Rep. Hall will face no consequences for ethics sanctions

State Representative Keith Hall will face no consequences for his recent ethics sanctions.

In October, the Legislative Ethics Commission publicly reprimanded Hall and fined him $2,000 for appropriating state money for a Pike County sewer project from which one of his companies took more than $171,000 in no-bid contracts.

In a plea deal, Hall denied guilt but agreed there was enough evidence to make a case against him.

The Lexington Herald reports the commission notified House Speaker Greg Stumbo of its findings so he could take whatever action he considered appropriate.

Stumbo said that would be nothing... and said he believes the commission's ruling stands as a final judgement in the matter.
