FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - Governor Fletcher's legal adviser says
Fletcher has fully complied with state law in making appointments
to the governing boards at the University of Kentucky and
University of Louisville.
David Fleenor made the statement in a letter to Democratic
Attorney General Greg Stumbo today. Stumbo said he now will ask a
judge to weigh in on the issue.
Fleenor's letter was in response to Stumbo's contention that
Fletcher, a Republican, had violated a law requiring proportional
representation of the two leading political parties on the
university boards based on voter registration.
Stumbo argued that Fletcher has appointed too many Republicans
to the boards.
