FRANKFORT, Ky. (AP) — Gov. Andy Beshear is reorganizing a state commission that promotes ethical conduct by elected officials in the executive branch. Beshear says he wants to “restore the Executive Branch Ethics Commission to what it should be.” Beshear, a Democrat, made three appointments to the five-member board and said he would take recommendations from the state attorney general and state auditor for two more positions. Both the AG and the auditor are Republicans. Beshear appointed former state auditor Crit Luallen, former state Sen. David Karem and Roger Crittenden, a former circuit judge.
