WinterPledge finished up last night and everyone here at KET wants to say THANKS to all of you who called or went online to tell us you appreciate our programs and want to see them continue; it was our opportunity to step out of our regular programs and thank you for the support you’ve given us over the years.
Tonight, Monday, December 5th, Kentucky Tonight returns to its regular time slot at 8/7 pm CT. We’re tackling the tough subject of restoration of voting rights for convicted felons. This is Representative Jesse Crenshaw’s House legislation, which has passed the Kentucky House of Representatives several times, but failed in the Senate. Kentucky and Virginia have the distinction of placing tighter restrictions on voting than most other states; 48 states have some level of restriction, but if those are met, allow felon’s to vote in elections.
Our guests tonight are:
- Ed Monahan, Kentucky Public Advocate
- Dave Stengel, Commonwealth’s Attorney for Jefferson County
- John Roach, a Lexington lawyer and former counsel to Governor Ernie Fletcher
- Allen Trimble, Commonwealth’s Attorney for McCreary and Whitely Counties
