Beshear Appoints Donor Convicted Of Misdemeanor

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Gov. Steve Beshear has appointed a
campaign donor convicted in 1990 of misdemeanor attempted jury tampering to two state boards including one for Kentucky crime victims.
Beshear appointed James F. Sullivan to the Crime Victims Compensation Board and the Board of Claims. The appointments took
effect on July 1. He also sits on the Kentucky Lottery Board.
Beshear spokesman Dick Brown says the governor was not aware of Sullivan's misdemeanor conviction. Sullivan and his wife each
donated $2,000 to Beshear's gubernatorial campaign.
Members of the Crime Victims Compensation Board are paid $1,500
a month.
