Statement Regarding Use of Public Funds for Planned Parenthood Programs in Kentucky

KY SEAL

“Last week, after repeated requests for information, a high-ranking official with the Kentucky Cabinet for Health & Family Services admitted that it provided at least $331,300 in taxpayer funding through local health departments to “Planned Parenthood of Indiana and Kentucky.” The Cabinet official claimed that only federal funds were involved.

The source of these public funds is irrelevant. Except in emergency situations, only the Kentucky General Assembly has the constitutional authority to direct where funds, collected by the Kentucky Treasurer, will be appropriated.

Given the shocking and undeniable revelations about the marketing of organs and body parts from aborted babies, we are appalled to now learn that taxpayer dollars actually flow through Kentucky State Government into the Continue reading Statement Regarding Use of Public Funds for Planned Parenthood Programs in Kentucky

The Hanging of Bad Talt Hall

Doc M. B. Taylor, the Red Fox, was uncomfortable as the train he was riding in rumbled toward Bluefield, WV, in 1893. He was cramped inside a wooden nursery tree box, attempting to evade arrest and the hangman’s noose for the murder of Bad Ira Mullins and four others. Once in Bluefield he would be put on a train taking him to Florida where he hoped to start a new life.

Railroad workers were suspicious of the box and sent word to Virginia Commonwealth’s Attorney R. P. Bruce and U.S. Marshal Big Ed Hall. Hall mounted his horse and galloped to the station in time to buy a ticket and Continue reading The Red Fox of the Mountains, Part 5

Andy Barr

Dear Friend,

We have had another busy and productive week in Washington ahead of the August District Work Period. I look forward to seeing many of you as I travel and work in Kentucky until Congress reconvenes in September.

I hope you find this update informative, and have a great week!

Kentucky could be the poster child for the negative effects of the President’s War on Coal. This week, I took to the House floor to help educate my colleagues on the damage the President’s policies have had on not only coal communities, but also all Kentuckians who are hurt by higher energy costs. It is time to stand up for American jobs and Continue reading Andy Barr’s Sixth District Report
