individual was 16, Steffen said.

The ethics panel also charged seven other people, six of whom are former or current employees of the state Department of Agriculture. The final person charged was Farmer's sister, who works for the Kentucky Registry of Election Finance.

It is disappointing as well as a shameful embarassment that this happened as well as very frustrating and upsetting that another Clay Countian is tagged with corrupt practices and a lack of ethics which tarnishes us all with negative perceptions.

We have many good fine citizens but that story never gets told. We have many fine successful citizens who work everyday as a healthcare providers, as business leaders, as educators, as a regular and very important blue collar worker such a those in the coal, trucking, construction and manufacturing industries, and certainly don't forget our brave men and women in the military that go about their daily routines doing what is right and proper and that story isn't told.

So, please when you see these good, decent, fine folks at family gatherings or other social functions, say hello, say thanks.

Arrogance, self-service, and corruption has caused another elected official to shame themselves, their office, and their family.

When is this going to end, when are the officials going to realize that corruption will be found out, that public service is just that working for the citizens and not working to enrich self and well connected friends.
