Kentucky Democratic Party returning Papa John’s contributions

The Kentucky Democratic party has announced it’s giving back contributions made by John Schnatter, the former chairman of Papa John’s.

According to the Courier-Journal, the party is returning $3500 to Schnatter. That money was donated between 1996 and 2018.

There has been no word from the Kentucky Republican Party yet. Schnatter has given far more money to the state GOP party than the Democratic party.

Schnatter has admitted to using a racial slur during a conference call last May.
