Kentucky Governor Apologizes for Associating Teacher Protests with Child Sexual Assault

Bevin said on Friday that single-parent households in the state had been forced to leave children at home and in peril of not just sexual assault, but of ingesting poison or being offered drugs for the first time.

Melanie Conklin, a spokeswoman for the Democratic Party of Wisconsin, said Bevin's comments were "awful" and that Bevin and Gov. Scott Walker had both proposed major cuts to public education. It is not my intent to hurt anyone.but to help us all move forward. "You are quite right - we all need each other".

"Clearly a tremendous amount of people did not fully appreciate what it was that I was communicating and I hurt a lot of people - that's my responsibility and I apologize for those who had been hurt by the things that were said was not my intent whatsoever".

Nashville takes 2-0 series lead after 5-4 win over Avalanche
One of the biggest advantages of the Predators is their depth they can roll all four lines throughout the game. The Preds did not play their best hockey in the first two games and yet they are still up 2-0 in the series.

"The words that people say can have unintended consequences", Bevin said in the video.

The governor went on to apologize to those he claims were hurt by his words and said he takes responsibility for his words.

That same day, Bevin blasted the teachers for taking the day off to protest. "I'm offended by the idea that people so cavalierly and so flippantly disregarded what's truly best for children". He made the initial remarks on Friday, the day many Kentucky public schools had to close because teachers went on strike to the state Capitol.

The Cohen investigation is the real investigation, and Trump's in peril
The prosecutors noted Cohen had personally not turned over any documents to Robert Mueller's Special Counsel investigation. He was pressed on whether Daniels's decision to attend the hearing is meant to "provoke" Cohen in any way.

"Gov. Bevin's comments last night saying teachers rallying in Frankfort led to children being sexually abused are morally reprehensible and must be condemned by all Kentuckians. If we want to create a world without child abuse, we can not tolerate the governor's comments". "Governor Bevin is on the wrong side of history, and as his latest outburst shows, he's also on the wrong side of simple decency".

Acting-House Speaker David Osborne said he didn't understand why Bevin made the statement because he didn't hear of any problems that arose from the protests.

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin apologized on Sunday for saying last week that a teacher walkout that shut schools in numerous state's districts led to children being sexually assaulted. "His insults of teachers over the previous year have been beneath the decorum of any respectable elected official".
