FRANKFORT, KY (SPECTRUM NEWS) After an hours long closed meeting Tuesday, the Kentucky Board of Elections announced how they would move on after a senior staffer made seriously allegations of harassment and misuse of power by Secretary of State Alison Lundergan Grimes.
Monday, the Executive Director of the State Board of Elections, Jared Dearing, sent a letter to board members, making several complaints about Grimes. In the letter, Dearing wrote Grimes was weakening the system of checks and balances. He sad Grimes accessed the voter registration database to check backgrounds of potential hires and for other reasons. Grimes admits doing that- but says thats part of her job. It is what is required and set forth in statute to certify voter registration turnout. Statistics that I know members of the media here often ask of me and my staff. We have to have access to the tools to be able to do that.- There has never been any directive from myself, my staff, from any of our attorneys to not follow the law, explained Grimes. Dearing also claims Grimes harassed him at work- even calling his family at home to complain about him. A move Grimes denies.It is absurd, it is without any basis. I have never threatened any family member, his family or his job, Grimes said. Grimes also denied allegations that she told Dearing to stop working to comply with an order from the Department of Justice to clean out the voter rolls.

I thought it was about Elon Musk’s girlfriend at first!
Grimes supported Hillary and that is enough for me to know she is not of sound judgement. She was possibly the only halfway decent looking Democrat but when she spoke she lost her mind.
She was one of the “new stars of the Democratic Party” who was supposed to knock off Mitch McConnell in 2014.
