FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - An ethics charge brought last year against
former state Highway Commissioner Marc Williams has been dropped.
The Executive Branch Ethics Commission dismissed the charge at
its July meeting, adopting a recommendation by hearing officer Ann
Sheadel. She noted the only witness who implicated Williams was
former State Highway Engineer Sam Beverage.
There had already been an admission of ethics violations by
Beverage and another former highways engineer concerning the
handling of a Harrison County bridge contract.
Williams was highway commissioner during the administration of
Gov. Ernie Fletcher.
