Kentucky House Rebukes Bevin For Saying Teacher Protest Caused Child Abuse

Bevin's feedback got here shortly after Republican lawmakers voted to override his vetoes of an working price range that included elevated spending for public schooling with the assistance of an accompanying tax improve.

Bevin appeared to attributed the negative response to his comments to a misunderstanding saying the way people interpreted them or the way he said them lead also to unintended consequences. "I'm offended by the idea that people so cavalierly and so flippantly disregarded what's truly best for children".

'It's my responsibility to represent you, not only when I'm speaking to you, but when I'm speaking on your behalf in ways that are clear, that are understood, that don't hurt people and don't confuse people, ' he said. "I guarantee you somewhere in Kentucky today a child was sexually assaulted that was left at home because there was nobody there to watch them".

In a rare off-the-cuff interview with reporters in Frankfort on Friday evening, Gov. Matt Bevin (R-Kentucky) said teachers who called in sick to protest put children's lives in danger.

The comments drew nationwide backlash, including an official condemnation from the Kentucky House of Representatives.

Bevin said he has several family members who are public school teachers and said the issue is "near and dear" to him.

It pushed his total strikes to 40 in all competitions, enough to join Roger Hunt and Ian Rush as the only Liverpool strikers to reach that high water mark.

FRANKFORT- Hours after Governor Bevin insinuated children were being sexually assaulted due to the thousands of teachers protesting at the Capitol, parents and teachers say they are disgusted by his comments. "And so to the extent that I do that well, great, and to the times when I don't do it well, that's on me".

"I apologize for those who have been hurt by the things that were said". And to the times when I don't do it well, that's on me.

'I think he's gotten so much heat that he had to say something, ' Cooper said.

More than 30 school districts were closed, including the two largest school districts, as teachers descended onto the capitol to rally for public funding. Cooper voted for Bevin in 2015 and vowed Saturday to not do it once more.

On Friday, Senate President Robert Stivers said he would hate it if Bevin's comments "marred" his accomplishments. Everyone heard his words.

"His insults of teachers over the previous year have been beneath the decorum of any respectable elected official", Nishimuta wrote in a statement. So that just kind of makes me angry'.
