FRANKFORT, Ky. (June 29, 2017) - Communications Director Amanda Stamper today issued the following statement on Attorney General Andy Beshear's sexist attack on Tourism, Arts and Heritage Cabinet Deputy Sec. Regina Stivers:
“It's appalling that AG Andy Beshear questions Regina Stivers' ability to work in state government, especially considering his own track record consists of a prominent accusation of sexual discrimination from Lainie Kaiser, a former assistant attorney general currently suing him.
“Regina has an impressive record of 10+ years of excellence in federal and state public service. She is clearly qualified, having worked for two governors and two United States senators, as well as holding positions in economic development.
“AG Beshear's sexist, baseless attack on a professional woman with impeccable character speaks volumes about his own integrity and character, or lack thereof. As a working woman myself, I am outraged that the Kentucky Attorney General thinks that a qualified woman can only get a job with the help of a man.”
