Governor Matt Bevin has appointed a former U.S. marshal to aid an investigation into what he says are potential illegal practices of former Governor Steve Beshear. Bevin appointed Kenneth F. Bohac as the inspector general for the Finance Cabinet. 

Kentucky Transportation Cabinet Inspector General David Ray has been fired. Ray tells The Courier-Journal he was surprised when Transportation Secretary Mike Hancock told him Friday he was being dismissed after about 8 years of service. Ray says he was not given a reason. The Inspector General’s office is the Transportation Cabinet’s investigative arm and the position is non-merit, meaning employees like Ray can be fired without cause.  KYTC spokesman Chuck Wolfe says he can’t comment on the reason for the inspector general's dismissal.
