Something bothers me about Jared Dearing, the KY Election Board Director (D) who filed the ethics complaint against @KySecofState (Alison Grimes, D), which provided the fodder for @JessicaHuseman's reporting & take down of Grimes. 1/

2/ When Dearing made the complaint against Grimes, the top two Democratic contenders for KY governor were Grimes & Andy Beshear whose father (then governor Steve Beshear) had pardoned Dearing's father in 2015. 

3/ By joining with Republicans to take down Grimes, was Dearing returning a political favor to the Beshear family?

4/ A few years back, Steve Beshear (who pardoned Dearing's father) was one of only a few Democratic governors to make @CREWcrew's list of the most corrupt governors in the United States. 

5/ Andy Beshear is Kentucky's AG, but his top deputy was indicted for bribery. 

6/ Eek.
