Bevin: Judge is terrible
Governor Matt Bevin is saying the judge who struck down the pension law he signed is "terrible" at his job and makes decisions based on politics.
Bevin called Franklin Circuit Judge Phillip Shepherd a "Liberal Democrat" during a CNBC interview on Thursday. Bevin has criticized Shepherd in the past, calling him an "incompetent hack." Shepherd has not responded to Bevin’s comments.
Bevin said the law was needed to "stop the bleeding" in Kentucky’s pension system, which is one of the worst-funded systems in the country.
