Kentucky Governor Signs Plea Deal - New York Times
Kentucky Governor Signs Plea Deal - New York Times: "Gov. Ernie Fletcher of Kentucky, who was indicted in May in connection with a hiring scandal, signed an agreement yesterday admitting wrongdoing by his administration and promising to reconstitute the state’s Personnel Board.
Under the deal with the attorney general, all charges will be dropped.
“The governor acknowledges that the evidence strongly indicates wrongdoing by his administration with regard to personnel actions within the merit system,” the seven-page accord said, adding that he takes responsibility and that he “hereby states that these actions were inappropriate.”"
