FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - House Speaker Greg Stumbo has turned memos regarding documents shredded by the former head of the Legislative Research Commission over to the Kentucky State Police for a possible investigation.
Stumbo provided the documents to legislative security specialist Rick Devers along with a request for state police to take whatever action is deemed appropriate.
House Republican Floor Leader Jeff Hoover asked for an investigation after former LRC Director Bobby Sherman returned to his office with other LRC staffers on Sunday, two days after he resigned, and shredded documents.
One of the staffers, Deputy Director Robert Jenkins, said the documents that were destroyed were either duplicates or were of a personal nature, including junk mail, mortgage papers and salary comparisons for LRC staff.
