Chandler Speaks Out Against Corruption

Louisville, Kentucky – Democratic Gubernatorial candidate Ben Chandler says one of his top goals is to clean up state government. In particular, Chandler says the State Transportation Cabinet needs to be overhauled. Two construction companies have sued the Transportation Cabinet, alleging racketeering and civil rights violations in connection with the state's Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program.

Chandler, who currently serves as Attorney General in Kentucky, also pledges that he will never pardon members of his campaign or administration who are charged with wrongdoing.
