Ethics panel to meet, could discuss complaints

FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) - The Executive Branch Ethics Commission is
scheduled to meet next week in a get-together where members could
be privately briefed on some high-profile allegations involving
Kentucky's gubernatorial campaign.

Republicans have filed ethics complaints about campaign
contributions that Democratic Gov. Steve Beshear has received from
state employees. Democrats alleged in a complaint of their own that
Republican lieutenant gubernatorial candidate Richie Farmer used a
state account to buy a small refrigerator for his home.

The ethics panel, scheduled to meet at 10 a.m. Monday, doesn't
publicly acknowledge or discuss pending complaints.
