Domestic Violence Won't Preclude Public Service in KY
Frankfort, KY – Domestic violence convictions won't preclude Kentuckians from running for elected offices. Lawmakers pulled a provision Wednesday that would have added domestic violence to treason and a handful of other misdeeds that would bar would-be politicians from public service. The Kentucky legislature has taken a hard look at domestic violence issues since former lawmaker Steve Nunn was charged with murder in the shooting death last year of his ex-fiancee, Amanda Ross. Lawmakers are expected to vote next week on legislation that would allow people in dating relationships to seek protective orders.
