Kentucky House Rebukes Bevin For Saying Teacher Protest Caused Child Abuse

Kentucky Gov. Matt Bevin

At least 39 school districts in Kentucky had shut down on Friday as teachers traveled to the Capitol asking legislators to override Bevin's veto of state budget and tax reform bills.

Acting-House Speaker David Osborne said he didn't understand why Bevin made the statement because he didn't hear of any problems that arose from the protests.

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin apologized on Sunday for saying a week the teacher walk out that closed colleges in a lot of their nation's districts led to children being sexually attacked.

Teachers from across Kentucky gathered in the state Capitol to rally for increased funding for education on Friday.

Both chambers ended up rebuffing Bevin's vetoes, passing the measures into law.

Some educators on social media said they would wear black on Monday as a show of solidarity against what they viewed as Gov. Matt Bevin's negative comments about teachers.

Bevin said that households from their state had been forced to abandon children at home and in peril of not sexual assault, but of eating poison or being offered medication for the very first time. Bevin asked reporters, according to a video posted on Twitter by WDRB News reporter Marcus Green.

"It is my accountability to symbolize you, not exclusively after I'm talking to you, however after I'm talking in your behalf in methods which might be clear, which might be understood, that do not harm folks and do not confuse folks", he stated.

However, he now takes back the tasteless comparison in a Facebook post: "It is my responsibility to represent you, not only when I'm speaking to you but also when I'm speaking on your behalf".

Democrats quickly condemned Bevin's comments. "His insults of teachers over the previous year have been beneath the decorum of any respectable elected official".

And after watching the video Sunday, she said, 'Seriously? "As a mother, suggesting children were abused as a prop for his political rhetoric is disturbing and absurdly in poor taste".

"It hurts me to think that the things that have been done by this administration will be overshadowed by a statement that is indefensible", Stivers said.
